”S:t Olavsleden. A Scandinavian Sacred Route” (2015)

“S:t Olavsleden - A Scandinavian Sacred Route, is an artistic research project forming a spiritual and artistic experience. The project focuses on the pilgrimage route S:t Olav, a medieval Christian route that stretches 564 km through Sweden and Norway, from Selånger near the Bothnian Sea, to Trondheim and the Atlantic. The pilgrimage route will function as a meeting point for artists to share ideas and feelings. Through a mobile workshop and the practice of walking, new elements are developed in the artistic process. There will be an online travelogue where the participants upload photographs, thoughts, text and drawings that serve as a record and a window to the world to share their experiences. Another possibility is to gather all the material to create an exhibition as a relevant way of communicating the experience.”
