Traces of Stillness

An art installation in the park by Karin Wiberg and Ida Magntorn
Who are we and where are we going? What is true – untrue, fiction – reality?

Art that encourages exploration and contemplation in Bosjökloster’s surroundings. Hundreds of years ago, individuals seeking wisdom, spiritual tranquility, answers to the eternal questions, made pilgrimages to the convent on the island. Karin’s and Ida’s art draws us in, reminds us of our need for silent moments in the everyday bustle, to compose ourselves and find inner balance and strength. The artwork creates its own world in the public space, a window into a harmonious stillness. Between the outdoors and indoors, between human and nature.

Opening May 19 maj 1 p.m. - 3 p.m.
The exhibition is open all days May 19 - August 23 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Karin Wiberg

is a sculptor with a long list of exhibitions in Sweden and abroad, most recently in Paris and Tokyo.

Karin has always been fascinated by the primeval forest, its mystique, where we feel that we are not on our usual safe footing but instead are stepping into a new and different world. In her sculptures you glimpse the animal wonder in the human and the human gaze in the animal. They watch us and see something that is beyond our consciousness.
