The postcard town Trosa Sweden

Can you read between the lines? I can do that too!

A collage of:

General plan for Trosa 2015 and
Anna Bohlin’s opinion on the General Plan in 2015

With a little help from art I bring Trosa Muncipality’s public documents out to the people. How many of the inhabitants have read the General Plan? How many understand what is and is not in the plan? How many have read the comments received for the plan?

The Collage painting takes public documents from municipal quite closed corridors to mix with paint and glue to a board with two different approaches for Trosa municipality’s future. The public documents located in the board completely open to each viewer to absorb, though in shredded form. Can the board raise questions and thoughts?

What does every viewer choose to see? What does every viewer choose to believe in? Will The images stir up, excite, attract laughter, anger, concerns, doubts, fears, start new thoughts?

We all have a relationship to the local environment we have chosen as home base. We can all relate to art depicting our neighborhood, but how?

Who and who has the right to decide what to think and believe about the future of the municipality?

The painting hangs in the Spring Exihibition in Trosa 2016 at Trosa Stadshotell exhibition room 5th to 8th of May 11:00-16:00 Welcome!

    1. Thank you. Trosa is just one hour away from Stockholm, so if you will be on the east coast and near Stockholm you maybe have a chance to visit Trosa 🙂
