Give me your cap - an interactive outdoor project in Nordanå, Skellefteå (SWE)

Culturescene Kvarken was a co-operation project between artists from Finland and Sweden. The theme for the project was identity and the works were exhibited at the gallery Platform in Vaasa (FIN) and in Sweden. This project was the second part of Inside-Outside and three artists participated.

My work in Sweden consisted of an installation of 90 caps, all donated by people who live in the Ostrobothnia region (FIN) and Västerbotten County (SWE).


I asked people to give me one of their caps and write a description of their personality inside it. During a weekend, the installation worked as an interactive installation, where people could participate by identifying themselves with one cap and be photographed. After the weekend I exhibited the photos on advertising boards in Nordanå park.
