The quote above are words from one of the forty 13 years old collaborators within the project "Beyond the Blue Mountains". On October 12th, the participants encountered the nature reservoir 'The Border Forest" for the first time . The day was dedicated to greeting the forest, marking the border, hugging the forest, touching the border, breathing in the forest, crossing the border, and collecting fragments of the forest for further documentation.
Beyond the Blue Mountains is a project initiated by Konstfrämjandet Bergslagen, in collaboration with Region Örebro, and Lindesberg Municipality. The project is process-oriented and participatory based, and the works generated will be presented as an exhibition at Gallerirum in Stripa, Lindesberg, opening on May 17th.
