DOING AND NOT DOING AS DOING__________________________________________________ANTI-SYMPOSIUM BY BOBRIKOVA DE CARMEN ______________________UDDEBO SWEDEN 2018




Its amazingly warm down south. I have walked for a month near the ocean after the critics, and im updating the art series in Cádiz, absolutely in love with the light. However i have an invitation for a premiere up north. Gotta go. I take some planes and buses to get to a village in the middle of Sweden. Oscar and Martinka are presenting their latest artwork and i shall be in it. As in previous artworks we have overlapped across Europe (Prague, Viena, Oslo) the art itself will not be visible nor tactile, but rather livable and experimental. Very subtile. 

As an expert in relational art, after a decade in the field, I enjoy the doing and the not doing as doing. In Uddebo I join the dozen of invited artists, historians and curators that shall be part of the anti-symposium, the name used to tag the artworkWe live in a young, fresh and upcoming community, now blossoming after a decade of hard work, in a not-so-long-ago dodgy and decadent atmosphere. Things have changed a lot, and the idea of living in a very social oriented community rather that in the average ultra-capitalistic environment feels as a starter quite ok. 

We eat our free meals in a club-house and enjoy the day with swims in the river. Mostly we talk and talk.. The idea is to have time to talk with everyone without any hurry. That works ok. Subjects are very related to crosspolinations, teaching forms, global tourisification and the various gender troubles. Juicy topics. The locals interact and tell their sweet stories. We, the newcomers, are a bit of an exotic and volatile ingredient since we arrived so abruptly. 

The idea of living together as art is fine. Smithson and the conceptualists were right. The idea is enough. We can speak about the quality and the intensity of the encounters, the landscape, the past and future of our own art in relation with the ongoing process at Uddebo. We shall see how the seed evolutes in the coming years, perhaps the social tension and social capitals may blossom. As usual, i keep some memory of the days, that add a new layer on the ongoing works.
