I’m back home from two wonderful and interesting days at the uni in Gothenburg and a conference with the incredible title “Paradise Regained”. (Yes, it’s from Milton.) It was organized by the Faculty of Arts (Humanistiska fakulteten) and was VERY inter disciplinary! All aspects of GARDEN were presented. I had sent in a paper about my verdure tapestry “Road Movie (verdure): Visiting Mom”. Since I was the last speaker day 1 I had to shorten my talk A LOT since we were running late for a dinner. Well, you know how it is. I’m sure everybody still got enough tapestry input. 😉
Day 2 took place at Gunnebo Castle & Garden. Amazing place. Just go there!
Well, this whole experience was rich, different and inspiring. So many enthusiastic academics with great knowledge and skill, meeting each other and an enthusiastic audience with great knowledge and skill.
Congratulations to the organizers, especially Rikard Wingård who also created the beautiful leaflet & poster.
P.S. I also had time to browse through two exhibitions: Helene Schjerfbeck at the Art Museum & LOVE EXPLOSION at the Kunsthalle. Not so much explosion in the first one & not so many golden frames in the second.
