In 2022 Wanås Konst Sculpture Park in Sweden is focusing on art projects that drive change and materials development with exhibitions by Danish artist Peter Linde Busk and design collective Numen/For Use. Through newly-produced works and installations, they seek sustainable alternatives and fuse important questions with playful possibilities in art projects that continue the spring exhibition theme by acclaimed children’s book illustrator Beatrice Alemagna. In June, dancer and choreographer Joanna Kotze performs as part of the Live Art program. The spring exhibition opens on March 5, and the vernissage of the summer exhibitions, with the first outdoor sculpture by Peter Linde Busk and Numen/For Use’s installation, takes place on May 7.
