Installation/Encounter as part of Vattenmarknaden (Water Market) -“Konstnärliga avsmyckningar av Norra Djurgårdsstaden, Akt III: Vatten” by @Mossutstallningar – August 16th, 2020

Through different items displayed in the form of a Yunza, a traditional festivity from the andes of Peru where a tree is decorated with presents and colorful decoration as a celebration during the rain-months, the visitors and I were able to talk about water and colonialism, development, access to water and sanitation, displacement of (indigenous) communities, green capitalism, extractivism and pandemias; and what would have happened if the north would be in the south, and the global south in the north.
