With basic choreography (walking in line), costume/sculpture and sound/voice I would like to create a quiet marching show. In my march different sorts of “somethings” will pass by. It will be performed in different places where people are because they must, not because they necessarily want to.
The artist will connect the components of the march to abstract or concrete concepts derived from contemporary urban development such as “flows” and “communication”. By, for example, giving shape to concepts like “black water/grey water” and “divining-rod”, the artist lets historical and contemporary examples of the human relationship to underground water meet in the march.
During this spring’s travel restrictions caused by the Corona pandemic, Ingela Ihrman has not been able to come to Visborg. All exchange with the urban development project has therefore been organised via digital meetings. To share her work, the artist has sent images and objects to key staff in the Visborg project. The question of how these, and other parts of the artistic process, can be implemented in the coming phases of the urban development project remains an open question and largely up to the participants. Hopefully, key staff in the urban development project will have the opportunity and will want to engage with the artistic work of Ingela Ihrman and by doing so, they will bring it into the urban development process.
