Out of the Sky, into the Earth — was a public art project in three acts, that took place in Visby and its surroundings. It presented a living sculpture, an AR experience and an exhibition, triggering thoughts about life, care and co-existence on a damaged planet. Making use of pedagogy, playfulness and imagination, the artists addressed our broken relationship to the earth and to all the non-human-people that we share it with. Focusing on the visible, invisible, the real and imaginary life forms populating our world, the project presented two newly commissioned art- works: The Swamp Observatory by Urbonas Studio, and Brakfesten/La Grande Bouffe, by Anne Duk Hee Jordan and Pauline Doutreluingne.

School classes were invited to the What We Don’t See workshop programme, led by artist and educator Jessica Lundeberg, to engage with the artworks and create art and animations themselves.

Projects and sketches from the New Perspectives Visborg urban development project by artists Juri Markkula and Ingela Ihrman will also be on display alongside the exhibition.
