As a part of the evolving collaboration between Baltic Art Center (BAC) and the Multidisciplinary Graduate School for Sustainable Development at Uppsala University, you are invited to a presentation and workshop about giving physical shape to complex ecological relationships, by the German artist Anne Duk Hee Jordan.

Anne Duk Hee Jordan is planning an organically growing art-installation next summer in the nature reserve Södra Hällarna in Visby, in collaboration with BAC and the Public Art Agency Sweden. The work titled “Into the Wild”, can be described as an edible landscape, a buffé designed as a menu for insects and birds, where the decomposition of organic matter will also be presented as a film.
