vague terrain frölunda

"vague terrain - vague tissue", artistic research, geographically situated in the suburb of Västra Frölunda, Gothenburg, Sweden

This is a site-specific collective artistic praxis and we are investigating into vague spaces through the interventions of temporary, process-based, textile installations in non-traditional spaces. The vague spaces are based on "terrain vague", a concept coined by the architect Ignasi de Solà-Morale (1995). Vagueness is here explored from the point of view of the citizen, the habitant and the wanderer inspired by Michel de Certeau (1984). Therefore the vague terrains explored are small in-between vacant areas in (sub)urban spaces, scheduled to be built upon in the future.
Vague Tissue is the development of site-specific tissues that grow, transform, pulsate, molds, camouflages and play with visions through transparency and create complex spaces that changes over time. The materials used are experiments with the spinning and preparation of textile fibres and yarn. The first year 2012/2013 will be devoted to basic research focusing on vague space, designing the probing activities, material experiments and development.
On this blog you can follow experiments, encounters and interventions in vague spaces of Västra Frölunda.

The environment around the vague space is becoming a building site where new houses are popping up very quickly. We are observing and documenting another building which been around for quite a while. This wind shed are an informal and self-organized meeting place for people drinking beer outdoors in the area.
