Abstract [en]

Roll-ups are about visions. The meeting between desires, wishes, estimates and plans in relation to the physical location. We live in a time when every place must have a vision. All activities and all of life are tinted by a capitalist worldview. Upwards, forwards and straight ahead. PowerPoint aesthetics. They characterize our language and our view of how we should live our lives and what places look like.’ The proposal included a printed booklet with sentences from the municipality’s marketing material stretching forty years back. Mattias’s intention was to develop the material into an audio guide and a physical intervention of citations in residential areas.

Locis was a two-year, three-country artist in residence programme where each of the three partners sent and received a leading artist from their country to work with, and mentor groups of artists from all three regions. Each group met together three to four times throughout the year culminating in an exhibition and seminar for all participants which was representative of, or became the culmination of their time together.
