Time: 14-20 (Wednesday-Friday) + extended opening hours during events (see below)
The story begins in the text message above. Now we have an open call for your text messages that could be possible continuations. What are the “relevant things” that upset the sender? What happened before? What will happen now?
Use what you have in your cell phone as a starting point, to latch on to this specific embroidered text message and send your contribution to +46(0)706-17 82 83. Based on your suggestions, the editorial sewing circle will make a continuation of this yet to be finished story.
Life and death, sorrow and joy, all lays in our pockets and hands. Fragments of our daily life stories are gathered in cell phones. Many inboxes contain everything from hello, goodbye, to bank balances, train tickets and crucial notifications such as someone’s birth or decease. We are part of dialogues – and even monologues – through the text messages we send and receive. Together with by-passers, postgraduates Kristina Lindström and Åsa Ståhl will embroider a sequel of text messages. The text fragments will additionally be displayed on KRETS’ big window.
Wednesday, August 1 (18.00):
Thursday, August 20 (18.00):
