Learning from the Past / Preparing for the Future
Maria Andersson and Nancy Atakan in collaboration
performance at Nordic Art Association, NFK

The artists mimic positions from the Ling gymnastics system performed by a group of women pictured in a photograph taken at the Gymnastic Central Institute in Stockholm at the beginning of the 20th Century. Like shadows reflected on a backdrop, the artists, one by one and together, help one another perform the movements.
