Islands workshop på Dokk1: Poesi skov

Studio Hvitt, repræsenteret ved Guja Dögg Haugsdóttir og Ásta Fanney Sigurdaróttir arbejdede med krydsfeltet mellem ord og rum, poesi og tredimensionel struktur/arkitektur, fysiske gestalter af mentale forestillinger og glæden ved at bygge med ord.

I Island har man en stærk tradition for at lege med ord og lave poesi. De fleste kan lide at fortabe sig i en god fortælling i en bog, ligesom man i Danmark kan lide at gå en tur i skoven. Men der er ingen skov i Island. Ordene er for islændinge en slags skov at gå ind i og fordybe sig i, fare vild i og finde hjem fra igen.

I løbet af de to dage voksede den islandske installationen til en poesiskov, som inspirerede til nye fortællinger og eventyr.
