Runo Lagomarsino's exhibition 'We believe to be a land and the truth is we are barely a landscape' links historical and contemporary migration. Växjö and Småland are central places. The artist highlights portrayals of exile's first impressions and memories. Various stories meet and take turns against each other in an exhibition of sculptures, pictures and films.
The exhibition is part of the art project 'New Småland' where local knowledge is combined with international contemporary art with the aim of exploring the political, social and aesthetic landscape in Småland.
The exhibition will be opening on September 21, 2019, at the Emigrants' House.
