In 2022, visitors to Wanås Konst get to see more by two much appreciated artists in the collection. Since 2010, playful red balls have brightened up the beech trees in the sculpture park in Anne Thulin’s artwork Double Dribble. Now, we re-install her work from 1994, Ultra Marin, a monochromatic blue painting on a façade of a historic building, which both merges with and contrasts against its surroundings.
Yoko Ono’s Wish Trees for Wanås – with instructions, 14 apple trees, and over 10,000 wishes harvested yearly – became a central part of the collection in connection with her exhibition in 2011. This year, her second work that is part of the collection, Skyladder, is also on view. Furthermore, Ono is making a specific addition connected to the ongoing war in Ukraine, the text work Imagine Peace is exhibited in the facilities as a continuation of her life-long effort to promote peace.
