During the late summer of 2004, Artmeeting – an international symposium – was organized in Bergkvara. Artists from six different countries took part and worked on site-specific projects. The grain silo, normally closed, was open for visitors, during the period of a few weeks, for the installation ‘Echoes’. Photographs of children, marred by the harsh years of the 1860’s were projected within each of the silo towers. Within the tall, damp towers, suggestive and mechanical music resounded against the backdrop of visitor’s footsteps. The suspended figures of light combined with meditative music accorded the weathered and corroded environment a sacred setting.
