This art performance was part of Gottsunda Konstkalas, a contemporary art festival presented by Konstfrämjandet i Uppland

November 19, 2022, in Gottsunda centrum, Gottsunda area, Uppsala

SU-EN a made a crying action and walk through the whole shopping center that took about 1:15 hours

”What is one of the common human feelings? What does all human beings know in their bodies? I chose crying since at least when we are born this happens…”

”In the walk and my crying sessions, there were so many different responses. Some kids followed me almost all the way and were really engaged. 12 year old Elias and Niki even stayed on and we went for soda drinks and a chat afterwards. It was good to hear their questions and reactions.”

Appearing in the video is also another artist Heidi Edström that existed in the shopping center at the same time with her work.
