A project for Uppsala: "10 förslag på platser" (10 site proposals) , backstory

This project, including 10 colour photographs, was conceived for an exhibition at the Uppsala Konstmuseum, where a number of contemporary Swedish artists were invited to comment on, or develop new ideas for public sculpture in Uppsala. In these pictures JS presents possible sites for public artworks. However, due to the fact that he majority of these sites were already occupied by public sculpture - these had to be evacuated from the photographs.

Parallell to this exhibition was shown the large international groupshow "Monumental Propaganda", put together by Komar & Melamid, and including projects for what to do with Soviet era public sculpture in today's Russia.
