This is the third Hidden Art Project , the last ones were taking place in the nature along Göta Canal in the County of Östergötland in Sweden during summer 2011 and summer 2014. These exhibitions were a tribute to the old trees along the canal, the longest tree alley in the world. They are menaced by environmental pollution, some of the trees are dying , and have to be replaced by new trees. Organized by the artist group Meteor and curated by Tamara de Laval.

make objects and spaces that teeter between sculpture and painting,
life and art, the functional and non-functional. Through the filtering
of forms, imagery, and practices I have absorbed throughout my
peripatetic life I create artifact-like objects that hold personal
meaning. I am excited when I can create a work that is neither here nor
there, something familiar and simultaneously unfamiliar. This
in-betweenness or displacement in my work is a reflection of my own deep
feelings of placelessness in my search for belonging.

|Inder Salim, Out of Focus is Science. This is Ghost. |
Inder Salim is an artist, poet, performance artist from Kashmir, based in Delhi. With rigour and commitment, Inder has performed for the last 25
years. In 2010, he organised Art Karawan, an international event that
travelled through nine cities in the north of India , with 30 participants from
India and abroad. Inder came up with the idea of working and developing
new processes with artists and non-artists at this event..According
to him, performance art is a potent, intuitive and yet highly evolved
strategy that can be used to comprehend the chaotic, the unknown. It is
contagious and subverts deeply held sediments of thought. How do we make
sense of the act that makes a performance? What is the specificity of
the relay of these acts? How do acts grow within the performer and
around the performance?

These are some of the objects that have materialized from a performance (with Gerald Maa) at Greene Exhibitions on 5 June at Greene Exhibitions in Los Angeles. The cloth was originally part of a costume I made for the performance. It was altered during the performance so now I am going to use it for another piece.. see link for video from the performance at http://vimeo.com/99493064

All injustices are interconnected: looking away from one weakens the arguments made against another.
