On my way to Zona Imaginaria I was filming through the train window. The closer I came, the more diverse and contradictory the civilization appeared; neighborhoods devided in two, the rich and the poor on separate sides of the street. Left in me was a feeling of lack of security, of the unexpected, as well as of excitement for what I was going to take part in.

At Zona people come together from different walks of life and art practices, - to see and to listen - to observe and to join and to engage in the neighbourhood. My Urban Mosaikk is a heterogeneity of different kinds of walls. The curing walls, the human walls, the future walls. My hope for my presentation is humble; can my work interact with the neighbouring society in a way that can spark some hope and sensation of possibility? Even open up for imagination and agency?

I am inspired by how Zona Imaginaria focuses on care for its neighbouring community. Bringing social art practice into a context of real life, here and now. I see that in Zona's work it is not only the tension between the now and the past that is elaborated on; it also impacts on the future existence of fragile communities, both local and global.

I am grateful for having been given the opportunity to show Urban Mosaikk in this context.
