While exploring the experiential textures of psychological and physical transition, the installation also gestures towards the concept of Europe as a problematic utopia in the African imagination.

If you listen carefully you will hear birdsong in the tree a song that should not be heard here. The sounds are recorded in one country and broadcast from hidden loudspeakers in another. They merge with the local sounds and are difficult to distinguish.
The work is included in the exhibition Malmös leende (Malmös smile), a group exhibition produced by Public Art Agency Sweden and implemented in cooperation with the City of Malmö.
