Kultivator

Kommun: Borgholm

Kultivator is an experimental cooperation of organic farming and visual art practice,
situated in rural village Dyestad, on the island Öland on the southeast coast of Sweden.
By installing certain functions in abandoned farm facilities, near to the active agriculture community,
Kultivator provide a meeting and working space that points out the parallels between provision production
and art practice, between concrete and abstract processes for survival.
Kultivator initiates and executes meetings between idealism and realism,
hoping that fruitful cooperation’s should take form

Kultivator was founded in 2005 by artists Mathieu Vrijman, Malin Lindmark Vrijman and Marlene Lindmark and farmers Henric Stigeborn and Maria Lindmark, and is now an open group, with members varying from project to project. Three fixed positions are:

Artistic coordinators: Mathieu Vrijman and Malin Lindmark Vrijman,
Farm manager; Henric Stigeborn.
If you are interested in a residency period, a lecture, collaboration or just visit on our farm, please contact us!
