Climb, Swing, Balance is an ongoing investigation on the different types of installations in the public space that could stimulate our physical, cognitive and poetic faculties along with social ease between and within all ages.

We all swing as a child, walk the balance beam using sidewalks and fallen trees and if we’re lucky enough to grow up amongst trees, we all climb them too as high as our courage will take us. With the body in motion, we begin to play our way to new languages, intuitive and immediate, whatever age —young, old, half old. We make use of our senses, laugh and imagine, sometimes on our own but often we need a fellow passenger to join in our adventures.

Carpentry Tamano (SE) together with the artist/design duo Anna Senno (SE/FR) and Michel Cayre (FR) have begun to explore and create swinging installation pieces. Some for the interior, some for the exterior, some for both. The visitor is encouraged to converse and reflect whilst in motion, with themself or with an other, quite like park benches where we meet with those we know and those we don’t.

It is an open invitation to internal and external conversation, of discovery and movement, suitable for all generations, by which we might get better at smiling and unleashing rusty thoughts in stiff bodies. Climb, Swing, Balance! Is a hopeful call upon our natural playfulness and an encouragement to take our selves a bit less seriously and meet with one another, even in the overwhelming urban landscapes.

why we swing


To ask who am I. To invent an I with no body. To feel lost. To be without doing. Who asks what is my content and what is its function. Who asks what do I know and what can I learn. If I am defined by my content, my content needs evolution, confrontation, inspiration. From where, from what, from whom. To disagree to dispute to be wrong is not to do wrong is not to stand with guilt but to hold a chance. Opportunity. Growth means depth. Where is freedom. In imaginary. What is freedom. Free from judgement in imaginary. How to reach imaginary. Release weight. Fly. Trust and play. Release an ego. Fly. Again. The body and a movement lead the mind dare the spirit. Natural states. I am capable. We are. No instructions. No rule. Organise. What is the function of freedom. Create. What. Sensation. Of what. Truth. How. Emotion.


Se demander qui suis-je. S’inventer un je sans corps. Se sentir perdu. Être sans faire. Qui demande quel est mon contenu et quelle est sa fonction. Qui demande ce que je sais et ce que je peux apprendre. Si je suis défini par mon contenu, mon contenu a besoin d’évolution, de confrontation, d’inspiration. D’où, de quoi, de qui. Être en désaccord contester se tromper n’est pas tromper. N’est pas se tenir coupable mais tenir une chance. Opportunité. La croissance signifie profondeur. Où est la liberté. Dans l’imaginaire. Qu’est-ce que la liberté. Libre de jugement dans l’imaginaire. Comment atteindre l’imaginaire. Lâcher le poids. Voler. Faire confiance et jouer. Relâcher un ego. Voler. Encore. Le corps et un mouvement mènent l’esprit osent l’esprit. Des états naturels. Je suis capable. Nous le sommes. Sans instructions. Sans règles. Organiser. Quelle est la fonction de la liberté. Créer. Quoi. Sensation. De quoi. Vérité. Comment. Émotion.


Att fråga vem är jag. Att uppfinna ett jag utan kropp. Att känna sig vilsen. Att vara utan att göra. Vem frågar vad är mitt innehåll och vad är dess funktion. Vem frågar vad jag vet och vad jag kan lära mig. Om jag definieras av mitt innehåll behöver mitt innehåll evolution, konfrontation, inspiration. Att inte hålla med att ifrågasätta att ha fel är inte att göra fel. Är inte att stå med skuld men hålla en chans. Möjligheter. Växa ger djup. Var finns frihet. I det imaginära. Vad är frihet. Fri från dom i det imaginära. Hur når man det imaginära. Släpp vikten. Flyg. Lita och lek. Släpp ett ego. Flyg. Igen. Kropp och rörelse leder sinnet vågar anden. Naturliga tillstånd. Jag är kapabel. Vi är det. Utan instruktioner. Utan regler. Organisera. Vad är frihetens funktion. Skapa. Vad. En upplevelse. Av vad. Sanning. Hur. Känsla.
