Cryptosporidium Vernissage

The art exhibition Cryptosporidium, vernissage - Anderstorpsskolan in Skellefteå, Sweden, September 20011

Our talented pupils who attend the Arts program had this evening vernissage of an exhibition on the theme Cryptosporidium. As we mentioned before in the blog Skelleftea municipality became affected by Cryptosporidium in early April. This has meant that we have had to boil or buy water to drink. Intensive work and expensive efforts have made it possible to once again be able to drink tap water. Our students wanted to celebrate this occasion with a well thought-out exhibition.

Doris Hjelm, headmaster of the Arts program at Anderstorpsskolan, welcomed the visitors and praised the artists and their teachers.

A fantastic installation that conveys a clear message to the world.

The Conquerors of the Water. An A3-D composition depicting Cryptosporidium which is taking over the city.  ‘Our idea was to portray Cryptosporidium in a human form and show how this parasite takes over Skellefteå.’ (Aestheticians students: Stina Sundström Mikaela Lundquist, Lina Forest, Abraham Gomez, Alice Bergquist).

Paranoia. ‘Such a small parasite created such a big stir. You became paranoid to drink the water, that you were surrounded by the partially ‘imaginary’ parasite. There was disgusting and dirty water both around and inside us.’ (Aestheticians Students Jonas Ögren, Jennifer Norgren, Sara Nillson, Anna Lundström and Nicklas Pettersson).
