City Swings, ça balance à Stockholm

Playful and lightweight, Urban Art intervention "City Swings" was conducted in Stockholm by Swedish Akay & Peter. Sixty-five wild swings installed in the city.

From a few meters of rope and recycled materials, wood, tires and old crates, the creative duo has suspended sixty-five improvised swings in the Swedish capital.

In the guerrilla mode, wild and spontaneous artistic intervention on the borders of urban design, "City Swings" invites each passerby to play.

Freeing permissions and regulations, "City Swings" could only be ephemeral. A light, free approach, transforming the city, its use and perception, for a few hours at least.

For more information on the work of Akay & Peter, visit their website or discover their work Urban Recreation.

In the same style, also discover the work of Bruno Taylor, recently noticed by Muuuz. With a few accomplices, this young designer has indeed diverted a London bus shelter by grafting a swing. An installation that invites us to think too about a playful and different practice of the public space. To read our article on the subject and discover a video of the installation, it is here.
