Cows Can Dream
Swedish visual artist Maria Bajt lives and works in Stockholm and Berlin and is now visiting Minneapolis where she is painting and working in ASI’s Youth and Family Gallery on the third floor of the Turnblad Mansion. Bajt is creating a three-dimensional installation and immersive play environment that explores the inner-world story of Sam, a “girl cow” in this instance, who dreams and wanders through Sweden’s Wanås Konst sculpture park, sometimes appearing in artworks.
Inspired by the innovative and imaginative children’s book “Cows Can Dream,” with text by Jason Diakité, a Swedish Grammy winning rap musician also known as Timbuktu, and with illustrations by Bajt, the book is part of the Wanås Konst children’s book series featuring images by contemporary artists and texts by influential writers who aren’t usually associated with children’s books.
The books are an experiment in words and images, with each taking place at Wanås and, like the exhibition at ASI, they encourage discovery of what is art and how we all are creative.
Buy the book at the ASI museum store and bring Sam’s adventures home.
