Umeå 2

Just outside of Umeå centre, on the premises of an old mental hospital, there is a beautiful sculpture park Umedalen Skulptur and Galleri Andersson/Sandström - go there if you have the possibility! Great place to bring kids too. This is only a fraction of what could be seen - there were sculptures by Louise Bourgeois, Charlotte Gyllenhammar, Meta Isaeus Berlin, Anish Kapoor and many more, couldn't show them all...
Galleri Andersson/Sandström, a horse on a chimney by Lin Peng, and myself going into Cristina Iglesias Vegetation Room
Alina and Rosa on Nina Saunders Hardback and Joar on Kari Cavéns arch made of aluminium chairs
Antony Gormley's Still Running and Roland Persson's Untitled, painted bronze shoes
Alliansring by Anna Renström and Omphalos by Grönlund-Nisunen
Jaume Plensa; Irma's White Head and Yorkshire Soul II. He was also exhibited in the gallery.
160 men's jackets on steel wire high up in the trees; A Path by Kaarina Kaikkonen. Tim took a classy photo of me :)
One of the sweetest dog's I've ever known: Nova and Everything's gonna be alright by Mikael Richter (love it!)
