The universe of play is vast. It’s a place where we can explore ourselves and enter the joyful, transformative and serious. From the 1970’s to the end of the 1990’s Scouting camps were organized at Mörby gård on Ornö. Children were given an opportunity to experience affinity through play and practical exercises in the archipelago. This summer’s exhibition connects with Mörby gård’s history of being a place for fun, challenging adventures and community. You can imagine PLAY as a stage. An encouragement and praise for playfulness' ability as a power of unexpected transformation. Two quotes by the American science fiction and fantasy writer Ursula K. Le Guin have been a source of inspiration while working with the exhibition. Firstly she has in a striking way described imagination and make-believe as the core of play, as a force that can transform in unexpected ways with the words:
”My imagination makes me human and makes me a fool; it gives me all the world and exiles me from it.”
She has also pointed out that the potential of play is at its greatest when the individual dares to immerse and lose oneself in it:
”To find a new world, maybe you have to have lost one. Maybe you have to be lost. The dance of renewal, the dance that made world, was always danced here at the edge of things, on the brink, on the foggy coast.”
Hope to see you at Ornö!
