COWS CAN DREAM BY MARIA BAJT & JASON DIAKITÉ MIGRATE TO THE US
American Swedish Institute welcomes Swedish visual artist Maria Bajt who is creating a three-dimension installation and immersive play environment that explores the inner-world story of Sam, a "girl cow" in this instance, who dreams and wanders through the 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.
