Sovereign land, given back its inherent rights to itself, through an agreement for change of legal identity. (2019-ongoing)

A rocky patch of land becoming a legal person through a created agreement document. The document is signed with land, previously owned by me. Elsa-land has been an important teacher and collaborator of mine since 2013. This place has shaped my work and research but has also been thoroughly shaped by the research. It has been a place for emancipating my work, by destituting its dependencies on fossil fuels and constituting its ecological dependencies. This place has also served as an inspiration for the creation of the storyworld New Reactive Earth. Elsa-land is an attempt to share, the "lived” and the “practiced” forms of my research. Forms that are indebted to “storied landscapes” and “land as pedagogy" (Betasamosake Simpson, 2014). Contact to discuss or propose workshops, collaborations, residecies or visits that explore how this place shapes knowledge and how it transforms through knowledge.

The legal document have been developed with generous feedback from Pia Björkstrand, Carmen Blanco Valer and the Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature. The document is free to use for anyone who wishes to make such agreements with land.
