Cecilia Ciscar has taken on the project to fill tram nr. 143 from Norrköping with passengers. The tram retired in 2000 and found a resting place in Ångermanland 2 years later, far from its place of birth and far from its workplace.
In the summer of 2018 the visitors to Mannaminne will meet Cecilia Ciscar's faces, which together with the tram will become one work of art. The 'streetcar faces' observe the wide entrance of this open-air museum created by Anders and Barbro Åberg.
The simplicity of our artist's faces is apparent. The pursuit of achieving this sparse, basic expression with down-to-earth feeling is in fact a slow process in which the artist is in dialogue with the emerging work and "listens" to it and in unison often changes painting tools or direction before both parties are satisfied with the outcome.
