A performance of mixing the soil from three countries – Scotland, Finland and Croatia and planting three national plants, was performed in the Gallery Balen in Croatian town Slavonski Brod. Three secondary schools (Shawlands Academy from Glasgow, Klaukkalan Ylaaste from Helsinky and Secondary school Matija Antun Reljkovic from Slavonski Brod) during collaboration have made online e-zine for the Europe@school competition. Project leader was MA Vesna Srnic from Croatia, and mentors Jacqui Crooks and Kimmo Puikkonen. The performance was opened by Croatian Minister for Ecology Bozo Kovacevic http://planet-europe.sbnet.hr

“As the theme of website was “Art and Ecology for Planet Europe” we chose to symbolise the bonding of our three nations by mixing Croatian, Finish and Scotish soil and planting the young plants of oak tree, birch and heather!

Tiia, Kevin and Josipa took everyone’s soil, and put it in a bigger box. Minister Bozo Kovacevic joined us and took part in the mixing. We mixed the soil and put it again in little boxes. In each box we planted plants from three countries, which symbolized the bonding of these three countries! We were totaly excited! Almost without breath and laughing all the time. There were little mistakes, but no one noticed, and the atmosphere was perfect!

Our performance was even televised and we appeared on National Croatian TV news, and on a teenage magazine programme about the environment, in Croatia.

It was a wonderful occasion, and one that will remain forever in our memories.”

Josipa from Secondary school Matija Antun Reljkovic

Along with abstract sequences of visual liturgical inscriptions, the auditive recordings of prayers are asinchronically in line, and in a joint culmination, cacophony finishes in white.
