My road trip to the south of Sweden led me to Wanås, where I visited Wanås Castle. The castle is a private residence that is surrounded by an art foundation with a sculpture park and center for art.
This is the entrance, shop and indoor gallery space.
The focus of the sculpture park and center for art is international contemporary art with site-specific installations.

Even the castle façade featured an art installation with a swarm of 300 giant ants by Rafael Gomezbarros. This was extra fun as I’d already seen the swarming ant installation by at Saatchi Gallery in 2014, during their Pangaea: New Art from Africa and Latin America exhibition.
