KULTIVATOR is an experimental cooperation of organic farming and visual art practice,
situated in rural village Dyestad, on the island Öland on the southeast coast of Sweden.
By installing certain functions in abandoned farm facilities, near to the active agriculture community,
Kultivator provide a meeting and working space that points out the parallels
between provision production and art practice, between concrete and abstract processes for survival.
Kultivator initiates and executes meetings between idealism and realism, hoping that fruitful cooperation’s should take form.

Two farmers (Maria Lindmark and Henric Stigeborn) and three artists (Mathieu Vrijman, Malin Lindmark Vrijman and Marlene Lindmark) founded Kultivator on the Swedish island of Öland, where they have established a meeting and working platform focussing on the issues of food production, farming, rural versus urban lifestyles, ecology and trade. The site of Kultivator consists of a guest atelier and a project room, a shop selling local organic and fair trade products, a café-library, as well as outdoor and indoor exhibition spaces. The site is host to a diverse range of cultural and agricultural programmes, such as workshops, exhibitions and screenings. Both within and beyond Öland and Sweden, Kultivator's founders work as an artist/farmer collective, performing in public spaces, art institutions and organisations.
