Joker, Svullrya’s very own supermarket is a co-op, owned entirely by the locals. It is the second oldest supermarket in Norway and one of the few remaining of its kind. Andreas is Joker’s golden poster boy. He has just returned to Svullrya after many years of studies and adventures, and amongst many things he has adopted since settling back, is a fashion sense that mainly focuses on the internal sunshine. Another newly acquired skill is recognising his customers just by glancing at their shopping baskets. Andreas’ Tuesday shift continued straight from Joker to a floating island in Stubblitjennet-lake.
In the following two days we zipped around talking to most everyone we came across, the mission is to harvest stories for an audio sculpture planned for the site development project. Thank you to everyone in and around Svullrya for their time and generosity: Anne Berit, May, Einar, Susanne, Andreas, the Kulblick family, Birger, Zappa, Kyrre, Peikko, Sinikka, Astrid, Liv, Nina, Tore, Hanne, Per Ivar, Morten, Mie and everyone at Joker and Ettertanken!
