June and July 2021, #Correspondancing – joining conversations


Joining Amaara Raheem in the early phase of her research residency with Critical Path (AUS), together with Shivanjani Lal and Preethi Athreya. A series of conversations to which we bring objects, writing, dancing, opening up into conversations about inheritance, death, materiality, body, time, oceanic histories or whatever else comes up.

27 August 2021, presentation @CARPA7 (Helsinki/online)

CARPA7 – Elastic Writing in Artistic Research

My presentation writing/over/writing takes place on Friday 27 August at 17:00-17.30 Berlin time, 18:00 – 18:30 Helsinki time!

This contribution presents > shares > shows > opens my new book Suomenlinna | Gropius:
 Two Contemplations on Body, Movement and Intermateriality, produced in the context of my time as a postdoctoral researcher at CfAR/Uniarts (2016-2019), published in the spring of 2021.

Composed of narration, poetry and theory born out of specific experiences of moving-dancing, being, eating, choreographing, performing, in and with two sites. Based in embodied research and explores the concept of intermateriality through asking: how does movement and choreography emerge in collaboration with site? More specifically: how do bodies, materials, sites, organisms, history, tuning, training, phenomena, events and the weather intermingle and speak, bringing forth what we later might call movement, dance or choreography?

My presentation introduces and overwrites this book through mixed-media experiments. I will show and read from parts of the book, alongside mixing it with other documentary items from this research period, such as video clips, images, sounds.
