PRELUDE is ArtCan's first virtual exhibition in 2021.
It runs from 23.02 - 23-03.2021 and you can enter here:
The way in which we practice has changed somewhat although we continue to work: to research, develop, plan, nurture creative projects, experiment. We are looking forward to a regenerated 2021 – alternative, unknown, exciting.
My work "A thousand pieces taint the view" is exhibited. The oil painting is inspired by the idea that reality is subjective and always happens in the context of the individual. Like light broken into thousand piece in front of the eye: experience is a highly individualised process and radically true at the same time.
Gerichtshöfe Tag & Nacht, 19th-20th September2020
I am one of the 24 artist who have their studio at the Weddinger Gewerbehöfen. This is therefore one of the biggest studio sites in Germany. Since 1983 artist from all around the workd are working in the six listed buidingcomplexes located between Gericht- and Wiesenstraße. In 2004 a large proportion of artists organised as „Kunst in den Gerichtshöfen e.V.“.
On those two days artist are opening their studios for the public and provide insights into their practise.
My studio will be part of this. I will also present my performance "women - facts and fakes" on the 19th September around 8pm in one of the 6 courtyards.
The fair was going to take place from the 23-26 April 2020 at Skrapan located in Stockholm's trendy district of Soedermalm. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic it is now being postponed to Autum 2021. Exact dates will be confirmed.
For the ArtCan dedicated exhibiting space, we will present ‘Fabrication of Self’, a multisensory experience to which visitors will be invited to reflect on the construction of one’s own image in the digital age:
“We exist in a world where it has never been easier to fabricate an image of ourselves - the question is how much of our true selves is contained within these optimised images? How does this affect us, and our emotions and relationships? “
Visitors enter an installation and become part of it. A maze of perspectives on “The Fabrication of Self” culminates in an interactive live performance within the ArtCan stand. The visitor’s interaction activates the installation and they ultimately become a part of the experience.
Transient is a response to the current global pandemic lockdown presented by contemporary arts organisation ArtCan.
Through their international roster of artists, ArtCan brings you their very first virtual exhibition to share creativity during these times, and to provide you with a moment of temporary escape.
I will be showing my performance "women - facts & facts" and my painting "Equality?" I choose those pieces, as women have been pushed back into old role models with no child care and schools available during lockdown, so men could continue to progress their careers. As a feminist, to me this is one of the worst side effects of the lockdown and could potential throw us back decades in our fight for equality. Unless we stand up now and say: NO MORE!
At #fakenews at London's Offshoot Gallery I presented my performance: "Women - facts & fakes".
Debuting as a performance artist, my performance is based on the idea that “fake news” over time have created and are still creating a cultural norm and perception on the female role in society. During my live performance I move within and audio-visual space, a collage showing the struggle between the assumed “female role” and gender equality, to express my emotions towards the issue.
