I participated in a special episode of Reece Cox’s Info Unltd. along with a fantastic list of artists and poets.
I’ll be performing a new piece entitled Secret Sacred Enclave for Chromatic Wednesdays at the Apartment Project in Neukölln on Wednesday, January 27th. Closed to the public of course, but you can live stream it here.
About Chromatic Wednesdays and the Apartment Project:
Chromatic Wednesdays is a culmination of our recent collective consciousness — the pandemic has disrupted our ability, creativity, and production. How do we as artists and intellectuals develop alternative forms of thinking and articulate this unclear existential situation? How can we get out of this limbo? How can we expel it? Addressing these questions, Apartment Project developed a program titled Chromatic Wednesdays, which consists of 33 individual events, that will take place within eleven months starting from December 2, 2020. Each month will revolve around specific themes on current issues such as; immigration, pandemic, ecology, sustainability, gentrification, gender, survival, boundaries, geography, freedom of speech, and future. On three Wednesdays per month, artists, musicians, performers, scholars, scientists, and cultural practitioners will be invited to collaborate and share their research, practices, and experiences. The space will host a variety of events such as; concerts, performances, workshops, film screenings, lectures, exhibitions, readings, panel discussions, and dinner gatherings.
Aired December 17th, 2020 on Cashmere Radio, 18h
The Goldrausch project for women artists promotes the careers of outstanding, emerging women artists through a one-year postgraduate professional development course, an exhibition, and public events. To celebrate their 30th anniversary in 2020, Goldrausch have collaborated with Cashmere Radio to produce special shows with some of its 2020 participants.
In this show, I was invited to moderate a discussion and produce a radio show with the artists Mona Hermann, Rosanna Graf, and Gosia Lehmann on the themes that connect their artistic practices. We move through alternative belief systems and the search for truth in illusion, contemporary modes of shamanism, and the 5 senses of plants.
Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt is a comprehensive programme devoted to the professionalisation of women in the arts. A one-year postgraduate course conveys the specific professional skills and information that are needed to cope with the complex demands of independent artistic activity. The goal is for each participant to develop her own perspective as she goes about knowledgably and self-confidently shaping her career in the fine arts.
In August 2015, the artist Alan Fertil—a friend and collaborator—died in a tragic accident. In the years since, some of Alan’s closest friends and family—Eléna Fertil, Aude Pariset, Gabriele Beveridge, Matthieu Ortalda, Dehlia Dondain, Renaud Perriches, Marie de Gaulejac, and I among them—compiled and edited a book of Alan’s drawings, sketches, and notes. I’m immensely proud to soon be able to share this project with those who knew Alan, and those who will get to learn about him.
I’ve written the introduction for the book, which was translated to French by Matthieu Ortalda.
Forthcoming in early 2021…
