Thresholds of Intimacy

30Aug12

I was invited as an artist-in-residence at Residence Botkyrka and MDT Stockholm from August 27 to September 10, 2012. The residency takes place in the frame of Kristina Lindemann’s exhibition series THRESHOLDS OF INTIMACY. During my Botkyrka residence I will go on intimate walks with people of the neighborhood and write about these experiences on

On September 6 at 7pm I will present my solo ‘Masculinity’ in the frame of the group exhibition LONELY ALLEGIANCE at Mangkulturellt Centrum in Fittja, Botkyrka. mkc.botkyrka.se

On September 10 at 7pm I will share my research on intimacy with audience members interested in the intersection of ritual, performance and therapy. In this final presentation of the two-week residency I will share traces of the «intimate walks»,  show excerpts of the solo works «Masculinity» and «chanson triste» and try to place them in a post-feminist discourse. Moreover the audience will be invited to participate in some exercises based on shamanic rituals. Starting out from performative situations, moving on to interactive experiences and ending up in an open discussion, I will guide the public through the evening assuming the roles of performer, lecturer, facilitator and host. The aim is to experience and reflect on private and shared intimacy. www.mdtsthlm.se
