Under sommaren förbereder vi för att ta emot våra första internationella residency-gäster i vårt samverkansprojekt med Iaspis och i samarbete med Statens Kulturråd.
Under våren har Galleri Syster samarbetat med det feministiska konstkollektivet ff i Berlin.
Nu i augusti kommer de till Luleå för en residencyvistelse som utmynnar i projektet
For Gallery Syster ƒƒ will be creating a stage-like installation where stories and objects found throughout Luleå will become the basis for the staged piece, in which several performative contributions and interventions will take place.
The scenario will be created in a collaborative manner involving both ƒƒ members as well as remote and local contributors.
We will offer a seductive experience that welcomes participation, interaction and shifting realities in various media.
ƒƒ will introduce stage diving as a method for being both the entertainer and the entertained, both the periphery and the center.
ƒƒ is a living and evolving network of artists. ƒƒ is a way of working and communicating through art that grows out of collaborations and discussions in close personal contact. Through friendships and alliances we make art that is an essential element of our lives.
Art is a field in which we move and meet, while creating and transforming it. We are different, having each our own language and history. Our heterogeneity is our strength. Feminism for us means equality for all: human beings of all genders and all origins.
Aubrey Heichemer is an experiential artist who uses situation to create installations that react to sound and visual input as a closed circuit that is designed to generate artifacts and materialize cultural, archiving situation, time, and space. Born in New York and living and working in Berlin
Magda Tothova is a visual artist based in Vienna and Berlin. Her work revolves around modern utopias, constructed norms, social models and their failures, how to address personal and social issues in the private and the political field. Borrowing heavily from fairy tales and science fiction, she is interested in the formation of myths or the essentialism underlying the concept of chance.
The idea of the world as a process and not as a stationary fact is the starting point of a working method in which a continuous evolution of images, forms, words, materials and patterns develop from one medium into the next. In Ulrika Segerbergs textile and ceramic objects, three-dimensional collages, paintings and sewing-machine sound performances (together with Katin Plavčak), she approaches themes that move in the borderland between the very private and the political.
J&K / Janne Schäfer and Kristine Agergaard
The artist duo J&K (Janne Schäfer and Kristine Agergaard) have been working in collaboration since 1999 and are based in Berlin and
Copenhagen. J&K’s artistic practice is fundamentally performative and engages various ways of relating performance to other media such as photography, installation, collage, sculpture, found objects, video and text. The works are often inserted into public or institutional contexts. Kaleidoscopic reference systems, constructed narratives and altered mythologies build the backbone, whereas collage can be understood as a basic principle for how the works come into existence.
Linards Kulless is a latvian interdisciplinary visual artist. For many years he worked as cultural manager in a couple of Riga art projects. Now he works in different media like video, photo and installation. The artistic playground of Linards includes theatre performances, paintings, outfit and interior concepts. Linards also works as a VJ since 2001. In his art projects there are often found ethnographic influences, esoteric knowledge and a search for identity.
Dorota Walentynowicz (PL)
visual artist, working in the field of photography, new media, installation and performance art. A characteristic trait of her work is a continuous process of dialectical feedback between technology and nature, theory and practice, logic and intuitive cognition.
