I am part of the research project IdentityLab that is a collaborative project between the Istanbul based maumau Art Residency and Verkstad konsthall in Norrköping. IdentityLab happens in the context of the Tandem Exchange Program. We research identity issues through the lens of minority groups in the two countries. First journey visited Jokkmokk, Stockholm and Norrköping.
I participate in exhibition Luftslottet at Norrköping konstmuseum. Luftslottet (The Air Castle) runs February through September.
Begränsningens anatomi (The anatomy of confinement) was exhibited at Verkstad konsthall in Norrköping. Sculptures, installation and typographic prints makes formal considerations on the notions of ‘nation’ and the Swedish, newly popular, third person pronoun ‘hen’ that do away with the gender distinction.
Textile Location is a performance work where a red and white textile set a structure probed by a costume and by text. Text read and recited. Textile Location has been showed at Agora Collective, Berlin, at PALS 2014 –International Festival for Performance Art, at Sunday Run_up @ccap celebrations, and at Slakthuset.
Exhibition ending the residency at Künstlerhaus Bethanien. On show in the gallery August 23rd through September 9th.
Liv Strand, a visual artist immersed in how processes of understanding can be shaped. How can art carve a woodiness out to become table? Art is for me a practice for physical materials to think with along with language. Where processes as performances is contiguous to matter, forming suggestions in subjective precision. Some ongoing collaborations function as capacities for negotiation, concerning ways of doing together, and the topology of hierarchies. Forms and concepts in installations, and in workshops, to be played and perverted.
Liv Strand is based in Stockholm, and sometimes Berlin. She’s co-initiator of Salon Material, running since 2011, and of feminist sound art project Larm (2004-08). She works at EMS and is a member of Fylkingen. Video work is available through the distributor Filmform.
