The invitation red: Friday November 11th at 18.30 In the Nordic guest studio Malongen, Nytorget 15 A
We invite you to attend an evening where the attention goes to the mutual concern between people and things. (Imagine) Touching a thing with some shape and a certain material making up the surface. The sensation comes along with prior knowledge, its formulations along with a curiosity, going towards the not yet known, placed in the present moment. Learning and/or confirming. It browses the catalogue of stuff put in our mouth as kids, all one knows about textures. It browses and add news. When describing what happens for someone else communication starts and it is also a material. Gestures, words, texts etc.
S i g n a l s is a programmed evening with two acts at Malongen, and one guided out-door tour. The works handle objects, text and actions providing assiduities in a socio-cultural sphere.
Isabel Carvalho (PT), Jelena Rundqvist (SE) and Liv Strand (SE) will appear with art works during the evening. This event spurs from a summer month working in parallel with a concern for links between objects and text. Isabel Carvalho (PT) visited in July, and then some meetings on text and its materiality was arranged for a larger group of colleagues.
