Over the next month I will be taking part in a residency titled IN TIME WE TOO WILL BECOME ANCESTORS… run by PRAKSIS in Oslo. Together with Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA) and Sami Center For Contemporary Art (SDG), PRAKSIS invited artists Eliza Naranjo Morse (Tewa, Santa Clara Pueblo, New Mexico, USA) and Ivan Liotchev of International Collaborative Drawing Project (ICDP) to lead its Autumn 2016 residency.
The residency community consists of two international residents and seven local residents to work alongside Morse and Liotchev in Oslo, including: artist Clara Json Borg (SE), choreographer/dancer Edwin A. Cabascango (EC), Karoline Hjorth (NO), printmaker Ragna Misvær Grønstad (NO), photographer Tiril Guttorm (NO), artist Rina Eide Løvaasen(NO), choreographer/dancer Kristin Nango (NO), artist Isfrid Angard Siljehaug(NO), and Canada based curator Ola Wlusek (PL).
In time, we too will become ancestors… will explore intersecting cultural histories and shared philosophies between differing peoples, seeking synergies that transcend geographical distance. It will seek to bring together people of different cultures, to consider concepts of societal progress and value, and explore questions of identity, history, ancestry and sustainable futures, in relation to aesthetic practices.
