” I am very excited about my stay in Björkö Konstnod and look forward to interacting with the residents. I am very curious about the environment, the regional architecture and the local people. A first idea for a program during my stay: I would like to interact with the residents of Björkö.

Jag har precis sammanställt och släppt boken ”Case Closed” som är en sammanfattning av 45 års fotograferande. Men också ett avslut och en början på någonting nytt.
Ser residenset som en möjlighet att komma vidare genom att gå tillbaka till grunderna, den analoga fotografin. (bild: Allt som är i himmelen)

På onsdag den 14:e anländer Siri Landgren.
Välkommen!!!

” Siri Landgren, Göteborg
Identitet, kropp och den mänskliga rösten är centrala teman i min konstnärliga praktik. Den upplevande människan som möter världen och andra varelser, famlar efter hållpunkter och agens, är något av en besatthet för mig.

Min bakgrund är inom musik, och mitt arbete rör sig huvudsakligen inom ljud, text och performance. På senare år har det skrivna ordet blivit mer och mer centralt för mig, och jag arbetar för närvarande med två textbaserade projekt. Det ena, Underlevare, är en pågående fragmentarisk berättelse om ett Göteborg efter samhällets kollaps. För Underlevare är hösten extra viktig, eftersom det är naturens tid av förfall och förberedelse för pånyttfödelse, och jag vill därför låta miljöerna kring Björkö i september bli en inspiration för vidare arbete. Det andra verket har arbetstiteln VEM DÄR och undersöker upplevelsen av att ha ett jag. På Björkö vill jag arbeta med att prova olika fysiska (och kanske digitala) inkarnationer för VEM DÄR, gärna i dialog med de andra deltagande konstnärerna.”

MAGNITUDE LUNCH ART WHERE THE FOREST MEETS THE SEA

27/08/2022

During the last months, I work with a practice that I call ‘treeing practice’. The practice involves imagination, a sensorial approach in movement, and poetics. Treeing practice tries to create a link between humans’ life and trees' life. By embodying principles of trees' inner life (how they live, behave, and adapt to their environment), the practice is dealing with the question ‘what does it do to try to embody a tree?’ I am curious about what impossible tasks offer in relation to the way I move – I act- I perform- I live. Deep listening, the way that I related to it, is connected with other senses more than the hearing. Embodying imaginative tasks open up other senses and ways of relating to the task rather than the domain of visual and sonic, or rather than the mind commanding the body. This kinetic exploration attempts to create an understanding on nature rhythms and life (especially forest) through sensing, feeling. I am interested in collaboration and sharing and I would like to have conversations with other artists and the local community, and to explore how this practice can offer a sense of nurture to others, as it has already offered to me. During my practice the question of the community appeared to me. The forest is a solid community and it is as strong as its weakest member. I feel that the next step for my practice is to open it up for discussion, reflection and possible collaboration, to share it in a group format. The description of the residency sounds as a nurturing environment for this practice to expand. Extending beyond the importance of collectivity, another reason I want to join this program is that I would like to have the time to explore this work further and the area of Björkö seems the right combination of nature and facilities, of water and wood, for me to expand the site-sensitive exploration in that location." Roula Samiotaki Greece/Sweden

Program in collaboration with Swedish Arts Grants Committee and Region Stockholm.

"I'm inspired by radical mycology, a social philosophy that describes cultural phenomena using a framework modelled on the unique features of the biology and ecology of fungi. Quoting another work - "Entangled life" - myceliu is an embodied polyphony. I want to work with the sound that will refer to the unique field of correlations, that is a forest. I think now is the time to ground, for observation of the ancient mycorrhiza ritual, reading the signs of eternal transformation and changes around us. For restoring, regaining space in everyday life together with our dreams." Edka - Edyta - Jarząb, Poland

Program in collaboration with Swedish Arts Grants Committee and Region Stockholm.

"I am a Ukrainian artist, Alevtina Kakhidze, invited to BKN this spring when I was in Kyiv oblast surrounded by Russian tanks. So, this august, I am here, on Bjorko, reflecting my recent war experience and learn myself to dream for peaceful life in nearest future of Ukraine. My every day’s life here is a work commonly with other residents from different spheres of art and contexts which help me to dream more wide. Thank you, Alevtina Kakhidze"

Summer issue of Swedish Art Magazine "Konstnären" Run a feature on Alevtina Kakhidze release Sept 13 or 14 in Stockholm. To be announced.

Alevtina Kahidze is Ukrainian artist, performer, curator, gardener. Starting from 2018, she acts as the UN Tolerance Ambassador in Ukraine; awarded the Kazimir Malevich Artist Prize in 2008 by the Polish Institute in Ukraine.

Program in collaboration with Swedish Arts Grants Committee and Region Stockholm.

"The MAGNITUDE residency program will be an incredible opportunity as well to produce work entirely focused on nature, while facilitating new ways of entering into dialogue with other participants (artist and non-artists)and with myself. Immersed in nature, by learning (listening) a new place, I hope to develop hidden skills that only the exploration of nature can offer in order to reinvigorate unpopular words like mystery and magic. During my time at Bjork I plan to: - produce new artwork and rigorous research that continues to investigate the potentiality of contemporary art practice to meaningfully contest authoritarian and dominant narratives." Joana Maria Pereira, Portugal

Program in collaboration with Swedish Arts Grants Committee and Region Stockholm.

27/08/2022

"Mark Rautenbach’s trans-disciplinary practice asks: Can we change the world by changing ourselves? If this is the case, what interior practices are required in order to inhabit healthy, thriving, balanced, evolving outer worlds? His art practices become traces of, souvenirs from, embodiments of the transformative and alchemical art-technologies he performs.

I am super blessed to be selected for this wonderful opportunity. It comes as quite a challenge for me to live and work with other artists. My wish is to rise to this challenge by collaboratively engaging with Bjorko-Arholma and the four other selected artists. I am curious and eager to participate with the practises others bring; introducing me to new practices, stretching and sharing approaches I already work with. I wholeheartedly wish to perform collectively; responding artistically appropriately and with salience to the place, time and people." Mark Rautenbach, South Africa

15.30 Adam Haugbak om det nya verket inom ramen för HAVET SOM, OMGER OSS

16.00 öppen scen (anmäl dig via Medborgarhusets styrelse eller BKN/Björkö Konstnod)

Haugbaks verk ingår i Havet som, omger oss ett konstprojekt på 10 platser i Stockholms skärgård med Stockholms läns bygdegårds distrikt som huvudman.
Haugbaks verk för bygdegården och dess gäster närmare havet och frambringar med det en havsmedvetenhet i linje med FNs pågående decennium med fokus på havet.

Haugbak har inspirerats av samtal med Björkö bor och besök vid en rad platser på ön. Inte minst Harald Lindbergs verk som står i dialog med Haugbaks arbete.

” Harald Lindberg, född 26 januari 1901 i Rumshamn, Björkö-Arholma socken, i nuvarande Norrtälje kommun, död 4 augusti 1976. Han var en svensk målare, grafiker och tecknare.” Källa: Wiki

Haugbaks verk ingår i Havet som, omger oss ett konstprojekt på 10 platser i Stockholms skärgård med Stockholms läns bygdegårds distrikt som huvudman.
Haugbaks verk för bygdegården och dess gäster närmare havet och frambringar med det en havsmedvetenhet i linje med FNs pågående decennium med fokus på havet.

Haugbak har inspirerats av samtal med Björkö bor och besök vid en rad platser på ön. Inte minst Harald Lindbergs verk som står i dialog med Haugbaks arbete.

” Harald Lindberg, född 26 januari 1901 i Rumshamn, Björkö-Arholma socken, i nuvarande Norrtälje kommun, död 4 augusti 1976. Han var en svensk målare, grafiker och tecknare.” Källa: Wiki

sound/installation/performance/participation/voice
Sound artist, practicing deep listening as a starting point for sound activism. Using voice, radio waves, field recording and electronics, she creates an audisphere in, among other places, the Dance Theatre in Warsaw. She co-creates the Warsaw-based community Radio Kapitał and is the author of poetic radio plays and interventions, such as the phantom protest Wielogłos [Polyphony] created in collaboration with Diana Lelonek. From 2020 to 2021 she was a resident of the experimental studio WORM in Rotterdam; permanent collaborator of the interdisciplinary platform Q-O2 based in Brussels.
The artist explores sonospheres, the voice bridges between the private and the public, the inside and the outside, the self and others.
"I'm inspired by radical mycology, a social philosophy that describes cultural phenomena using a framework modelled on the unique features of the biology and ecology of fungi. Quoting another work - "Entangled life" - myceliu is an embodied polyphony. I want to work with the sound that will refer to the unique field of correlations, that is a forest. I think now is the time to ground, for observation of the ancient mycorrhiza ritual, reading the signs of eternal transformation and changes around us. For restoring, regaining space in everyday life together with our dreams."

Hello, my name is Mark Rautenbach. I am an artist from South Africa and currently live and work in Cape Town. I am using this space to showcase my current work, and as a catalogue of my work over the past few decades. I have worked as Mark Rautenbach, Mark Splendid, Mark Maria and Splendid Miriam. I work in a variety of mediums; often with material which is considered waste matter, thread and paper. I use many techniques; development of yarns, knitting, public performances and craft-like studio work.

I lectured Design for a number of years at Cape Peninsular University of Technology [CPUT], and education recurs as a theme in my work along with identities born out of narratives [yarns]. I have shown at The south African National Gallery, Everard Read, Open 24 Hrs, Spier, David Krut Projects, and Ebony/curated.
