VÆRK DIN VERDEN I FREDERICIA & KOLDING

Kunstner Karoline H Larsen blev inviteret til at deltage i Værk Din Verden med et nyt kunstværk skabt i samarbejde med lokale borgere i Kolding og Fredericia.

Kunstværket var en undersøgelse af, hvad der sker, hvis man lader borgerne ændre på byens visuelle struktur; Hvad er muligt og hvordan kan et nyt aftryk forandre oplevelsen af et sted? I løbet af projektet blev Koldinggenserne og Fredericianerne opfordret til at sætte deres egne aftryk på byrummet med reflekterende tape. Der blev afholdt offentlige tape-aktioner og delt tape-kits ud i lokale butikker. 80 elever fra Fredericia Gymnasium skabte stedsspecifikke tape-værker, som de selv satte op i byen på steder, de havde udpeget forud.

Den Utopiske By

Hvordan ser Midtfyn ud om 50 år? I kunstprojektet Den Utopiske By inviterede vi Midtfyns borgere til at forestille sig deres egn i fremtiden og diskutere, hvordan den ideelle by ser ud og fungerer.

I løbet af efteråret 2020 vil kunstnerduoen Jens & Morten realisere borgernes fremtidsvisioner i et nyt interaktivt digitalt rum.

Via workshops med 3D scan, game jams, modelbyg, lydoptagelser, tegning og digitale samplinger blev der skabt et nyt Midtfyns univers, der gjorde borgernes fremtidsdrømme til virkelighed.

Projektets mundede ud i en serie videoer og en Midtfynsk spilleplatform, hvor alle havde mulighed for at gå på opdagelse i egnens fremtid og bygge videre på fortællingen.

Living as Clay

Living as Clay explored how the local material clay mentally connects people and places in Jatiwangi. For the exhibition three artists produced new process based art works for three different sites: A school, a health centre and a market. The participating artists responded to the social role of these sites through the lens of clay, resulting in different art works that mutually celebrated clay as a way of living in Jatiwangi:

Connecting Clay

For the exhibition Living as Clay Emil Krog Rasmussen invited kids from Al Mizan Islamic Boarding School to make a huge multi-colored chain out of clay with him. Through a series of workshops each student made their own individual clay chain.  Each student’s chain was then linked together with the classmates’ chains. Finally all the classes’ chains were tied together into a long chain, that they collectively installed in the school yard; Planting the chain in the earth and letting it grow organically up and around the trees.

The final sculpture symbolises the kids’ mental connection to clay, to the school and to each other. Also transforming clay into a metaphor for the educational system pointing towards the importance of emotional connections and collective caring as well as the fragile structure of a community.

Fruit Tile Trading Station

Fruit Tile Trading Station by Jesper Aabille was one of three new art works made for the exhibition Living as Clay in Indonesia.

For Fruit Tile Trading Station, artist Jesper Aabille, had a booth at Ciborelang Market in Jatiwangi. From there he invited shoppers and sellers to trade real fruit in exchange for fruit tiles; sliced fruit combinations hand painted on roof tiles. If one costumer gave one watermelon and a banana, Jesper would paint one watermelon and a banana on a roof tile and give it to the costumer in exchange.

The project mimics the social and economic system at the market were people hang out and meet each other while buying food to bring back home.

The roof tiles original function as money based trade object is turned into a conversation about the value of the market as a social space often used for unformal hang out, gossiping and sharing stories. Inviting the costumers to freely define the value of the roof tiles in fruit, Jesper asked how is value created? And points towards Jatiwangi as a place where social life and chit chats might rank higher than money and profit.

The project ended with an open ceremony in Jesper’s market booth where all the traders came and picked up their fruit tile order and ate fruit salad together.

Super Food

For the exhibition Living as Clay artist Christian Elovara Dinesen transformed the kids’ nutrition consulting room at the hospital into a visual and humorous art installation called Super Food. The art work taped into the urgent issue of malnutrition among kids, an issue that the hospital deals with through counseling families in food’s nutritional values.

In Super Food Christian turned this difficult and heavy health issue into a playful and aesthetic conversation and campaign focusing on food and health as more than just a matter of nutrition, but also a matter of imagination, play and togetherness.

The installation consists of several sculptures imitating the local kids’ collective selection of food they would consider as super food. The kid’s super food selection is shown as oversized, intensely multicolored clay food piles, decorated with glitchy stickers and blinking led light.

In Super Food Christian uses clay to mirror the Jatiwangi kids’ relation to health and food and taps into Jatiwangi’s characteristic sense of humor and collectivity as a step stone to talk about healthy ways of living.

(After)care

Another Public was invited by the New York-based art organization No Longer Empty to participate in a 4 month collaborative curatorial experiment and conversation taking place in Flatbush in Brooklyn.

Based on the overall concept of community wellness the invited curators worked towards a new exhibition to take place in the context of the local hospital Kings County Hospital. The curators conducted a series of studio visits, did site specific research in Flatbush, discussed and speculated in curatorial and collaborative strategies, methods and challenges within the field of contemporary art, site-specificity and community involvement.

The project culminated in the collectively curated, site specific exhibition (After)care at Kings County Hospital, expanding hospital services into a concern about everyday life in the Flatbush community.

Værk Din Verden

Værk Din Verden er et projekt og en metode til at engagere mennesker i nye samtaler om byens rum gennem kunst. I projektet arbejder vi med en åben, samskabende og dialog-baseret tilgang fra start til slut, med udgangspunkt i den lokale kontekst og i tæt samarbejde med lokale partnere. Intentionen med projektet er at introducere kunst som et værktøj til samtale og fællesskab mellem forskellige mennesker og som indgang til nye perspektiver på byen og dens muligheder. De kunstværker der indgår i Værk Din Verden er midlertidige og folder sig ud i mødet med byens brugere.

I 2021 blev der skabt værker i Ærøskøbing, Vejle, Kolding og Fredericia. Se film om værkerne på projektets YouTube kanal.

Guesting other territories

Room Service 3

Room Service – guesting other territories is a series of conversations about the ethical dilemmas and cultural conflicts associated with creating art projects in public spaces. What is the best way to act as an artist or curator in other people’s territories? How do you enter cultural contexts that have completely different rules, social codes and notions of art that may be different from those by which you are shaped?

On Thursday 30 September, Room Service was guesting Art Hub with a mini-seminar focusing on socially engaged art in the light of the current debate on representation, identity and colonial power dynamics.

The seminar addressed issues such as hospitality, equality and the equalisation of balances of power in an attempt to identify dilemmas and come up with new ways of continuing to create art for, and with people other than those who are similar to us.

To assist in this attempt, we had invited a panel consisting of the curator Charlotte Bagger Brandt (DK) and the artists Kenneth Balfelt (DK), Vincent Rumahloine (ID) and Dominique Lämmli (CH).

The seminar was moderated by the artist/researcher Lasse Mouritzen and curator Amalie Frederiksen from the Another Public.

Artist Jesper Aabille created a relaxed, informal atmosphere with his performative hospitality happening, Five Finger Punch, featuring a punch menu served during the event, accompanied by cultural histories of the origins of each type of punch.

Kunst, byrum & deltagelse

I forlængelse af Værk Din Verden 2021 arrangerede vi en rullende konference om kunst, byrum og deltagelse. Sammen med 30 unge byrums-entusiaster og oplægsholdere diskuterede vi, hvordan vi kan skabe bedre byer med kunst, kultur og arkitektur. Undervejs zoomede vi ind på processer, udfordringer og dilemmaer i arbejdet kreativ byudvikling.

Intentionen var at rammesætte et socialt og uformelt format, der både gav plads til vidensdeling, faglig inspiration og netværk.

De deltagende oplægsholdere var:

Christina Juhlin

Især ser hun på, hvordan forskellige engagementsformer er båret af og kommer til udtryk gennem rum. Christina forsker også i hvordan kultur og kreativitet er blevet en form for fælles agenda – altså ‘alle’ vil på en eller anden måde kunsten og kulturen – som i nogle tilfælde kan resultere i en form for afpolitisering af den offentlige debat om byen og retten til byens rum.

Aysha Amin
