“Re-enacting the Transnational Adoptee” enters Sweden

I keep saying that it is the last time, I perform this piece – but I keep getting requests. This must either mean that it is the best piece, I have created so far or that the need for communicating this topic is urgent. A […]

The Return

The Return

Korean-danish filmmaker Malene Choi credited me with a mentioning in the credit list of her new film The Return – about 2 korean-danes searching for original family in Korea. I was honored as my contribution has been minimal, but still it is really nice when people can use your knowledge for such amazing work as this film. Go see it.

Body landscapes

Body landscapes

My part of the Body Landscapes Festival is over – but you are lucky – you still have 2 weeks left to be surrounded by great inspiration.

Til workshoppen med kunstnerne Yong Sun Gullach fra Korea og Rahman Hak-Hagir fra Østrig, bad de fx deltagerne om at erobre eller afgive hinandens kropsdele. Hvad sker der, hvis man fx indtager en andens øre eller afgiver en ankel som et territorium eller et landskab? Gruppen, der bestod af både etniske danske og migrant-performancekunstnere, stod først lidt forsigtigt sammen i en klynge, de så hinanden markant ind i øjnene, men så begyndte de for alvor at erobre hinandens kroppe og rodede snart rundt i en bunke på gulvet. De satte hænder, albuer, knæ på hinanden, de rullede rundt på hinanden og snart op langs væggene, tog skoene af og brugte også dem til at indtage hinandens kroppe.
Mette Garfield, I Scene, 2017

It was truely a wonderful week – a lot of work, a lot of fun and a lot of talking and sharing with like-minded spirits.
If you haven’t done it yet, drop by my artist friend Rahman Hak-Hagirs website and see all his amazing work.

Here is jus a bit of what we did – photos by Rahman Hak-Hagir

Gotta serve sombody

Gotta serve sombody

Hypersensitive Productions er i Århus og deltager i den kollaborative proces “Gotta serve sombody” bestående af seje kvinder som Åse Eg, Lise Haurum, Anne Dyhr, Rikke Hansen, Tanja Nellemann, Laila Svensgaard og undertegnede.

Det er intenst og meget meget berigende at kunne bruge en uge på at gå ind i tekstflows og gode samtaler om materialer, form og praksis.

Det hele skulle gerne ende op med en udstilling på Galleri KH7 i Århus den 22 juni til den 7 juli.
