Taking Hold – The Double Bridge explored and questioned the ways that solidarity, competition and antagonism find physical expression in social relationships. Performance for camera was used as a means to test the unspoken rules of public bodily contact: for instance, in greetings, dancing, or contact sports.
PRAKSIS and Fellesverkstedet are pleased to invite German sculptor Gereon Krebber to develop a residency focusing on an ambitious large scale work as a means to facilitate conversations on monumentality and ephemerality, improvisation and scale; the protocols of sculpture, art and cultural manifestations in the public realm.
Residents will have the rare opportunity to explore the potential of Guttormsgaard's Archive - the extensive and eclectic archive of the artist Guttorm Guttormsgaard. Working alongside curator Elvira Dyangani Ose, the group will investigate the potential of the archive as a starting point for narrative – potentially both historical and fictional.
