Tutorial#10 Every Team Member
Released 2 May 2017
The departure points of Dagny Juell’s Tutorial#10 Every Team Member include instructional videos and management training tools, online self-actualisation and ‘mindfulness’ forums and tutorials on stress management. Collaging and adapting elements from these and other sources, Dagny Juell’s video gives birth to an elegant and attractive yet unstable ‘subject’ who speaks with a double tongue, veering between the compassionately human and the digitally generated, and delivering a message that is simultaneously authoritative and incoherent, reassuring and vacuous. Piquing a range of anxieties around the instrumentalisation of many aspects of contemporary life, the remodelling of ideas of autonomy and the invasion of digital technologies into human intercourse, Tutorial#10 Every Team Member generates a complex critical poetics.
ABOUT MAREN DAGNY JUELL //
Maren Dagny Juell’s moving image and installation works redeploy motifs, concepts, languages and drawn from a complex range of sources. Combining visual polish and attraction with invocations of alienation, doubt and the loss of control, they seek to investigate the reality of the appearances, surfaces and visual spaces of technology, and the effects of those spaces on formations of human subjectivity.
Based in Oslo, Dagny Juell received her MA from Chelsea College of Art (London) and has exhibited widely in Norway, including the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art (Oslo) and Stavanger Kunstmuseum. She is currently working on a larger project called SQUAT, which will culminate in 2018 with exhibitions at Trøndelag Senter for Samtidskunst and at Trafo Kunsthall. SQUAT-UAT (user acceptance testing ) will be exhibited at Podium in Oslo in June 2017.
