Abstract [en]

Soup night special with Alice and Amanda / We As A Thing / Tell Me Your Fantasy

ABSTRACT

We As A Thing is a project that focuses on female experiences around desire, intimacy and fantasy. The project is an experiment with ideas of the self as well as a play of infinite boundaries between bodies, materials and temporalities. Tangling through a multiplicity of possible articulations and re-articulations, fantasy acts as a potentially subversive force. From within the physical experience of the female body – from her skin and blood – the project interweaves bodies of knowledge and desire, whilst in dialogue with conceptions of the feminized body and the narratives of those who inhabit them.

The presentation of my practice will manifest in a shared performance night with fellow NPP student Alice MacKenzie, where the performance We As A Thing – made in collaboration with Ellinor Ljungkvist – will be one part, a participatory workshop-evening of conversation and collective knitting named Tell Me Your Fantasy and the booklet, We As A Thing,that will be available at the encounters.

Alongside, I convey an ongoing interest in and exploration of collective formats and sustainable ways of working with others – where participation in itself acts as a collaborative strategy.

The different materials in the presentations emanate from a series of one on one conversations that I have had with women and non binary persons during the past two years. The dialogical texts in the booklet, are responses to that multitude of voices and are attending thoughts on sexual fantasies, power structures, distress, resistance and possible futures.
