At the Why Monster Studies Now? symposium, artist Liv Bugge presented some of her exciting art projects. Now she invites you, the people of The Monster Network, to participate in a conversation piece on the subjects of telepathy, time, materiality and the environment.
Tuesday 19th of December, at 6 pm
Oslo (Place to be announced)
People from the Monster Network are hereby invited to take part in a group conversation with an object and historical entity, a couple of million years old. I am hosting a session, or exercise, where the task is to communicate through material and time, using telepathy as a technique learned from the school of animal communication. The session involves a group meditation, to allow images, sensations and feelings to flow in our bodies in the meeting with the object in conversation, followed by a group discussion. The exercise comes from an interest in the image production of awake and sleeping dreams, meditations and telepathic communication. In a playful way we focus on reading in a broad sense, as well as the collectivity and temporalities of the subconscious, on both a singular and collective level. The session is an exercise in nonlinear ways of relating to historical existences and concepts of time, as well as using the whole body as a image producing apparatus. This conversation is part of a larger artistic research project questioning the normative beliefs concerning our relationship to the environment, by exploring ways in which we use the concepts and narrations of nature to constitute and consolidate our own history writing as well as our governance of resources and bodies.
The conversation will be documented with an audio recording, which will be transcribed and may be used in production of artworks. Information about this development will be given to the participants. The conversation will be in English if any non-Scandinavian speaking people are present.
The session is open for a maximum of 15 people. The participants will receive the sum of 300 NOK each that will cover transporation etc.
Please email to LivBugg@khio.no before December 12th if you would like to participate, with the subject line “conversation piece December”.
