SISTERS HOPE HOMEIn October 2021 we opened Sisters Hope Home at Hedehusene in the outskirts of Copenhagen. Sisters Hope Home is 5-year-durational artwork, a platform for artistic research and a lived example of a new artistic paradigm that we have termed ‘Inhabitation’ – moving beyond both spectatorship and temporary participation in the arts.
SENSUOUS SOCIETY – BEYOND ECONOMIC RATIONALITYSisters Hope have launched a strategic collaboration with The Danish Cultural Institute under the title Sensuous Society – Beyond Economic Rationality – Exploring how the sensuous and poetic unfolds in different cultural contexts. Sisters Hope will manifest and dive deep in a series of different geographical contexts internationally in close collaboration with local partners.
SENSUOUS SOCIETY – CARVING THE PATH TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE FUTUREIn her PhD Gry Worre Hallberg explores how her artistic practice stimulate an ecological awareness of connectivity in the participants, which according to the ecological theory presented in the dissertation is pivotal to sustainable transition.
Live inside an artwork! At your arrival at Sisters Hope Home, you will be greeted by a Sisters Staff who will introduce you into the ways of the Home. After the initiation the space is open and available for your explorations, and for what you and your co-inhabitants bring into the shared space.
You will cook, eat, sleep, and live together – but the path of each individual inhabitant is not predetermined. You might want to engage in deep conversation with the other inhabitants. Or you might want to join a performative ritual performed by the Sisters Staff or offer one yourself.
