SILVA SAVAGE AT SISTERS ACADEMY BOARDING SCHOOL

Meet Silva, a poetic animal in excess, a savage-in-the making. In her suitcase she brings the feet and feathers of a butchered rooster. Around her wrist a bracelet hangs: spiky black plastic picked up on a North Sea beach, a polymere token transported via currents and drifts from fellow birds nesting in the Great Pacific Plastic Gyre. What will she do for you, this Silva, this medium of the wild? Silva is…

THE FIRE UNFOLD THE CONCEPT

I am quietly starting to prepare for my stay as a Visiting Artist at The Boarding School; which, however I can see now, could also be as a Visiting Teacher or a Visiting Researcher. I would like to make space for a laboratory, where the participants can explore the many ways into knowledge. So my question as a Researcher could be: what will happen, if we consider knowledge and learning as an initiating process, where…

CREATING ENTYMOLOGY /VISITING ARTIST ICM

The mix up of entomology and etymology has followed me. It all started with a member of the Cantharidae family gazing through the camera lens, followed up by a dried out cicada falling down from a tree as I cried. I felt I needed to realize something: For a long time I had thought that the humanistic science fields were the only true ones, as they derive from human experiences,…

THE UNTAMED

In my classes I want to explore subjects that I never had in school. Subject I was missing with out knowing it – before I meet my Sister. She ask me: “If you where to decide which classes would you have had in your school time?” I brought the question with me and wandered. For a long time I ask myself that question. What did I miss in my school…

THE CONNECTOR AND HER THOUGHTS

Some words about The Connector… Already as a two year old child she would draw lines on the floor, connecting the different objects in the room, with four she loved binding things together with thread. Later on, she started making connections between apparently disconnected words, triggering new associations and discovering the power of creativity as a source to understand the world in other ways. When she was old enough, she…

THE CONJURESS – INITIAL THOUGHTS

The Conjuress appears and disappears like clouds forming, shifting and vanishing in the sky. Classes will be conducted with those who are in the right place when the time is right. Classes will involve sleeping, waking and breathing with space, becoming an extension of a place, an object, a moment, a touch. Finding the innate potential of that, which is already there and bringing new meaning to it. Sleepwalking, drifting,…

THE WONDERER’S INTITAL IDEAS ON HER CLASSES

“You are not lost. Wherever you are is called here, and you must treat it as a powerful stranger.” The Wonderer is fascinated by the ways senses are activated when we all of a sudden find ourselves in an unknown environment and give into the sensation of being lost without fear. Leading a nomadic life she longs for moments in which she can with a childlike curiosity connect with her…

THE BIRTH OF THE I AM

A voice cries out loud and clear. It´s a human voice. Strong, beautiful and universally unique. You might recall the deep agony of giving birth. And the joy of that cry symbolizing that new life is present. I have experienced two new human beings being born in the past month. A baby girl. A baby boy. Both of them with clear distinct and personal voices full of life. Their only…

THE (W)HOLE’S INITIAL THOUGHTS ON HER CLASSES..

I am interested in dedicated, extended processes in a group, like long-term relationships, like Club de la Faye’s ‘Rituel du Papillon’ project, like Pina Bausch worked with her family of dancers, like Frank recording an album. Where the unique inner culture is shaped, where unwritten law is clear to everyone that everyone feels responsibility to hop into a leader’s role when needed; where everyone understands that we all have to…
