Research As Ritual - Exhibition, Copenhagen
Antillanité is an interdisciplinary collaboration between Lauda Vargas, Dominique Petit-Frère, and Alice Grandoit-Šutka. It is a diasporic practice in cartography and memory formation, where we explore the philosophical work of Antilles geography that is in process, liberatory, and life affirming through somatic practices of materiality and re-spatialization. Their process AYITI is the location through which we feel into Glissant’s Caribbeanness/Antillanité — a method that is grounded concretely in the affirmation of a place, to link cultures across language borders transforming shared experience to conscious expression.
Property Rights, Citizenship and Development Issues in Indonesia
The research aims to analyse and discuss different mechanisms affecting the citizenship for rural peasants of Indonesia and takes a critical perspective on the development agenda, and how it is used to push people from their land, in the pursuit of economic growth.
Work by Ana Lumack, Sarah Strunge Albertsen, Veronika Ten and Yannik Boserup. At Roskilde University, 2019.
Zouk as Contact Zone
Interested in how dance channels cultural encounters, this project examines what the social partner dance zouk means to its participants in Denmark and Brazil and why they practice it. By applying theory by Marie Louise Pratt (1991) and Homi Bhabha (2009c in Jasen & Pramod, 2010), it asks how zouk is a contact zone and what defines the hybridity of the dance. This serves as the overall framework of the analysis and the premise of the approach to zouk. Moreover, theory on the production of stereotypes by Douglas Martin et al. (2014) is also included, as stereotypes are an underlying and reoccurring issue throughout the project.
FRAME x Montana Furniture
How does one create such a space that embraces both the existing and the new needs?
A space where you can relax, work, socialize and negotiate. Montana invites designers to create a concept that embraces the new kind of lobby, which both serves as an internal office landscape and welcomes outsiders by meeting the needs of both parties.
This hybrid lobby should include facilities that support
the idea of a social and productive hub for the many
TO.org x Parley for the Oceans
Development of an interactive, multi purpose event space bringing people closer together. A space that will encourage conversation and lateral thinking, creating an intimate forum for social and environmental discussion and debate. The refined Dome structure to reside in the gardens of The Alpina Gstaad Hotel, in Switzerland.
Reflecting the exterior, internally we use this Dome to showcase some of the best environmentally focused design. Championing a global network of product and furniture designers.
Innovative, demountable and 100% recyclable the Dome will stand as an example of future facing sustainable design all whilst providing an elegant backdrop for cultural programming, talks and events.
As part of triennial exhibition event held every three years in the south of Sweden we were part of a conceptual wetland construction that involved time, and the construction of wetland zones is an on going project.
The process of construction and settlement will thereby become a visual element during the time of the Triennal, and from which people will be able to experience the time it takes for the plants to grow and animals and insects to move into their new habitat. As such the wetland project has no script. There are antagonisms,associations, hospitality and hostility, corruption, separation and degeneration or collapse with no encounters… invisible and continuous transformations, movements and processes but no specific choreography. The wetland project is a process, a natural set for a habitat, the edible frog protection and connection space.
