Marabouparken’s Event Weekend

Friday 19 & Saturday 20 May 2017

Join us in Marabouparken’s Spring Clean!
To welcome in the Summertime we open up the doors of the Konsthall with a series of performances and events over two day. The event weekend takes place in connection to our Summer exhibition Starting from the Self that investigates the different ways society structures us to perform in different spaces, from public to private, from home to work. The exhibition is particularly concerned with how gender, race and class play into questions of private and public boundaries and the different ways people have transgressed and renegotiated these borders and the categorisation of space.

There will be food, drink, and Monster club for children. The whole family is welcome!

5.30 pm Breakdown by artist Sarah Browne

6.30 pm Johan Lundin: ”Drive On”
A video-mimed live act filled with costume transformations, clown makeup and serious wigs staging humorous body characters and facial gender expressions. Ending up quite unexpectedly on a beautiful queer robotic carousel of feelings. No spoken language.
Johan Lundin touches gender identity, queerness and social structures through textile, video and performance. They have studied textile art at Konstfack, choreography at the School of Dance and Circus and performance studies at Stockholm University.

7 pm Tove Salmgren, ”This is not a performance”
Lately when Tove Salmgren has been invited to talk somewhere, as an artist, she’s been experimenting with reading a text concerning ’problems’. A text which also places saying and doing next to each other, or inside, but not.
Tove Salmgren works with dans, choreography and performance, as initiator and collaborator in different contexts and formats. Recently, her practice has taken curatorial forms, for example in collaboration with The Blob/Anna Efraimsson, We happen things/Manon Santkin and Moa Franzén and together with Kajsa Wadhia, she leads Köttinspektionen dans, a platform for experimental dance and choreography in Uppsala. Her own art can be described as a feminist and philosophical laboratory, a desire to systematically highlight and play with the relationships we have at hand. 

7.30 pm Pia Sandström reads Helga Henschen
Pia Sandström studied at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm and the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki. She has been featured in solo and group exhibitions at several art institutions, including Moderna Museet (2013), where she showed an audio work commissioned for the Hilma af Klint exhibition, Bonniers Konsthall, Botkyrka Konsthall, Kiasma – Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, ARTES in Porto, and at the Venice Architecture Biennale (2014).

8.30 pm Eugene Sundelius von Rosen: ”Förskolan arborariet”
We follow rabdor 1 and student 2 into the kitchen which is apparently the dining room. In there – to our big surprise – Sverrir is picking up the liquid and solid foods from the center of the room and then we wake up. Sverrir is constantly looking away in another direction. Rabdor 1 looks sown. The performance is in English and Swedish.
Eugene Sundelius von Rosen (b. 1991, Stockholm) works with writing, enactments, reanactments, performances and situations on- and off-stage. Abstract notions of when and where conversations, events or situations are likely, sutiable – and when these arise or evolve is a reoccurring theme.

21 pm–22.30 pm Diana Agunbiade-Kolawole DJ
Diana Agunbiade-Kolawole is an artist who’s practice exclusively utilises lens and non-lens based photography. She has been making Photo-Performances since 2012 which includes Tate Britain,  Kunstalle Bern, Växjö Konsthall, Fylkingen, she will perform in Jelili Atiku’s performance at 57th Venice Biennale.

5 pm Hiroko Tsuchimoto: ”A Memoir from California”
For this performance Tsuchimoto questions how we as human beings identify ourselves according to gender, race, ethnicity, and nationality in the present globalized, individualistic social context. She invites the audience to reflect upon her self-representation as a Japanese immigrant in a critical way: Am I genuinely able to identify with, and represent the story in 2017 solely because of my Japanese immigrant background? Performed in English.

In her performance pieces she often provides communal experiences to audience members through physical assignments, dialogues, and collective movements.

7 pm Nathalie Wuerth, “Mmm… Marabou”
Starting from Marabous famous slogan Mmm… Marabou, the soundscape of the M(mm) is tasted and tried in a series of tableaux for voice and loop pedal.
Natalie Wuerth (1969) is an artist based in Stockholm. She uses the voice as an artistic, material and medium to approach the relationship between spatial and social constructions.  The voice functions as a way to probe physical space and the body as a bearer of social relations, affects and language. The process is often collective and site-specific.
Wuerth has previously participated in performances at Konsthall C, Stockholm (SE); Godsbanan, Aarhus (DA); Spektrum, Berlin (DE) och PAB, Bergen (NO).

7.30 pm Marcus Baldemar: “Love Shrine & Your Majesty – Part 1” (solo version)
A (collective) healing session through self-loving but also a lap dance of sorts. The performance is in English.
Marcus Baldemar is a Brussels and Stockholm based dancer and choreographer. His interests at the moment are the symbiosis between language and the poetic/political body, healing and love as a method and motivation for change.
