During their residency at Hotel Maria Kapel (HMK), artist Raffia Li (DAI, 2021) develops a collaborative performance which rearranges the relationship between body, time and accessibility. "Remixing time through bodily poetics" culminates from an on-going dialogue with invited guest artists, collaborators, organization and visitors about the systematic and political struggles around access making, but also the creativity and poetics that can derive from it. You are welcome to join in on the 11th of August, and from the 1th till the 9th of September, 2023.
12 August - 10 September, 2024 ~ 'And then I will be quiet, so I can hear your blowin’ critically reflects on the idea of the solo (show) and breathing for the second iteration of SNAPSHOTS ~ *Solo: done by one person alone; unaccompanied ~ *Solo: a piece or passage of vocal or instrumental music for one performer.........Inspired from the knowledge transmitted by the seed of the Safou, a very important pear/plum in many African cultures, the non exhibition, brought forth by Aude Christel Mgba and Soñ Gweha, attempts to serve as a space for breathing.
"It started with the body. The body—sore and bruised from working on the docks from dawn to dusk—was washed and restored here. Over the past hundred years, the bath house has been transformed into a monument containing an art space. It is here, now, that we understand the body to be a proxy of the celestial body that is our planet. Hidden in plain sight, the slow, all-consuming grind that establishes our comfort continues steadily. In The Ground Up And The Washed Down we, the heirs of the grind, draw from its extracted residue. What can we learn from what’s left behind? What do we see when we lift the ground up? What do we feel when we sense with our entire body? How has time washed us down and how do we make space for restoration once more?" Curated by Yin Yin Wong, "The Ground Up And The Washed Down" is an exhibition hosted by A Tale of A Tub. It opened on the 8th of July, 2023 with Ultrasonic Tigress, a performance by Gayatri Kodikal (DAI, 2020), and it closes on the 27th of August with "for things not here not now", a durational performance by Raffia Li ( DAI, 2021).
