2022. Between Sky and Sea

'Temporal Horizons'. It had to be postponed twice and now it will really really really happen! A performance festival and symposium, looking forward to august on the island Skuløy, Norway, together with colleagues and friends.
Longva AiR in collaboration with Performance Art Bergen hosted the 6th version of Between Sky & Sea, an international performance framework that is arranged every 3rd year on different Norwegian islands. Between Sky & Sea is a framework for artistic production, seminars, public events and publications. This edition, which was titled "Temporal Horizons", took place on Longva AiR and the Nordøyane Islands outside Ålesund 8th - 20th of August 2022. The title ‘Temporal Horizons’ wants to focus on the relation between time, landscape/geology, body and affect with Sunnmøre as a starting point, especially Nordøyane archipelago with its peculiar bedrock geology. The goal is to challenge our notions of time and the tension between the planet’s temporality (geological time) and a human temporality. The artists presented their projects on for the public Saturday 20th of August. ARTISTS: Frauke Materlik Sabine Popp Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen Gunnhildur Hauksdóttir Chuyia Chia Esa Kirkkopelto Ine Harrang Monroe Isenberg ORGANIZERS: Harald Dyrkorn Henrik Koppen Terese Longva Rita Marhaug Longva kunstnarresidens / Longva AiR The event is supported by: Ålesund kommune, Møre og Romsdal fylkeskommune Kulturrådet Nordisk Kulturfond, Bek – Centre of Electronic Arts.

2022. Cultural Mediation

Now I can call myself a 'certified cultural mediator'! Since last year, I've participated in a further education scheme by the Ministry of Culture in Schleswig-Holstein. In this context, I carry through art projects with children of various age groups, now also in Northern Germany. So far, I've met many great new colleagues and worked at inspiring places, such as next to the piglets at Arche Warder.

 



Catalogue and website

This spring, I focus on new works on the subject matter of performance and landscape, based at the German Westcoast. In this context, I'm currently busy putting together a new website: http://ort.land/
(still struggling a bit with the technical aspects, so please be patient....but I get help by Lars Schmidt) and a catalogue, assisted by Anja Leidel, supported by Neustart Kultur.

heading west

winter 2021
Travelling these days feels like jumping through fiery hoops and attempting somersaults, no matter how amateurishly. In the end, it is all more than worth it. What a great pleasure to meet Rona Rangsch in Newfoundland, and to stay at Pouch Cove Foundation.

newyearswoe

December - January 20-21. So I've been cut off. Brexit doesn't permit British citizens to host .eu domains anymore. Thus, my E mail and website were defunct until brilliant Mike Blackman found a solution. Meanwhile, I take a seat on the Wadden and beam my telepathic waves to friends across the seas. And I send new years wishes as analogue as can get: printed with potatoes, home-grown, for sure. Brexit my arse.  

 



happy happy etc. 21

Happy 2021. With lots of music, dance, colour and chunky potatoes.

Dezember 2019

It's happening. The 10th grade and I pose with our portable landscapes and our sponsor from the 'Sparkassenstiftung' for the photographer of the regional newspaper. And this at 9 o'clock in the morning on a grey and rainy December day!! 
Then we finally hike along the fields.  
Thank you to everyone involved: The 10th grade and their teacher Barbara Gramann, Künstlerdorf Schöppingen, and Sparkassenstiftung! And great to have Ayleen Behrens with us, she documents our walk.

Autumn 2019

Outside with the school class, strolling along the village edge. What do our surroundings look like? What is a detail? What do you appreciate, what should be changed?

 



Schöppingen

Working in Schöppingen again, amongst fields, slaughter houses and wind turbines.

 



autumn 2019. Ofoten.

Teaching model-making to 1.-4.th grade. Lots of different stories, objects, colours. And fun.

 



float. a telepathic residency with Andrea Stokes

> > Float is an imaginary space. It invites translation into something that moves between the physical and touchable to the unfixed and immaterial. It acts as a conduit. Float explores the notion of 'work space' as a space for invention and collective conversation. Float reverses the idea of an artist residency as being a space away from home. With float, we stay in our studios in Lunden and London, yet conduct telepathic meetings every day, working along similar schedules which involve sound recording, drawing, making, writing, and exchange the results at the end of each day. Thus, a new process is triggered the following day.
