Gabriella Carlsson

The play and disruption of an object in relation to the human body and cultural conventions are the backbones of my practice.

This way of handling objects is inspired by the way objects are used in subcultures.

Here the disruption speaks both about the outsider of the society and the belonging to another group. You can reinvent yourself and take control over the objects by interpreting them in a different way. From the perspective of the outsider, the hidden codes generate power and strengthen identities.

Outsiders of any group may be considered weak by the rest of the group (society) while rebels seem strong and are celebrated. Interesting movements to refer to are: punk rock, Dada, Situationist International and crossovers like Andy Warhol and the Velvet Underground.

Merzedes Sturm-Lie

will perform and read parts from the booklet ’13151424 1215225 9131315182011292025’ (published 2015). The booklet is inspired by writings of Slovenian poet and dadaist Srečko Kosovel and relates to processes of transformation, inverted realities, coding, investigating histories, death and dreams.
