Radio Tenthaus episode 82 discusses “On SeSiSå”– Part One. “On SeSiSå is a series of talk radios broadcasted in relation to the workshop-based exhibition “SeSiSå”, currently on view at TENTHAUS until 22.Jan 2022.
Three different groups of artists will be invited to each of the three talks. With a seemingly serious adverb “on”, “On SeSiSå” reviews and discusses children’s “creativity”, including visual, aural and improvisational exercises during the workshops of SeSiSå, and dialogues on body, space, and site-specific gestures.
“On SeSiSå Part One” features musician/composer Wei Ting Zeng and visual artist Jacky Jaan-Yuan Kuo talking about the idea, collaborative process and development of “SeSiSå”. Artist Montserrat Llampallas will join and share her movement-related practices and experiences, responding to the visual and tactile exercises, colours and shapes in the workshops as a reading method.
Wei Ting Zeng
Though her training is rooted in the classical – Wei Ting Zeng’s musical interests span the globe, embracing a wide range of improvisational traditions. She is engaged in a continuous search for reproducing images of nature through music. She has described the appeal of twentieth century music as “a little girl standing in front of a mountain.”
Wei Ting studied Performance in Music at the National Taiwan Normal University. She began her career as a cellist in Taipei Symphony Orchestra and Island String Quartet, after which she travelled to Oslo, Norway to study economics. During her break from music, she started working with a number of improvisational musicians including Jo Berger Myre, Jo David Meyer Lysne, Kjetil Jerve, and more. She is currently collaborating with Ayumi Tanaka as a duo, and composing for a short film “Tistlebu,” directed by Simon Matthew. (See more at weitingzeng.com)
Jacky Jaan-Yuan Kuo
The root of his knowledge is memory, the vehicle in which he correlates between body, family, pictorial experience, object, and space. Drawing from these memories, perpetually categorised and designated narratives become identities in progress; the transformation of individual personhood in relation to collective rather than established entities.
Jacky’s artistic practice melds photographic writing, installation, narrative audio recording, and site-specific (cleaning, publishing) gestures. By employing the intimate and gentle touch of storytelling to his installations or sculptures, he confers a subtle access to a harder inquiry of the scenarios: the paradoxes of intimacy, identity insecurity, estrangement, and the latent violence of the patriarchal structure which permeates our society.

Montserrat Llampallas works with the blurry lines that separate the (body) from (space). She finds herself in a constant approach and dialog with movement related practices and has found in it a way and a language to play, unfold and merge these words. For the coming show she is working on a series of drawings that think around rose winds, dials, and directions. A propelled spinning that contains the potential on direction and paths.
