In this episode Ebba Moi interviews Hasan Daraghmeh about his current residency at the P1 Mobile Residency in Saupstad, Trondheim, the workshops he is organising there, and his work in the Fall exhibition at Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo.
We also catch up with artist and Tenthaus collective member Stan D’haene. Stan tells us about his work over the summer, his practice more generally, and the series of workshops he is conducting with kids for Tenthaus. Stan also shares with us a playlist of songs he selected for this episode.
Lastly we have a conversation between Máret Ánne Sara, AK Dolven and Cecilia Vicuña moderated by Will Bradley, on the occasion of Máret Ánne’s exhibition Pile o ’Sápmi
Pile o ’Sápmi was a socially engaged art project that was made as a protest against state forced slaughter of reindeer in Finnmark – and a call for debate in a tacit society. Pile o´ Sápmi visualizes the dramatic abuse that is taking place; a major political abuse of people, culture and rights – which threatens the Sami people, their identity, language and opportunity for a living culture.
The exhibition Pile o’Sapi Supreme was shown at Tenthaus, from 2.12 – 17.12, 2017. In the exhibition Máret Ánne Sara showed a necklace of reindeer ash porcelain, drawings and photographs. Hans Normann Dahl showed works made for the Alta Action in 1978 and in Tenthaus cinema a film program curated by Máret Ánne Sara was shown which addressed the legacy of the colonization of indigenous societies and shows the ongoing struggle for rights. The exhibition also showed a new commissioned work by Cecilia Vicuna made in collaboration with Maret Anna Sara. The work is made at Tenthaus Oslo and consists of traditional Sami jackets that have been donated and sent from around Sápmi, in solidarity with the trial and Pile o ́Sápmi.
In connection to the exhibition Tenthaus invited Máret Ánne Sara and Anne Katrin Dolven to be in conversation, moderated by Will Bradley from Kunsthall Oslo. Cecilia Vicuña is an internationally renowned Chilean artist and poet. She is known for her “quipoems”, poetic quipus. Quipus are a pre-colonial written language with knots in string that record information and events. It can be considered an indigenous language that died with the massacre of its people.
