I am happy to announce I will be part of this residency and will be sharing, creating and learning together with a pretty nice bunch of other artists …. thanx to Charlene Galea who invited me to be part of it all ….
We welcome you to a joyful after work event with Patricia Vane and Judith van der Made.
Judith is in residency at Skogen from 30th of April till 7th of May and collaborating with Patricia (Skogen) on making audio visual toolbox, a posterzine with an audio link, that can playfully help you find more ways to get inspired and/or look at something. Judith is an artist using the Feldenkrais method, a type of exercise therapy. She assembled a series short audio-lessons as a guidance to recognize our patterns and where unaware of our blindspots.
In this event they are sharing their work on the toolbox: they show the exercises live and explain their process and vision. You can even try the rebooting exercises yourself and experience it.
Formerly Known As will also be screening a new AV work inspired by the Re-Boot Toolbox.
Because both women are from the Netherlands, the after work mingle will have a Dutch theme with hilarious traditional Dutch snacks and ‘een lekker deuntje’ by DJ Formerly Known As playing in live but online from The Netherlands.
In this lab Judith and Patricia are testing awareness through movement for creativity exercises. They invite you to join. The short exercises are available for anyone, they are situated around the working desk and looking at how to sit, and how to get up from sitting: effortlessly, renewed.
Judith van der Made (NL) is teacher in the movement practice Feldenkrais. The Feldenkrais Method is a type of exercise therapy devised by Israeli Moshé Feldenkrais (1904–1984) during the mid-20th century. The method is claimed to reorganize connections between the brain and body and so improve body movement and psychological state. Judith is also an artist and movement practitioner. She combines the knowledge of the method with a thorough research to explore the direct implementation of physical exercise and improvisation structures into daily life. How does it effect our behavior when working, on social engagement, decision making, on problem solving, on being creative.
This lab is part of an ongoing research in collective Ludic. A fluctuating group of people in different disciplines all over the world, started in 2014 with the fictional narrative of a sudden collapse of the earth turning inside out in a split second, leaving all its inhabitants with a trauma and a reboot of humanity. Ludic is asking by unlearning and relearning: what can it mean to be human?
Judith collaborates with Patricia Vane (Skogen), who is giving a graphic response to the exercises.
