DESCRIPTION

Tonje Bøe Birkeland

Tonje Bøe Birkeland will discuss her ongoing project Tuva Tengel (1901-1985): Letters from Mongolia and the parallels that exist between her own experiences of the landscape and the character’s adventures. The meeting between a constructed character, a visual artist and a landscape is put on stage, and the constructed and the physical meet on the border between fiction and reality.

Mircea Nicolae

Mircea Nicolae will present the production process of his Romanian Kiosk Company project from 2010, which provides the viewer with an in-depth explanation of the social, cultural and historical context of the city of Bucharest, Romania in the last 50 years. He will illustrate the conceptual, material and technical transformations that the project went through before it was completed. The project transitioned from an urban photography research project to a series of scale models and finally to a scupltural installation accompanied by a film.
