NEIGHBOURHOOD REMARKS –


Research - action, video, sound and text productions:

local ‘commitment’,  ‘state of belonging’ and visions.


Projektet NEIGHBOURHOOD REMARKS - tager udgangspunkt I den aktuelle geografiske, lokale, social og politiske kontekst og består af video og tekstproduktioner omhandlende ‘lokal’ engagement, tilhørsforhold , opråb og udsyn.


Som mange af mine projekter er dette interdisciplinært og samarbejdsbaseret. Generelt søger jeg at skabe værker og platforme, som åbner for et mere mangfoldigt udtryk og give mulighed for at ytre sig på egne og andre præmisser end det de gængse ‘offentligheder’, medier og begrænsede offentlige åbne rum kan tilbyde. Hvem har definitionsretten og muligheden? Hvem tager sig plads og hvem får plads? Og hvordan?
