local based project in public space. ET4U -

contemporary Art Projects Vestjylland, DK

2010 - more to see:

http://93.166.201.10/et4u/index.php?id=231

Med udgangspunkt i den lokale husmand Peder Lykkes dagbogsnotater fra 1880erne er her udformet en serie på 13 stedsspecifikke bannere til landsbyen Nees, hvor Peder Lykke boede og havde sin hverdag. Dagbogsnotaterne kombineres her med billeder/ikoner samt enkeltord, som  er trukket frem til yderligere beskrivelse og genbeskrivelse. Nees ligger placeret ca 30 km. vest for Holstebro - i det medierne har døbt for udkants-danmark.

CONVICCIONES 

v. Imagine Reality and Neighbourhood Remarks

a joint art and film documentary project


Convicciones is a interdisciplinary, cross cultural and participatory project. It focus on collaboration and joint production. A part of the project has been carried out ‘on site’ in Ecuador in collaboration with a number of engaged citizens. Convicciones pay attention to questions about identity,

representation and change

experienced in a country and in a

part of the world which doesn’t

seem included in the European

debate of global change, develop-

ment and cultural exchange.
