The Research Catalogue (RC) is a non-commercial, collaboration and publishing platform for artistic research provided by the Society for Artistic Research. The RC is free to use for artists and researchers. It serves also as a backbone for teaching purposes, student assessment, peer review workflows and research funding administration. It strives to be an open space for experimentation and exchange.

Untitled* [version-copy for maintenance] (2022) Erika Matsunami
Untitled* is practise-based artistic research, which is the exploration of geometry in drawing, notaion and sound composition (virtuality) and spatial installation and performance (physicality). Its spatiality will explore in the context of visual arts and architecture in terms of the cross-disciplinary between Music and visual arts, that is through an intervention between two disciplines of visual arts and music towards architecture (design) methodically.

B.O.D.Y. - Between auditory fiction and body-reality (2022) Erika Matsunami
The exposition "B.O.D.Y. – Between auditory fiction and body-reality" is a summary of my project `B.O.D.Y. 2010´, which was represented from 2009 (ground work) until 2012 and includes theory, artistic practise, procedure, realisation, representation and perception. Thereby, the theories refer to my artworks and are summed up my artistic thesis. The artworks in this exposition are related to the theses of the academic and scientific fields. The artistic research for the audio and visual works is based on the project `B.O.D.Y. 2010´. This project is an intermedia project; it uses media such as photography and drawing, photography and sound installation, and music (sound/sonority/noise) and drawing. The research field is interdisciplinary in visual arts and music within the expanded scope of the transdisciplinary approach. In the project B.O.D.Y., I used the time-based mediums of sound and performance which are the mixing layers of design, happening and performing. The act, as well as performance, is conceptual and improvisational which evokes, in contrast, the connotation of the objects with the body in real-time. In the space design for the installation and performance, the horizontal dimension of this installation is variable. Each exhibition space of the installation and performance will be re-designed by the cross-disciplinary approach in the art such as in the representation's concept and artistic approaches. This digital exposition is likewise a part of the concept and contemplation for the art book B.O.D.Y. about the conceptualisation for a multimedia art book design with intermedia artwork. (Human studies in the keywords is not the area of studies such as human science.)

Tradering, oppløsing (2022) Ingfrid Breie Nyhus
TRADITIONING, DISSOLVING: What does 'traditioning' mean, what can the 'traditioned' become? On exploring rules and possible spaces in tradition and creation. To Ingfrid Breie Nyhus, the apparently impossible combination of folk music and grand piano, is a creatively generative musical situation. The rules of the 'slått' tradition are transposed to a new space in the grand piano, and the rules of the grand piano are destabilized in the meeting with the 'slått'. This exposition unfolds questions, reflections and new questions, from a longer process with the music "Slåttepiano".

In circles leading on – folkdance, a choreographic intersection (2022) Andreas Berchtold
This research departs from a study, building on the relation between one’s own embodied cultural constitution and someone’s comprehension of the practice. Dealing with questions on what approaches that are needed to make different perceptions of dance the possibility to contribute to the development of the field. Placing a dancing body in center of the research gives rise to the position which yields the required perspectives. When dancing, the stance of representing a genre is assumed, taken and given in a concrete way, in this case – folkdance within contemporary contexts. Moving in circles through references from different discourses, and by allowing these circles to intersect in practice, the work achieves its critical point of view.

Circular Bowing, Cyclical Work (2022) Karin Emilia Hellqvist
Circular Bowing, Cyclical Work explores the collaboration between composer Henrik Strindberg and myself, violinist Karin Hellqvist, from my viewpoint as performer and co-creator. On my initiative, as part of my PhD in artistic research at the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo, a cyclical collaborative practice is being developed. Our process differs from the conventional separation of roles that I have so far experienced as a performer of contemporary Western classical music. The exposition highlights how my understanding of the emerging concept of 'the artistic palette' develops through the shared work and dialogue around Cirkulära Stråk for violin and electronics, when expanding my practice and establishing a new work mode. Through examples from the artistic process, the exposition aims at further unfolding how we as collaborators develop ways of challenging each other. A keyword for my defiance of the traditional and formal task division, is the search for connection – connection to my collaborator, the work, and the embodied knowledge of my artistic palette. The exposition comprises written reflections, transcribed dialogue and sketches as well as video and audio documentation. Documentary video conversations are held in Swedish with English subtitles.
