Practicing art - as a habit? / Att utöva konst - som en vana? (2016)

About this exposition

en
This bilingual exposition (English and Swedish) presents and problematizes the relationship between artistic practice and habit, describing two projects that deal with repetition and place. The projects 'Solsidan' and 'Summer at Söder' were undertaken during the years 2015-2016 in Stockholm. The idea of repetition and returning to the same site were crucial, as in much of my previous works. Unlike them, neither of these two projects involved performances for camera; in both the actual practice consisted of video recording the view. The shift in emphasis from an artistic practice aiming to produce an artwork, into an activity undertaken mainly as an exercise, an activity, could be seen as a strand in the general trend in contemporary art since the 1960s and accentuated in this century towards valuing the 'working' of art above the work of art as an object. This trend can also be related to research and linked to the preference for various terms like practice as research, performance as research, creative arts research or, indeed, artistic research. - This exposition combines a description of the actual practice, with an encounter with the material generated through that practice and proposes that these works can exemplify artistic research as a speculative practice.

Denna tvåspråkiga (svenska och engelska) exposition presenterar och problematiserar förhållandet mellan konstnärlig praktik och vana, och beskriver två projekt som handlar om upprepning och plats. Projekten ‘Solsidan’ och ‘Summer at Söder’ (Sommar på Söder) förverkligades under åren 2015-2016 i Stockholm. Tanken på upprepning och att återvända till samma ställe var avgörande för båda, precis som i många av mina tidigare arbeten. Till skillnad från dem innehöll ingetdera projektet uppträdande för kamera; i båda projekten bestod den egentliga praktiken, själva utövandet, av att spela in utsikten på video. Förvandlingen från en konstnärlig praktik, som avser att framställa ett konstverk, till en aktivitet som förverkligas huvudsakligen som en övning, en aktivitet, kunde ses som en tråd i den allmänna trenden inom samtidskonsten från och med 1960-talet och i synnerhet i detta århundrade att värdera konstens ”verkan”, som verksamhet, framom konstverket som ett objekt. Denna trend kan också sammankopplas med forskning och knytas till förkärleken för benämningar som praktik-forskning (practice as research), föreställningen som forskning (performance as research) kreativ konstforskning (creative arts research) och framför allt konstnärlig forskning. - Denna exposition kombinerar en beskrivning av det egentliga utövandet och mötet med det material som utövandet gett upphov till, och föreslår att dessa projekt kan exemplifiera konstnärlig forskning som spekulativ praktik.
