About this exposition

en
This exposition explores the specific materiality that a Witches’ Broom offers for performance-based artworks, referring to ideas on plant-thinking by Michael Marder (2013) and on vibrant matter by Jane Bennett (2010). A witches’ broom, Taphrina betulina, is a fungus that afflicts certain birch trees and causes outgrowths of small twigs. With such a bunch of sticks I performed for camera and live on several occasions during the years 2006-2008 creating variations with only a few elements. Working with various materials – organic matter, digital moving images and recorded speech – and the various combinations of them, including the versions discarded during the process, provides a starting point for looking at the small transformations that produce difference and for proposing variation as one of the basic methods for artistic research.

Den här expositionen undersöker den särskilda materialitet en Markvast erbjuder för arbeten som utgår från performance, och refererar till Michael Marders analys av växttänkande (2013) samt Jane Bennetts idéer om vibrerande materia (2010). En markvast eller häxkvast, Taphrina betulina, är en svampsjukdom som ansätter vissa björkar och förorsakar tillväxtstörningar av små förgreningar. Med en sådan snårhärva uppträdde jag för kamera och live vid flera tillfällen under åren 2006-2008 och skapade variationer med några få element. Arbetet med diverse material –organisk materia, digital rörlig bild och inbandat tal – och olika kombinationer av dem, inklusive versioner som slopats under processen, erbjuder en utgångspunkt för att betrakta de små förvandlingar som gör skillnad och för att föreslå variation som en av de grundläggande metoderna för konstnärlig forskning.
