Medverkande gästkonstnärer

Logan Acton, USA, guest artist
Logan Hamilton Acton lives and works in Kansas City, Missouri. Acton earned an MA in Aesthetic Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas and an MFA in Sculpture at Cranbrook Academy of Art. His past immersion in extreme music fostered an interest in its theatricality and the aesthetics of unrest. Acton’s current body of work explores the idea of transformation. Connecting myth and contemporary music this takes the form of video, performance, drawing, and installation. His work employs the language of archetype to explore identity and place through allegories that layer the world as it is with visions of a world that could be. Acton is a Co-Director/Curator with PLUG Projects and a 2017-18 Charlotte Street Foundation Studio Resident with his two-person collective the ARGOT/NOTS. More info

 

Moshtari Hilal, Iasips-scholar
Moshtari Hilal studied Middle-Eastern-Studies and politics in Hamburg and focused on Postcolonial and Gender Theory. In her body of often semi-autobiographical artwork, she aims to generate an understanding for the complexity of marginalized identities. Her portraits explore the possibilities of beauty and storytelling within a political environment through faces. Hilals work was on display in Germany, Afghanistan, Denmark, USA and Canada.

Sandra Sterle, Residens Angered scholar
Sandra Sterle is a visual artist who works with film, installation, interventions, photography and performance. Currently she is associate professor of performance and video at the Arts Academy in Split. Sandra Sterle applies different strategies and exhibiting formats in her work; often starting with the performative act or staging in front of the camera she develops scripts for films and derive impulses for performative work from her personal experiences and the environment that surrounds her. In the process of creating work she uses the concept of archetypes, also analyzing the nature of remembering and memories, both personal and collective. More info

Sara Tirelli (Italy) is a filmmaker and artist whose work lays along the border between art and cinema. Sara Tirelli is currently working on a VR installation within the Artist in Production Residency at Kostepidemin. The Production Residency is arranged by Borås Museum of Modern Art, Kultur i Väst, Region Västra Götaland, Iaspis – the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s International Programme for Visual and Applied Artists.
Sara Tirelli  explores unconventional modes of representation and storytelling and focuses on the phenomenology of vision to research the processes that define “the act of looking” and the links between “what is perceived” and “what is real “. Her work is often a critical reflection on media’s power to influence the forms of thought and it is moved by the will to search for historical and political reasons that are hidden behind certain narratives and aesthetic choices. She lives in Venice. More info

 


Gordana Zikic, Västra Götaland regionen scholar

Gordana Zikic is a shamanic artist, studying and incorporating traditions and innovations in shamanism, both ancestral and contemporary. She was born in Serbia, currently at Ph.D. studies in visual arts, Faculty of Fine Arts, Belgrade, Serbia, where she got her MA and BA. Zikic has always been drawn to explore various cultural traditions and spirituality, exploring the ancient and symbolic traces of human experience and infusing them into a modern context. She creates pictures of existing images of myths and legends, shamanic symbols and archetypal images through a direct intuitive approach and interpretation of visual patterns. Eclectic mixes and visual hybrids of ancient and modern images, define a subjective view of the world, which expresses a personal symbolic language, values, and frame of reference in her sculptures, drawings, and installations. The world, and what is worthwhile in it, used as landmarks of moral and practical guidance for coping becomes not just a rational and conscious message, but a set of contents encoded in images that resemble mythological scenes.
