#4 HOW TO PRACTICE?
Considering collegial exchange, informal peer-to-peer/practice-to-practice learning, and attempts at friendship as a fundamental part of our remit, UKS presents the weekly walk-in-workshop: HOW TO PRACTICE?
Starting off the workweek every Monday morning at 10am, rotating local and international artists teach their conspicuous version of this essential question—HOW TO PRACTICE?—serving up their tricks and toolboxes, angry birds, excel, or yoga as UKS serves free coffee.
For the fourth walk-in-workshop, on Monday, 18 February at 10am Norwegian filmmaker and visual artist SARA ELIASSEN invites audiences into her practice and processes of turning post-its, headaches, and heartaches into films made either to be noticed by a few experimental film loyalists or to be ignored by a million commuters. In her practice, which includes large-scale projects in public space, Eliassen often plays with narrative expectations in film, video, text, drawing, photography, and installation. Her films have been screened at international festivals, including the Venice Film Festival and Sundance Film Festival. Eliassen is currently a PhD fellow at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, and throughout 2018 her project The Feedback Loop, commissioned by Oslo’s Munch Museum, was presented in various stages in the city.
Need a way to start your week? Join the ongoing program raising questions of privilege, priorities, refusal, collaboration, honesty, pretension, working rhythms, blockages, blind spots, sleep, craft, dignity, conspiracy, accounting, body, theory, bureaucracy, ex-and-inclusion, collectivity, how to take time off and how not to, professionalization, performance, and pace.
