    #27 HOW TO PRACTICE? - Sara R. Yazdani

    SARA R. YAZDANI

    Considering collegial exchange, informal peer-to-peer/practice-to-practice learning, and attempts at friendship as a fundamental part of our remit, UKS introduced a new, weekly walk-in-workshop in January 2019, called HOW TO PRACTICE?

    Starting off the workweek every Monday morning at 10am during exhibition periods, rotating local and international practitioners in the cultural field teach their conspicuous version of this essential question, serving up their tricks and toolboxes, fears and desires, excel sheets, or yoga positions as UKS serves free coffee.

    For the 27th walk-in-workshop, UKS has invited art historian and critic SARA R. YAZDANI (b. 1984), whose practice intertwines academic research, art criticism, and close dialogue with the art scene. Her fields of research are modern and contemporary art with a particular focus on materiality, connections between parallel ecologies and the relationship between art, media, and technologies. Yazdani holds a PhD in art history from the University of Oslo, and her writing has been published in Artforum International, Mousse Magazine, Kunstkritikk, art & education, Objektiv, as well as in a number of academic journals and anthologies. For her walk-in-workshop at UKS, Yazdani will introduce her ways of working with artists and archives to open up a discussion on contemporary art, materiality, and agency, as well as the challenges of transforming aesthetic experiences and thoughts into words.

    Starting off the workweek every Monday morning at 10am during exhibition periods, rotating local and international practitioners in the cultural field teach their conspicuous version of this essential question, serving up their tricks and toolboxes, fears and desires, excel sheets, or yoga positions as UKS serves free coffee.

    For the 25th walk-in-workshop, on Monday, UKS has invited Spanish, Oslo-based artist DORA GARCÍA (b. 1965) for an open discussion about her research-based practice, which is strongly characterized by the involvement of the audience. In contrast to the classical artist/assistant relationship—where the young artist works according to the wishes of the more established artist—García’s practice depends on non-hierarchical collaborations. During her workshop at UKS García will initiate a group exercise highlighting this approach, involving the audience in questions relating to ethical dilemmas found within contemporary society.

    Starting off the workweek every Monday morning at 10am during exhibition periods, rotating local and international practitioners in the cultural field teach their conspicuous version of this essential question, serving up their tricks and toolboxes, fears and desires, excel sheets, or yoga positions as UKS serves free coffee.

    For the 24th HOW TO PRACTICE?, UKS has invited Bjarne Melgaard (b. 1967). Since the mid 90s, Melgaard has developed a signature style in which his personal life has always played a significant role in the creation of art. For this walk-in-workshop he will use writings for his upcoming novel as the starting point for an open discussion about the misconceptions, benefits, and drawbacks of life as a—now famed—artist.

    MARIE GURINE ASKELAND

    Considering collegial exchange, informal peer-to-peer/practice-to-practice learning, and attempts at friendship as a fundamental part of our remit, UKS introduced a new, weekly walk-in-workshop in January 2019, called HOW TO PRACTICE?

    Starting off the workweek every Monday morning at 10am during exhibition periods, rotating local and international practitioners in the cultural field teach their conspicuous version of this essential question, serving up their tricks and toolboxes, fears and desires, excel sheets, or yoga positions as UKS serves free coffee.

    For the twenty-third walk-in-workshop Norwegian, Oslo-based artist MARIE GURINE ASKELAND’s mantra “therapy as art” forms the starting point. With a background as a trained physiotherapist Askeland (b. 1985) uses personal writings and physical relaxation exercises in her performances, inviting the audience to join her in group therapy as an art experience. Activated by the group, she will investigate her role as the supreme and vulnerable, self-proclaimed group leader. As part of her professional practice Askeland has a license to touch, which leads to the themes of this event: what is the difference between being touched professionally and being moved personally?

    For the twenty-second walk-in-workshop, Oslo-based curator and writer GEIR HARALDSETH (b. 1977) will workshop us through his multi-facetted practice as a curator, director, and writer in the Norwegian art scene. Besides his professional practice, Haraldseth is an avid collector of bold artworks ranging from unknown origin to pieces by widely celebrated artists such as Metahaven and Richard Prince. The question of why it is vital to surround yourself with art both mentally and physically will be at the core of this edition of HOW TO PRACTICE?

    Starting off the workweek every Monday morning at 10am during exhibition periods, rotating local and international practitioners in the cultural field teach their conspicuous version of this essential question, serving up their tricks and toolboxes, fears and desires, excel sheets, or yoga positions as UKS serves free coffee.

    For the twenty-first walk-in-workshop, Oslo-based artist JON GOROSPE (b. 1986) will talk about the different paths he has taken to end up in the art field, including his early studies in mechanics and a background in the engineering world. He asks the question of how this has influenced his research, the different techniques he uses to display his work, and how he collaborates with other artists to generate collective creation spaces. Gorospe works mainly with photography and in the last years has focused on the idea of contemporary landscape. His relationship with arts materializes in mainly three different ways—through solo projects, collaborations, and in the field of cultural management—spheres that are later hybridized and conjugated.
