    Conversation with Olga Holzschuh and Nina Paszkowski

    Conversation with Olga Holzschuh and Nina Paszkowski

    For this episode, I met with artists Olga Holzschuh and Nina Paszkowski to talk about a recent group exhibition they participated in, "MORA ZMORA Femme mythological figures in Slavic folklore" curated by Paulina Ołowska at Artist House Kadenówka in Poland. We talked about their exhibition process, the experience of a one-day gathering during a lockdown, why 'Marzanna' a Slavic goddess associated with seasonal agrarian rites based on the idea of death and rebirth of nature, was the leading figure of their exhibition, their take on hauntology in regards to their way of art-making. Enjoy! Olga Holzschuh is an artist and lecturer at the Institute for Art and Art Theory / University in Cologne. Her artistic practice is characterized by an intensive examination of the aesthetic, social and psychological effects of technological innovations and the resulting image production on the social and individual body. Through sensitive observation, she develops settings and atmospheres in which bodies and technologies interact in order to question social hierarchies from a feminist and socio-political perspective. You can see her works here: www.olgaholzschuh.com Nina Paszkowski (*1991 Muri, Switzerland) lives and works in Cologne. She studied painting at Camberwell College of Arts in London and Universidad Complutense de Madrid. She had her first solo show at Galeria MaisterraValbuena in Madrid (2014) and participated in group shows in Valencia, London, and Leipzig. She received the Premio Joven (Prize for Young Art) with an accompanying exhibition at the Museo del Traje Madrid (2015). In 2016 she completed an MA in Art, Literature and Society at Maastricht University with a research focus on Liminality as a process of artmaking and defining. Alongside her practice, she works as an art educator for the Museum Ludwig and the Museum of Applied Arts in Cologne as well as the Cologne Institute for Cultural Work. In 2017 she founded the School of Political Hope with friends, a grassroots initiative that uses artistic methodologies (e.g. storytelling events, organizing workshops, art activism campaigns) to activate socio-political processes. Currently, her work is on view in a solo show at Paulina Ołowska’s artist house Dom Twórczy Kadenówka in Rabka-Zdrój (Poland) following a three-month residency in Krakow in 2020.

    Conversation with Erdem Taşdelen

    Conversation with Erdem Taşdelen

    Erdem Taşdelen is a Turkish-Canadian artist who currently lives and works in Toronto. His practice is rooted in conceptualism and involves a range of media, including installation, video, sculpture, sound and artist books. His diverse projects bring structures of power into question within the context of culturally learned behaviours, where he often draws from unique historical narratives to address the complexities of current sociopolitical issues.


    Last time we met with Erdem right before I moved to London, he was visiting Istanbul. We met in a local wine bar in Taksim and had such a laugh over many memories, and we thought we were going to meet in London since he was invited to a residency at Delfina Foundation, but then well, many things changed. Today this is the first time we had a chat after a year, and we talked about how this last year affected our practices, also his recent exhibition and ongoing works and many other things. Please don't forget to check out the episode notes below for the links mentioned during our conversation.

    Conversation with Burong (曾不容)

    Conversation with Burong (曾不容)

    Today's -filled with irresistible waves of laughter- conversation is with artist Burong (曾不容) on her recent online live performance Non-Taster. Burong is a Live Art practitioner-researcher whose work deals with the politics of intimacy, gut feelings and posthuman ethics. She has exhibited and performed in the UK and internationally. She has published books, articles and recently finished a three-year interview project with performance artists and curators based in Europe. 

    Non-Taster is a performance piece that attempts to explore the elusive connections between the change of taste and the migrant experience, questioning how constantly moving to new places affects the sense of taste.

    #WIP: Work In Progress/Working Process is curated by Tuna Erdem & Seda Ergul with guest curators Mihaela Brebenel, Giulia Casalini, Sarah Hayden and Mine Kaplangi. The performance Non-taster (work in progress) is part of the exhibition curated by Giulia Casalini. #WIP is produced by Queer Art Projects with funding from Arts Council England.
