Recent past and near future

On Monday 22 October, Re:place was presented within the context of the Art Research Forum, arranged by KHIB and Griegakademiet in connection with the Norwegian Program for Research in The Arts. Although the project is still in its early stages and could not present a great deal of documentation, it was nevertheless a good opportunity to further examine the premises and primary aims of Re:place. Synne Bull and Jeremy Welsh held short presentations, and then were joined by Morten Eide Pedersen for a Q & A with the audience.

Later the same day, research fellows Michelle Teran and Ellen Røed both presented their projects for the forum. Michelle's performance "Folgen" further elaborates her research into the dynamic space between online video sites and actual terrestial locations. Taking the form of a diaristic "novel", the text of the performance is based on and adressed to the originators of a series of You Tube videos geotagged to sites in Berlin.

Ellen presented documentation of her ongoing work, including machines made in collaboration with Christian Blom, who has also recently become a research fellow at the Oslo music academy. The presentations were followed by a panel discussion chaired by Magnus Bartås, professor at Konstfack, Stockholm.

Coming up in the near future:

Signe Lidén will be mounting an exhibition based on the Cold Coast Archive project, in Rom 8, Vaskerelven, KHIB, during the period 12 - 25 November. There will also be a one-day discussion seminar connected to the exhibition - details to be announced.

The next Re:place lecturer will be Esther Leslie, professor of political aesthetics at Birkbeck College, London, on Monday 12 November.

Also coming up - though not a Re:place event in itself - is a day conference and events programme devoted to curating and presenting electronic literature, arranged by Scott Rettberg and Jill Walker Rettberg. Discussions take place at Hordaland Kunstsenter during the daytime, and then there will be an evening event at Galleri 3,14 that is announced as: "An Evening of Digital Narratives and Poetry" with Michelle Teran, Roderick Coover, Nick Montfort, Scott Rettberg, Talan Memmott, Kristian Pederson, Rui Torres.
