Publication with In Each Others Company
In Each Other´s Company is currently working on the second ”workshop” which will unfold through a publication. Everyone who participated during workshop #1 have been invited to contribute with something – a ripple – to the publication. The work is proceeding through on-line meetings, exercises and our own processes and methods.
Art Residency, Foundation #1 with In Each Others Company
Took part in the first gathering and residency Foundation #1, within the project In Each Others Company.
Foundation #1 was arranged by Malin Arnell, Mar Fjell and Andrea Svensson with the support from / in collaboration with The Swedish Arts Grants Committee, Saari Residency in Finland and Varvsarbetarhuset, Stockholm.
Text about the gathering:
In Each Other’s Company – A puddle for situated and dispersed embodied worlding.
We, Malin Arnell and Mar Fjell, understand In Each Other’s Company (IEOC) to be(come) something in-between a school, an artwork, an entanglements of kin, a punk band, a dance company for sustainable long-term queer engagements.
We feel a strong need for a company – as an unlearning and re-learning puddle – where we as queer identified intersectional feminist critters can intra-actively merge and become-with through new constellations. It is especially urgent in this timespace, when it has become clear that the transnationalist capitalist, anthropocentric and odd-phobic system only melt down the worlds resources, and limits our naturecultural queer potentials.
We imagine our “foundation”, the puddle, in all its muddiness to function as (a new) starting point which engage itself in the buildup of energy and the creation of new fault lines that disrupt, unsettle, and undermine even the most seemingly solid grounds.
Our experience of daily structures of embodied engagements through different task-like proposals, has made us understand our strong need for a sustainable long-term structure of being IEOC. We are developing this experience and IEOC’s becoming with the support from / in collaboration with The Swedish Arts Grants Committee, Saari Residency in Finland and Varvsarbetarhuset, Stockholm.
Foundation #1 is the first gathering within and through In Each Other’s Company. This workshop took place August 16-21, 2020 in Varvsarbetarhuset in the nature reserv at Sätravik. Altogether we were 11 persons including one chef. For further info read the Open Call.
