Currently I am a post doc fellow in Finnish Academy funded project ”How to Do Things with Performance?”at Theatre Academy, University of Arts, Helsinki.
”We ask what can be done with performance – what actualises when a performance takes place, when it is documented, and when it is written about. Through these epistemological questions, we address the ontology of performance: in what ways can we understand ’performance’ today, as a new materiality, as presence, and in the international, multilingual context where words, documents, and practices connote differently but are shared in online environments. ”
My personal interest in this project is to think about performance, institutions and personal experiences in institutional spaces. I am curious what kind of knowledge we can produce and how by doing art in the context of artistic research.
Artistic projects that include to this research:
Library Essays #1 ”Elephants are always drawn smaller than life”
Library Essays #2 (forthcoming 2019)
Riisinjyvä ja vähän pölyä (forthcoming 2020)
2017-18 I have been talking/performing about my project in several conferences: Alliances and Commonalities (Stockholm), IFTR, (Belgrade), Psi#24 (Daegu), Cultural Mobility in Performance and Performativity studies (Cracow), SAR conference (Plymouth), IFTR, Sao Paulo, Psi #23 Working group (Hamburg), GENESIS (Helsinki), Venice Biennale Research Pavilion, (Venice) SAR Conference (Helsinki) as well as Research Days I-III (Helsinki)
