November 19 – 21, 2019, 10 am – 1 pm
Many thanks to the artist Ulrika Segerberg for her seminar Plotting, Eating, Searching and discussing the works of our participants within the Studio Program at BAI | Berlin Artist Residency, Art School & Arts Incubator.
“Ulrika Segerberg (*1976 in Sweden) studied art in Amsterdam and is living and working in Berlin for many years. Her work is a continuous evolution of images, forms, words, materials and colors that develops from one medium into the next. She nurtures and cares for the improvised, the chance, the mistake, the collapse rather than the perfect plan. Various collaborations with artist colleagues and friends lately forms an important part of her working process – together with Katrin Plavčak she is the duo M.O.G. (Mothers of God). With contact-microphones and a looper they improvise on sewing machines. She also writes lyrics and sings in MATKA, an electronic music and vocal project with the producer and musician Martin Kleinmichel.
MATKA made the music for her latest project 42nd floor / The shadow exploded and in her lecture at BAI, Ulrika Segerberg will focus on talking about developing that specific work. 42nd floor / The shadow exploded takes its starting point from the horror film, Carrie (Brian De Palma, 1976) and brings together many media and materials that have been part of Ulrika Segerberg’s recent practice: installation, sculpture, video, sound, music and text. The result – objects zooming in on different aspects of the film and a series of experimental films/music videos where she has invited her friends to embody Carrie, her mother, sister and Carries classmates.
During her three day seminar she will visit the students in their studios. She wishes to encourage the students to think about ways to develop an individual as well as collective working process. In what ways can we – in a shared studio situation like the one in BAI – support each other and profit from a collective knowledge?” (Text by courtesy of Ulrika Segerberg)
