Workshop: “Critical documentation: How to look at the past and not re-produce the future” by Emmeli Person
Emmeli Person is an artist working within the framework of curatorial and critical learning practices. As an artist, her work extends itself within the expanded fields of storytelling, sculpture, and time-based media, embracing a critical and humoristic approach to the objects we sometimes call art. Her research and practice organize themselves in playful and speculative ways as they look at how we collectively can challenge and re-tell the narratives that condition our material and emotional realities. Recent projects look into the potential of re-telling local heritage stories through intimate collaborations with plants. The artist is based in Stockholm. She is a Curator of Learning at Index Foundation where she leads “Going to an exhibition in character”-workshops, Parrot School, and Index Teen Advisory Board. Emmeli is also a Curator for Film i Samtidskonsten. Emmeli works extensively with artistic and educational platforms and is a returning lecturer at Ölands Konstskola, as well as a visiting lecturer at Stockholm University, Konstfack University for Arts and Craft, Royal Institute of Art, and Tensta konsthall among others. Emmeli is participating in a Critical Theory and Art Praxes program (2020-2022) at the Dutch Art Institute.
This event is a part of the camp program.
