California-based artist and curator Chiara Giovando has invited Leif Elggren and Marja-Leena Sillanpää to do a program on sound, stones and shamanistic channelings, relating to some notions in the performance Three White Soldiers.

Love Enqvist and Ewa Majewska will present a lecture-performance – Recovering Space - on utopia and economy, departing from Love Enqvists’ works Diggers and Dreamers and Magellania.

Patricia Vane will also participate with the installation Destore, a shapeless, ever transforming concept store for new socioeconomic change where two modes of existence struggle for the spirit of humankind: to have or to be? The installation will be up and running all three evenings.

The program is part of the ongoing research work Three White Soldiers: Departing from algorithmic trading the work explores various ”time-spaces” operating beyond the human perception, and the use of patterns and images to visualize worlds and events impenetrable to the human horizon. Anders Paulin and Johan Forsman are currently doing research around notions like bitcoins, data-mining, minerals, cavepaintings and earth inheritance.

Most welcome to join us!

gate 1

If we imagine a gate we might think of an entrance to another state (national or mental) – it might be a place for phantasies, political negotiations, economical transactions, or even magical disappearances or dreams.

Caucasus for sure is a backdrop for dreams and myths, but also of conflict, war and traces of a fallen soviet empire. The region is naturally framed between big civilizations by the Black and Caspian seas, the big Caucasus Range, steps and diverse mountain ranges. From west it met Greek-Roman-Byzantine-European, from north: Scythes-Alan’s – Khazars – Slav’s, from east: Iranian – Mongols – Seltchucs, from south: Mesopotamian – Arabic…. The Great Silk Route was not only passing through the Caucasus – it was a crucial exchange point for goods between east and west.

During three weeks the Tbilisi based Tetsi Group will work together with invited artists to explore the idea of gates as a format for artistic interaction and learning. The concept of the gates brings the whole program of this thematic block into an processual uncontrolled artwork and proposes an understanding of art not primarily as objects on display, but rather as the creation of openings and journeys.
