Athöfn – snúin afstaða til hlutarins

 Dagana 29. og 30. janúar næstkomandi mun myndlistardeild Listaháskóla Íslands halda ráðstefnu undir yfirskriftinni “Athöfn- snúin afstaða til hlutarins”. Viðfangsefni ráðstefnunar er sú athöfn sem býr í listsköpunarferlinu og niðurstöðu þess. Athöfnin sem hluti af listrænu sköpunarferli varð afgerandi þáttur listaverksins og listkenninga á seinni hluta 20 aldar. Verk og vinnuaðferðir listamanna eins og Jackson Pollock, Allan Kaprow, Hanna Wilke og Mary Kelly, svo nokkrir séu nefndir, settu athöfnina í nýtt og oft óvænt samhengi. Spurningar um ásetning, merkingu og afmörkun listrænnar athafnar frá öðrum meðvituðum athöfnum urðu að fræðilegu viðfangsefni og með tilkomu hreyfinga á borð við Fluxus, Naumhyggju og Land Art, varð hlutverk athafnarinnar jafnvel enn snúnara í ferli listrænnar sköpunar, og jafnframt áhugaverðara viðfangsefni.

Nú er lag að fjalla aftur um þennan þátt listrænnar sköpunar. Með tilkomu miðla eins og vídeólistar, internetsins, aðferðafræði þátttökulistar og póst stúdíó hugmynda, hefur hlutverk, merking, og aðferðafræðilegt samhengi athafna listamannsins tekið á sig fjölbreyttari myndir. Einnig vekur aukið vægi listrannsókna innan listaháskóla spurningar um hlutverk athafnarinnar í tengslum við listmiðilinn, í samhengi listaverksins, og í fræðilegri úrvinnslu.

Tekist verður á við hugmyndir um listræn sköpunarferli í fyrirlestrum og umræðum um verk og þemu þeirra listamanna sem þátt taka í ráðstefnunni. Ætlunin er að skoða aðferðafræði, sögu, fagurfræði, og almenna stöðu athafnarinnar í listsköpun samtímans.

Þátttakendur eru Bryndís H Snæbjörnsdóttir, gestaprófessor myndlistadeildar Listaháskóla Íslands, Frans Jacobi, prófessor á sviði gjörninga við Listaháskólann í Bergen, Johan Grimonprez, myndlistamaður með aðsetur í Brüssel, Ragnar Kjartansson, myndlistamaður með aðsetur í Reykjavík og Ulrika Ferm, prófessor fyrir staðbundna myndlist við Listaháskólann í Helsinki.

Allir eru velkomnir meðan húsrúm leyfir.

Action – a twisted relation to the object

On the 29th and 30th of January the conference “Action – a twisted relation to the object” will be held at the Department of Fine Art at the Icelandic Academy of the Arts.

The action involved in the artistic process was brought into focus as a discernible feature of art making in the second half of the 20th century, especially in the context of artists like Jackson Pollock, Allan Kaprow, Hanna Wilke and Mary Kelly, to name a few. Questions about intentionality, meaning, and the demarcation of the creative act from other intentional actions became everyday features of art theory and commonplace in the writings of artists. With the introduction of Fluxus, Minimal art and Land art, the role of the action in the process of art became even more problematic, and more interesting.

Now is a good time to revisit and reexamine this element of the artistic process. With the introduction of mediums like Film and Video art, Internet art, and approaches like post studio practice and participatory art, the role, meaning, and methodological context of the action of the artist has taken on more diverse dimensions. And with the rise of artistic research within the art academies questions about the role of action, in relation to the medium, to the artwork, and to theory is even more pressing.
The aim of the confrence is to look at methodological, historical, aesthetic, and practical aspects of this new status of the act in art making.

Participants are Bryndís H Snæbjörnsdóttir, visiting professor at the Icelandic Academy of the Arts, Frans Jacobi, professor in timebased media and performance at Bergen, Academy of Art & Design, Johan Grimonprez, artist living in Brüssels, Ragnar Kjartansson, artist living in Reykjavík and Ulrika Ferm, professor in site-specific art at the Academy in Helsinki.

þátttakendur:

 Frans Jacobi

Frans Jacobi is a visual artist. Lives and works in Copenhagen and Bergen. Jacobi works with performance, text and images. His performances and installations are often large scale scenarios with multiple participants adressing a range of political and societal issues. Using a kind of urgent aesthetics the temporality and presence becomes a point in itself.

Jacobi is professor in timebased media / performance at KHiB, Bergen Academy of Art & Design since 2012. He completed his PhD ‘Aesthetics of Resitance’ at Malmö Art Academy/Lunds University in 2012.

In 2014 Jacobi established the artist-group SYNSMASKINEN. The group works as a platform for the artistic-research project ‘SYNSMASKINEN: 7 fields of contemporary crisis’ based at KHiB, Bergen Academy of Art & Design. Simultaneously SYNSMASKINEN works as a platform for various other projects.

She works in photography, installation and in collaborations often containing performance elements. She also belongs to the artist collective Platform in Vaasa which presents site specific disciplines. Apart from founding Platform, Ferm also has broad curatorial and organisational experience.

Ferm has an MA from the University of Art and Design Helsinki (1998) and also graduated from Hochschule der Kunste, Berlin (2001). Currently she is working as a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki.

Grimonprez currently divides his time between Brussels and New York, where he participated in the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program and lectures at the School of Visual Arts.

Ragnar Kjartansson

Ragnar draws on the entire arc of art in his performative practice. The history of film, music, theatre, visual culture and literature find their way into his video installations, durational performances, drawing and painting. Pretending and staging become key tools in the artist’s attempt to convey sincere emotion and offer a genuine experience to the audience.

Kjartansson’s work has been exhibited widely. Recent solo exhibitions and performances have been held at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, New Museum in New York, ICA Boston, Guggenheim Bilbao, Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, the Carnegie Museum of Art, and PS1 MoMA.
