MEETINGS Mid and West Jutland, Denmark
Commissioned, site specific performance and video art
24-28 October 2016 and 1-10 September 2017

I have been invited to participate in TIME, SITE & LORE, a collaboration between 4 culture-historical museums, 5 Central and West Jutland localities, 5 international artists and ET4U about an artistic interpretation of selected museum objects or stories – contemporary art at the intersection of museological knowledge and local lore.

The participating museums are The Open Air Museum Hjerl Hede (Holstebro), Fur Fossils 55 million years (Skive), Lemvig Museum and Struer Museum. The five sites are Sdr. Lyngvig (Ringkøbing-Skjern), Stenøre – Fur Harbour (Skive), Rom (Lemvig), Humlum and Oddesund North (Struer). The artists are Gigi Scaria (India), Yuval Yairi (Israel), Sadik Kwaish Al Fraji (Iraq / Netherlands), Gunilla Josephson (Sweden / Canada) and Bassem Yousri (Egypt).

The finished video works will be displayed in the museums as part of the Cultural Collaboration in Mid and West Jutland’s festival OFF ROAD 11 April to 6 May 2017. A documentary catalog about the project will be available in both a printed and a web version.
