Presentation

“Polyvocal Tongue!” Tale Næss

The presentation will focus on relational ethics and polyvocality in performative text. It will also explore the use of plural languages in a play, looking at how a polylingual praxis can open up new aesthetic potential in playwrighting and in artistic research in general. 

The artistic material will echo how addresses can be the base for, or in itself constitute, the generic force in the text. 

At the chore of both the talk and the artistic work, will be the idea of reciprocity as fundamental both for ethical thinking and performative praxis. Inspired by the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas – I will look at how the “opening up” for “the other” can create a potential of change, and through that turn an exchange into an event in itself. I will also reflect on how this exchange can constitute a potential communal space where new thoughts and experiences, both political and private, can be produced and shared.

The presentation will address how and in what way polyvocality/the poly-lingual and relational ethics have influenced my artistic research, and on its potentials for opening artistic research up for vulnerability through a “real” or reciprocal exchange. It will also explore how working within a relational ethics can create a hospitable space for communal thinking that increases its vitality. 

The presentation consists of two parts – an introduction followed by a dramatic metalogue.

Work Group

Objective Enactive
This online lecture-demonstration unfolds the term ´Poetic Materiality´ within the context of designing and choreographing with Somatic Costumes. Through critiquing and applying the somatic practice of Skinner Releasing Technique, the poetics of philosopher Gaston Bachelard and the materiality of anthropologist Tim Ingold, this talk begins to map poetic and material agencies between bodies-costumes within the design-performance encounter.

Artist Talk

Objective Enactive

This talk will focus on the first outcome of Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, a tripartite site-specific, where I am pursuing a speculative exploration of the ecology of the city, between the urban and the biological, unfolding its layers and materiality of time. The talk will end in a conversation between fellow researchers and artists in the collaborative project Urban Ecologies, where Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, is generated from.

Conversation

TRANSPOSITIONS— JAR, Mette Edvardsen and modular diaries

At the start, the idea for an artistic research conversation with Mette Edvardsen did not spring out of the topics shortlisted for the conference—hospitality, vulnerability and care—but a book that she had co-edited, and dropped in my shelf.

Panel Discussion

The Ethics of Vulnerability and Artistic Research

Any ethical framework must take account of the vulnerability of the human condition. This is significant in all creative endeavours – especially in artistic practice and the teaching of it – since the very act of creating something and putting it out into the world is an expression of vulnerability.
