Artist talk

Janne-Camilla Lyster, Solveig Styve Holte, Eszter Salamon, Rosalind Goldberg, and Per Roar in “Dancing Archives”

The session has two parts:

About part one:

In the autumn of 2022, Lyster and Holte each developed a solo based on the life and work of the Israeli choreographer Noa Eshkol: “Time and solitude” (Lyster) and “Undying – a handwork” (Holte). The solos were created as moving objects for museum and gallery spaces and shown at the National Museum in Oslo (18.09) and at Norrköping’s Art Museum (23-24.09) as part of the exhibition “Noa Eshkol: Rules, Theory & Passion”.

In the session, Holte and Lyster will present these short solos as movement objects, share information about Noa Eshkol’s life and work, and discuss the use of choreographic methods when encountering archival material and ways to document and share the solos outside their original context.

    About part two:

    “A conversation on Artistic Research and Archives” with Eszter Salamon, Rosalind Goldberg, Janne-Camilla Lyster, Solveig Styve Holte, and Per Roar (moderator).

    The session is a moderated conversation on the relationship between artistic research and the requirement to document and store artistic research results in a permanent form, and about the role and function of the archive and archiving in artistic research. By referring to various forms of traces that their respective artistic research projects are creating, the panelists will also discuss what artistic research may produce for future dance artists and the field.

    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.


    Polyvocal Tongue 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.


    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.
