HYBRID is the exhibition program at BKN/Björkö Konstnod. It is a transformative, dynamic space for art that engages with life and nature; a space for developing concepts of community and poetic investigations.

HYBRID seeks to explore and interpret possibilities beyond the violence of algorithms, egoism, deforestation, water preservation, life/living in costal setting, narrowmindedness and repression. From its core HYBRID extends to sites indoors and outdoors on or off the island.

Keywords: asymmetry, entanglement, beyond violence, not-knowing, desire, nature, responsibility, deep listening, close seeing.

The initiative is is artist run, with great support from people at Björkö.

Beatrice Alvestad Lopez, Norwegian based in Stockholm

AiR BKN Dec 2021

My practice moves between fields of poetic cinematography, embodied writing, installation of crafted objects and in-situ land-based actions. As a context-based practice concerned with geo-bodies, hybridity, hydro feminism and poetic narratives. Emphasizing a connection to place and openness toward the nonhuman, vegetative and planetary bodies. The landscape being an imaginative force in relation to my own body by a performative materiality and choreographed gesture.
I place myself in the field of hydro-feminism, post-human temporalities and ecological care - doing field trips, collaborations and collective exchanges as ways to build situational knowledge and research material.

Zoey Hart, based in Brooklyn, NY, USA

AiR BKN Dec 2021- Feb 2022, May-July 2022 (2x2 months)
Zoey Hart is an interdisciplinary artist, educator and collaborator living with chronic illness, mostly based in Brooklyn, NY. Driven by the frictions between invisible disability and modern medicine, my visual/performative practice re-centers the notion of what constitutes well-being in changing social and environmental contexts. Harts life and work continue to be co-informed by the process of navigating disability through inaccessible terrain. 

The materials, processes, spaces and activations in my work evolve and adapt with the fluidity of shifting access needs, and how I can best access new environments that continue to inspire me. Of late, I have been working on a series critically examining care and accessibility as they function in the natural world. From Myco/Access work with mushrooms in Finland, to Waterfront Access Mapping with Works on Water in NYC, I try to read access, sustainability, resilience and wellbeing in the specific social, cultural and environmental conditions under which I live and work.

Zoey Hart is part of HAVET SOM, OMGER OSS (The Sea That Surrounds us) where she will be based on Björkö and work with Sigö as her site.

Lisa and Hugo Gordillo, Michigan, USA

AiR BKN May 2022

Lisa (b. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.) and Hugo Gordillo (b. Guatemala City, Guatemala) first met as artists-in-residence at the Vermont Studio Center, where neither spoke the other’s language. Over time they have sounded out, written, and built a working relationship that connects their countries’ common stories; and made a little blue house together in rural upper Michigan. The pair is interested in the capacity of art for storytelling, in what collective memory looks like, in how many sides we see, and how many sides we miss, and why that might be. Their collaboration Brazada, which roughly translates as, as far as outstretched arms may reach, follows the Guatemalan civil war and U.S. complicity in its most violent acts. Their work builds on Hugo’s career as a journalist (1980-2012), and his current work as a writer and poet, and on Lisa’s background as a sculptor and performance artist. Together, Brazada creates works of art and writing that offer entry points into a difficult international narrative whose history remains mostly unacknowledged.

Biilyana Furnadzhieva, Bulgaria/France

AiR BKN, 1 month in 2020, 2021, 2022
born in Sofia, Bulgaria, in 1992, she lives and works in Paris.

for bilyana furnadzhieva Nature is the first human reality.
attentive to the sonic and formal variety of the natural forces and phenomena bilyana translates them into a visual and sound narrative.
the lines, colors and shapes in her artworks are intended to pacify the relationship of man to his environment at the time of a significant ecological threat. bilyana creates a unique language in which opposing parts collide - neat elements, made by herself and raw elements, found during her moments of exploration. she gets comfortable with subjects, materials, mediums - from drawing, collage, sculpture to musical composition and editing.

Aurike Quintelier, Belgium/Australia

AiR BKN Jan-Feb 2021

Aurike Quintelier is a visual artist, architect and Phd candidate at Univ Tasmania, Australia. Every project has a strong emphasis on experiment and exploration, trying to find a way to communicate.  The research Quintelier is currently conducting, "Building Out Whispering. Con-structions on the Imagination of Place”, finds itself on the intersection of architecture and art. It explores the possibilities of how spatial interventions/integrations can engage with different aspects of place, space, environment, and make abstract topics such as climate change and its consequences discussable. Quintelier aims to reveal how all aspects of place are entangled (its history, geology, possible futures, eco-systems, etc.) in order to create structures that bring closer nature and culture.

Oona Hyland, Ireland
AiR BKN  Feb- April,  2021, June-July 2022 (2 by 2 months)
Oona Hyland is a visual artist working on a specific series of work utilizing her training in printmaking with large scale sculptural installations of paper and ceramic based works. This work is groundbreaking and innovative, it challenges the boundaries of different disciplines, recent works use the matrix from print technologies, and sculpture. 

She represented Ireland at the Onsaemiro Project, a research and exhibition in the Joint Security Area between North and South Korea in 2019 and the Sao Paulo Biennale event ' Beyond the Horizon' in 2018, the LAF17 Festival France and in 2016 participated in 'Patrons Prizes Paradigms', The Ernie O Malley Art Awards Ireland.

Åsa Öhrn,
I try to connect reality through the materials I encounter in nature, society and in the individual. Has a background as a musician and thinks that art has a rhythm and a melody that requires silence to perceive. That is the silence I try to hear and convey. During my Fme on Björkö I found a lot in nature, including skeletal pieces of wild boar, who in turn have lived there much longer than I have. With the findings comes a reflecFon of my
own process as I am currently in a major phase of change. Transience lives everywhere. Ritually, I start processing the remains of the animals, washing them thoroughly, talking to them, listening to them and painFng them - and finally joining them into something new. Restores their existence. In
the process, I move on and discover my own rebirth - transformation.

Anna Viola Hallberg , Sweden

Anna Viola Hallberg's work - as an artist and curator - interacts with specific communities, while addressing social or political contingencies and by this, taking on a critical stance towards public space/sphere an in the process relating to existential makers for the individuals as well as through society. Hallberg's art practice is informed by the notion of in-betweenness, as personal experience and geopolitical position. Her methodology in the immersive space-narrations of video, sound, photography, and text brings forward a discussion on the documentary of experience, remembrance, and emotions rendering collective memory/affect and the work for social justice
