WALKING AS PRACTICE is a process-based residency, where we delve into each others’ knowledges and things we encounter together on Burch island/Björkö
Interventions weave across different registers of time and site. The focus is on how walking is interlocked in our practices. Fieldworks and seminars are jointly done to locate and entangle structures, narratives and forces. We believe in a safe and friendly attitude as part of the art scene we share.
BKN fosters a peer-based environment: “thinking together, learning together” - a resource and semi public forum to explore and experiment. Jointly, we form a transformative, dynamic space for art that engages with life and nature towards critical and poetic explorations, influenced by the immediate surroundings; the forest, lakes, sea and people living in the rural area.
Program dissemination will be in an online format and a series of open studios/walks as engagement with the local community.
Keywords: walking, asymmetry, entanglement, beyond violence, not-knowing, desire, nature, responsibility, deep listening, close seeing, territory, contested sites.
