Exhibition: Opening, Sunday, December 4, 4pm – 6pm. 

Optional: Collection of sounds around Kirseberg, Friday December 2nd, starting at 7pm

Continuation of workshop: Sunday December 4t, a 10am-4pm

This workshop is an exercise in attentiveness considered a potential opening towards the development of new aesthetic sensibilities and fictional universes. Working across different senses and media, participants create a series of fictions based on the encounter with the local environment in Kirseberg.

Exploring notions of collaborative fictioning, sounds recorded in Kirseberg are turned into interwoven sketches and fragments of narrative. The result will be compiled into an artist book and left on display in the gallery.

Artists’ Books. Taking the notion of the artists’ book as a point of departure and exploring the social and collaborative dimension of book making, the material assembled in the workshop during Saturday will be turned into an unique publication exhibited in the gallery during Sunday.

If you can’t attend all days, we suggest to prioritise the full workshop on Saturday.  To sign up, please e-mail gallery@petralilja.se

Naturally, you are welcome to the opening on Sunday December 4th at 4-6pm! No signing up needed.
