Put Yourself in My Place: Umeå 2014, 4.-13. 04. 2014. Opening: 14.04., 19:00, around the CORNERS from the Verkligheten Galley, Skolgatan 91, Umeå.
On April 4th, a new and exciting phase of CORNERS is launching, with the multimedia project Put yourself in my place. After a series of Xpeditions where artists and researchers explored corners of Europe, gathering stories and inspiration for artistic projects, it’s time now to share these stories. To bring them back to places that inspired them. One such story, Put yourself in my place, connects Balkan and North through the brave and challenging “exchange” arranged by Milijana Babić and Ida Hansson.
Molekula, Delta 5/1, Rijeka Wednesday, 18.12.2013., 19h
In the artistic project Put yourself in my place the artists Milijana Babić (Rijeka, HR) and Ida Hansson (Umeå, SE) exchange their living and working environments, with an aim of going through the experience of ‘another life’ in some other geographical corner of Europe. In the period of three weeks, each artist performs a series of actions inspired from the life of the other artist, looking at things from her own perspective and confronting herself. [...]
The CORNERS Balkan Xpedition came to an end on Sunday 29th of April. The last get-together happended at Molekula, also known as Drugo Mores living room.
Many fantastic ideas sprang from the trip and now everyone is working on putting them to practice. After discussing the further proceedings, the whole crew embarked on a boat trip and enjoyed the sunshine after the snow and rains of the previous days.
The day ended with a public discussion on the role of the Balkan artist in a European context.
