How is art created?  In residence, of course!

Inkonst has for many years had artists and groups in residence. We have done both in-house residencies and collaborative residencies with our neighbor Inter Arts Center. Together we have created a residency program with a multidisciplinary artistic focus, where we invite professional artists who challenge the performing arts and visual arts traditional frames to create new and different projects. New this year is that the residency program will also cover the field of music and artists working in the borderland between art, sound art and experimental club culture.

Those who work in the residence have access to a place to work to develop and explore new ideas, thoughts or pieces. Our house is both a place for artists to present their final works but also a place for figuring out where once art is heading next. It is important for us to create a vibrant meeting place for the groundbreaking, unexpected, innovative and resourceful.

We want to be an open house, where audiences and artists meets and work, where we produce and discuss. Slipping into Inkonst is to slide into a bubbling jacuzzi of ideas and creativity for the future.

Artists in residence spring 2017

”Vice Versa” Benno Voorham & Abdalla Omari (27 feb–5 mars)

Vice Versa is the working name for a collaboration between the Syrian artist Abdalla Omari and Dutch/Swedish dance artist Benno Voorham. During a two-week-long stay at the museum Vitlycke Centre for Performing Arts they started researching different strategies to bring the visual arts and dance together in a common dramaturgical context. Now this work continues in a residency at Inkonst. The content of the work is based on different stories of children who live in or have fled Syria. Their intention is to create a captivating documentary show about survival, loss, conflict, destruction and how to hold a seed of hope, optimism and dignity alive.

On March 5th at 3 pm, we will have a public viewing of the work.

Abdalla Omari is a Syrian painter, performance artist and filmmaker currently living in Brussels. Recently, he created The Vulnerability Series, depicting world leaders in very vulnerable situations and break the image of their absolute power.

Benno Voorham is a Dutch dance artist living in Sweden since 1995. In recent years he has created productions with different groups of marginalized children; HOME with social orphans in Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus and Waiting in the Margins with internal refugee in Georgia.

Vice Versa is produced by LAVA-Dance Production. The residence is made possible through the generous support of the Arts.
