FRIDAY 24.06.2022
Before they all finish their residencies in the coming weeks, the current Atelier Mondial guest artists open the doors of their studios this coming Friday and share with us what they have been producing during their stay in Basel.
Manami Hayasaki (Tokyo):
She used to make the most filigree silhouette sculptures from paper. Yet during her stay in Basel she remembered a flower of her childhood, the dandelion, which exists in two varieties in Japan – one of them being the invasive European variety. In her “Dandelion Smuggler” project, Hayasaki plays with the notion of borders, plants, and the TriRegion of Basel.
Elise Lafontaine (Canada):
The Canadian painter will share documentation of her new body of work – Make a circle sound like a new sun – created during her residency at Atelier Mondial for her first international solo exhibition, currently on view at Sothu, Zurich. Parallel to this, Lafontaine will present her ongoing research of the Goetheanum located on the hill in Dornach. 
Anna Lugovska (Ukraine):
The curator and artist will show her recent art works created in the studio as well as the pictures of the murals she created for an exhibition in Geneva and Basel during her residency.
Venue: Salon Mondial at Atelier Mondial, Freilager-Platz 9, 4142 Münchenstein/Basel, Switzerland (Tram No. 11 to Freilager)
Date and time: Friday, 24th of June, 14:00-20:00h

Jeudi en résidence with María Negroni

A mute word
Thursday 7 July 2022 from 18:30 to 19:30
Event in English, with readings in Spanish
Entrance: Free admission, upon reservation on line
Every first Thursday of each month, from 6.30 to 7.30 pm, a writer in residence opens a window on his or her work, universe and motives, in a free form of intervention. An hour of carte blanche to share, followed by a drink.
What a poem strives for is not to ratify concepts nor to search for certainties, but rather to create a space where questions are posed, where imagination and desire can flourish and broaden, in the process, reality itself. In a true poem, all categories are called into question: emotion thinks, syntax is moved, form defends solitude, silence reaches the difficult status of the “mot muet”, as proposed by Jacques Rancière. Maybe this is why true writing always subverts the conventional, including the convention of language itself.
María Negroni, born 1951 in Rosario, is an Argentinian novelist, poet, essayist and translator. In her thirties she moved into New York City to pursue a PhD in Latin American literature at Columbia University. She then taught for more than a decade at Sarah Lawrence College. She returned to Argentina in 2014 and created the first Master in creative writing to exist in the country and teaches at UNTREF (Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero). She has published numerous books, including in English Night Journey (Princeton University Press, 2002) and Berlin Interlude (Black Square, 2021), and received many awards.

Open Studio Opiyo Okach

Friday, 17 June 22: 2-8 pm
Walk-in/walk-out ongoing installation
AiR studio, office Trakt A, first floor to the left, free entry

“Together with Swiss-Ukranian dancer Yevheniya Kravets and Kenyan sound artist/ambient composer Joseph Kamaru (KMRU) we will be sharing and trying out some of the process we’ve been working on in the form of a walk-in walk-out performance installation.
During my residency ‘Bodies in disPlacement’ I’ve been working around the idea of resonance. The way that things that happen in one place can have impact in other places. The ways we may or may not be (dis)connected. I’ve been contemplating how live performance may not be just ‘me here right now’ but ‘me you, here there, now then’. About performance as something that may be fragmented, extended and interacted across multiple time and geography. Working with different artistic collaborators over the past weeks we’ve specifically been thinking about presence & relationships of object and image; relationship of the performers body, movement, gesture and their image.
Using digital tools and creative programming we’ve been experimenting with a spatial and audio-visual installation that permits the performer to interact and improvise with their own image and the space about them. A sort of prototype of a more developed system. Interesting questions about autonomy and control have began to emerge. Who is in control? the performer or the image. How does the spectator perceive or engage with the dispositive.
We’ve also been looking at how this installation may function as a space with which visitors may engage.”
