Walking into the Summer..

Crossing roads, navigating sidewalks. When walking, we choose paths and change routes; our bodies shift, mould, and sense the public space. How do our everyday movements shape the environment? To what extent does the path we take influence not only our movements but also our thoughts, feelings? And what access to and experience of the street do different bodies have? We are interested in the way that walking and our daily use of public spaces invite us to understand our surroundings, and wonder if they can be used as a research practice. Could walking provide us with critical and transformative perspectives? 

July 6th, when the summer has started and the academic year draws to an end, we invite you to dive into these questions with us. Through video work and a guest lecture by Christine van Royen and a guided walk we will examine different entry points into walking and everyday movement. Connecting praxis and theory we will finish the afternoon program with a walk. Performance artist Kamila Wolszczak takes us outside and challenges us to take a different perspective on our surroundings by looking closely at hidden narratives inhabiting the streets. Come join us! 

Meet..

Tânia Cardoso

This event is a collaboration between VOX-POP and Tânia Cardoso. Tânia is an illustrator, urbanist, and PhD candidate in artistic research at the University of Amsterdam investigating the ground-based experience of the illustrator while she walks and draws the street exploring the poetics of everyday life and connecting urban experience, place and imagination. Together with F. Ranalli, F. Smits and Prof. Dr. A. Twemlow she organizes the Walking as Research Practice (WARP) Conference ‘Walking-with Amsterdam’; for those who are interested, you are warmly invited to respond to their open call.

Kamila Wolszczak

Kamila Wolszczak is a Netherlands-based Polish visual artist and researcher. She creates performance, text and installation projects based on the relations between self-organized public side space and artifacts and human traces. She enjoys collaborative projects and co-creation, specifically the blending of facts with speculation. She accepts change as inevitable and tries to find a way to communicate with that and believes in the power of matter and communities, creativities as a magic tool for real shifts in society. Kamila has studied at the Maria Curie-Sklodowska University Lublin (Painting BA), the Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław (Art Mediation MA) and Fontys University (Performing Public Space Artistic Research MA). 

 

Christine van Royen 

Christine van Royen (1957) studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Rijksakademie, BA History of Art, Artistic Research MA.Throughout her studies at the UvA she kept an interest in art and artists from the Seventies, such as the movement ‘Spurensicherung’ and the micro-emotive attitude, that she uses as an approach for walking. In her practice, analogue and digital photography are conceptualized as a sensorial assemblage, in which the photograph is seen as not only the result of the camera and film but an assemblage of everything playing part in it: the weather, the light, the man-made camera, the photographer and more.

In one of her recent projects experiences of walking, aesthetics of death and encounters with other animals and things were recently shown in Stichting La Jetée/Foundation Jetty in Amsterdam, with plants and photographs gathered while walking in Italy. The finissage at La Jetée was celebrated with a micro-emotive city walk, revealing new issues to be researched in the more than human world, looking and feeling relations between human animals and animals, weeds and plants. Why and how are we making all the distinctions between garden plants and weeds, or consumption animals like rabbits and chicken and significant others that have names and histories? A small petting zoo became the goal of the walk and meanwhile we looked at liminal -hybrid animals such as pigeons and paid attention to the difference between plants in gardens and wild plants between the stones.
