Letters from Past-Futurity
This exhibition is a new version of a field notes diary of the researcher written during their stay in the Öres residency program in March 2020. The main themes of the exhibition are slowness and silence. The text focuses on experimenting with time and work schedules outside the city. In contrast, it discusses the ableist conditions of academic and artistic spaces.
At Örö, the researcher experimented with video, photography and writing by thinking with slowness and silence with the island’s old and slow-growing structures.
