2022 Gothenburg, Sweden;
My role: Curator & Artistic Director
Panophilia is an orchestral performance project where visual artists, musicians and performers collectively create a site-specific piece beyond the confines of result/product but rather explore the process in itself. The idea: how to achieve the dissolution of physical, mental, and genre boundaries by creating something together. The happening is the outcome, there will be no product to sell. Instead, the process of producing art and live music collectively and being the productive body becomes the actual artwork.
The conventional delineation between performer and attendee will be abandoned. We no longer distinguish between stage, orchestra, white cube, parking lot, and dancefloor. The event is walkable all around. Sight, sound, scent, locale, and people become one. There are no guest stars – everyone’s a guest, everyone’s a star.
I am the curator and artistic director for this interdisciplinary performance project. Panophilia is presented by Cornbread & Röda Sten Konsthallen with generous support by the Swedish Arts Council and the City of Gothenburg.
