PROJECT RETREAT 10th - 19th of February 2018- Retreat is a project that examines the absence of light through the context of visual art -
During 10 days at the Retreat in the Nordic Art School, the Swedish artist Tilda Dalunde was examining how the absence of light was affecting the use of her language in writing.
Tilda wrote down some thoughts before entering the room:
How will my thinking and writing be effected by the absence of light? Who am I without everything my eyes let into my brain and the safety of being able to judge my surroundings with sight? What will want to be written? What will come after the boredom, that I’m sure comes first, as a result of the absence of distractions: no computer, no phone, no book, no knitting, nothing to see? Who am I in that situation? With only a pen and a paper in the dark.

At the Artist Talk on the 7th of February Tilda and Meri will tell about, and go through the details of the accomplished project.
You are very welcome!
