Embodied making and moving experimentation/conversations.

This exhibition presents the ‘remains’ of Charlotte Østergaard’s PhD project “Costume sampling. Embodied making and moving experimentation/conversations”, which took place in IAC’s Black Room from 1 to 11 November. During the individual sessions the participants explored, experimented, and discussed particular costume material though the acts of making and moving.

The exhibition offers a glimpse into the costume research process:

– Traces of bodies making and sampling or traces of multiple versions or variations of embodied conversations and improvisations.

– Traces of bodies wearing and/or being entangled or traces of material movement explorations in-between sensing, touching, wearing, being affected, imagining, responding, and witnessing.

– Traces of mappings of co-creative landscapes and trails.

The exhibition consists of a textile installation and a sketchbook.

The exhibition is part of Charlotte Østergaard’s artistic research: ‘Crafting Material Bodies – radical co-creation in the field of costume design’ as PhD student at Malmö Teater Academy, Lunds University.
