Ida Lennartsson and Natasja Loutchko invite you to the performative presentation of their ongoing project: How to not be sick in a sick world?
Warm welcome to Malongen, Nytorget 15A
16.00 – 20.00 Open studio screening video work
18.30 Performative presentation with Lennartsson and Loutchko.
The duo, acting as both artist and curator, started collaborating in 2019 with Lennartsson's solo show An udder kiss at Loutchko's project space CAVE3000 in Berlin. The dialogue between them has since then developed into an ongoing video project, a physical and emotional journey to some common thoughts around fragility, sickness and care. As part of their open studio at the Nordic guest studio Malongen, Lennartsson and Loutchko will invite the public to take part in their ongoing video process and work.
Ida Lennartsson is a Swedish artist based in Berlin. Lennartsson represents a broad understanding of sculpture in different media where the core of each is the tactile handling of the material and its affective possibilities with regard to social constructions of the Other. In her works Lennartsson explores the balancing act between private and collective signs of different systems, biological, psychological etc. Her attempt is to externalize the complex affects that result from confronting the internalized rejection of the body, its organs and fluids: to shift or set in motion notions of nature and culture.
Natasja Loutchko (she/they) is an artist based in Stockholm. Her work, centered around video and performance, draws from the dynamics of collaborations and working within her direct experiences to explore themes of trauma and care. Exploring the making public of her own navigation within complex layers of emotions, Loutchko embrasses trash and tenderness as one fluid movement between herself and the spectator. In her socio-documentary film work that reflects both tenderness and conflict, she develops a deliberately naive and raw aesthetic, while addressing themes such as mother-daughter relationship, addiction, dissociation and the struggle for care and connectivity.
