    Swap Space | March-April 2022

     

    …an ephemeral space to gather thoughts & notes

     

    Swap Space is a pilot project at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz that focuses on novel forms of collaborative artistic research in which otherness, difference and distance between the participants are central and are brought into a cohesive form via the concept of the spatial. Selected questions and previously sketched procedures are an important part of Swap Space and will be tested for their validity and feasibility in a time-limited experiment among six artists and researchers as a proof-of-concept. Thus, on the one hand, the pilot project provides important data and preliminary results, sets the course and ensures that the future project design is viable. On the other hand, swap space takes up new decisive impulses for thought—such as the concept of contact—the elaboration of which aims to determine the form of a multi-year research project. -via Swap Space on Research Catalogue

    “Jackie Karuti constructs her practice in the in-between space of stillness and movement. It is within these moments of stillness that we can begin to think about how to move, how fast we will travel, where we will go and whether we choose to journey individually, collectively or a combination of both. Often assembling numerous drawings, objects and sometimes her body, she moves through complex conceptual territory, but never quite reveals the final destination. She allows others to join her movement in the tools she provides, but does not force you to utilize them…”
