ArtworkVol. 2Curatorial-Editorial Statement and Introduction•
The second volume of Experiments and Intensities takes us on a journey through and around an impossibly utopian notion – a sort of opposite of the experience of the traumatic, which we’re calling ‘ex-trauma’. We’re seeking not the expression of, or recovery from, trauma – though these themes certainly come up – but rather, we wonder whether the traumatic has an inverse, and if so, whether artists can help us identify it.
ArtworkVol. 2Winter Garden
Winter GardenA performance for video • artist: Essi Kausalainen
Winter Garden is a performance made for the camera. It was filmed in a winter day on ice, near the city of Kuopio, Finland. Conjoining beauty and horror, strength and fragility, the tropical and the Arctic co-exist, and the tension between ‘striving for’ and ‘striving against’ is set in stark relief as blooms freeze.
