Talk programs | 02.11.2020

Elena Lavelles

Ušće in Motion

Workshop on 2nd and 3rd November, 2020

 

participants:

Jelica Ćulafić, Nina Galić, Nada Jeftenić, Stanislava Paunović, Gabriel Llinas, Mina Stanimirović, Sara Tanasković, Emilija Vučićević

 

Ušće means confluence in Serbian and it is also the site where the Museum of

Contemporary Art (MoCAB) is located, a confluence between two rivers: Sava and

Danube.

This place performs as the physical and conceptual symbol in this lab, for which is

important to think about the juxtaposition of different perspectives and confluences

of understanding our environment and how we live in it: the utilitarian, the intellectual,

the historical, and the mythological. The aim is to think about and use the three R:

Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

The landscape where the MoCAB was built is loaded with a broad mixture of

meanings interconnected through nature and human history. For this lab, I propose

a collection and classification of all kinds of objects, drawings, sounds, notes, etc.,

inspired, found or sketched by the lab participants within the margins of this park.

On the first day and during the first part of the workshop, each participant will be

walking, wandering around the park, and collecting a selection of 5 objects, drawings,

sounds, notes, etc. During the second part of the workshop, we will be researching for

information about them like what kind of objects, materials, plants, remains, sounds,

sketches, etc.., we have found they find or have called our attention, where they were

brought from, their human use, their natural function, their mythological meaning,

and their relationship with other non-human beings. All the information we can find or

think about them.

On the second day of the workshop, we will gather to speak about these found

objects, their background, history, the participants’ experiences, and researches, we

will project the recorded videos, photos taken, etc. We will classify these elements

according to a circular economy based on an exchange of intellectual, cultural,

historical, and natural capital.

The end of the workshop will consist of sharing and exchanging all this information in

a trading system between the participants, which means that there will be a process

of encounters and disencounters through trade and circulation of these objects, their

history, mythology, information, use by humans and other living beings.

In this way, we rethink the way we value all these elements and the experiences we

achieve through active community knowledge. This implies a chance to challenge our

way of understanding our environment and its interconnections in a holistic manner,

in which human beings are just one more element participating in the whole natural

context.

The goal is to activate alternative possibilities of creating a new era of coexistence

between human beings and nature.
