About the event
Celebrating our 10th anniversary in 2023 and the opening of our new studio, we want to offer four residencies between March and June to different artists or artist groups. The residencies include one week, Monday to Friday from 12:00-17:00, of free workspace in PRAXIS Oslo’s 100 sqm studio space in Rosenhoff, ending with an open sharing on the last day.
Dance Artist Emma Öberg will share her residency work in a workshop format.
There is free access to the workshop, but registration is required.

As a dance artist I explore ways I can reconnect myself to my balinese roots by placing myself in (or create) contexts outside of balinese tradition and culture. This way I can investigate my relation to my own identity and my balinese heritage, and the connection they have. I often turn to the past - trying to include it in the present, smudging the timeline of my own life. Nostalgia and memory are central points in my work.
I describe my practice as being rooted in the balinese philosophy of sekala and niskala. It can be translated to "the seen and unseen", and proposes that the spiritual world and the substantial world intertwine. My practice focuses on the intertwining - mind and matter, the substantial and non-substantial, form and feeling. I am always exploring through the lens of being inside and outside the body at once - trying to find a place beyond the binary.
During my residency with PRAXIS Oslo I will be working on developing methods for my project "Vi ser sjön". In this work I explore summer memories of my own childhood and how time can be a driving force for change. What happens when time stands still and you have to take matters into your own hands? Just like those long, never ending summer days as a child, where boredom turned into fantasy and play.
At the end of the week I invite everyone to take part of this process in a workshop format. I will share my findings and we will try things out and explore together!
