Borbala's visit

Associate Studio Programme 6 : Borbala Soos

Having visited the Associates before, Borbála was familiar with the tradition of bringing an object to the space as a way to begin the discussion. This time she brought a giant seashell that has previously served as a starting point for curatorial projects. The theme of using an object as a starting point and perhaps a collaborator informed the discussions, especially when talking about a project centering around the moon by Lucie and myself. We talked about notions of unlearning, and how an object can become a holding space for something. Borbála’s most recent projects have involved working with communities, which also spurred on questions of how our collaboration with Lucie could be opened up to other artists, in forms of celebration, and how the work can be translated into other spaces. The notion of translatability also echoed in the discussion of Carmen’s work as we talked about frustration of language and how that can be used as a tool for creating layers and bridges between ideas. Borbála also offered some brilliant references for the whole group, as well as advice to getting our work seen. Anastasia Alekseeva
