The Seminar Beyond the Object

3 June 2018 10.00 am–5.00 pm


Welcome to the peer-to-peer-based seminar Beyond the Object, which offers presentations, performances and film screenings as well as artist talks in the exhibition and an interdisciplinary conversation, all by international, Nordic and Sweden-based artists, curators and researchers with clay-based practices at Uppsala Art Museum.


Clare Twomey (UK), researcher, curator and renowned artist recognised for her large-scale, site specific installations, Phoebe Cummings (UK) who comes from a younger generation artists working with ephemeral raw clay still-life, the nine artists and three curators of the exhibition, as well as invited guests, such as artist and clay master Matilda Haggärde (SE) and PhD in Quaternary Geology Magnus Hellqvist (SE).


Two live performances will be carried out, one by artist Matilda Haritz Svenson & acrobat Signe Veinholt (SE) who will enact the piece Koreografi för föremål/Choreography for Objects together and artist Christin Johansson (SE/DK) performs the piece Her Porcelain Chapel in serenity parallel to the entire event. A presentation of the film Känslan av att leran ligger fast/I rely on the clay being solid by artist Pernilla Norrman (SE) is also part of the day and describes her relation to the red clay from a small abandoned brickyard which Norrman digs up and uses directly from the ground. The clay reflects the brickyard heritage in the region.


Pre-registrations are accepted until May 29 by email to: konstmuseum@uppsala.se. Limited seats, a first come, first serve principle is applied. A 150 SEK fee is charged on site, students attend free of charge. There are trains and buses running to Uppsala from Stockholm and surroundings, and also from towns like Gävle, and the region of Dalarna that run on Sunday morning in time for the seminar. If you travel from an another Nordic country or further, we do recommend you travelling the day before to make sure to be on time for the seminar and to enjoy the opening of the exhibition Beyond the Object, which has its opening on June 2 at 12.00–16.00 at Uppsala Art Museum, and the museum is open to midnight on this very day.
