Benedikte Esperi, Nina Cholet & Ida Lod
HURLING, 19/9 och 20/9
Meeting place: Johannesplatsen, Göteborg
Time: 6-7 pm (the night continues at 2LÅNG Kvartersscen, Andra långgatan 30)
The interest for creating a contemporary work by looking back through history is the base for HURLING. In this work, hurl becomes a metaphor for the search of traces from the struggle, the oeuvre and the place of women in history, but also in our present time. Here three artists – Esperi, Cholet and Lod – get together, each with a different starting point. The inspiration comes from Louise Michel (1830-1905), a French anarchist and teacher, and Nelly Thüring (1875-1972), a Swedish photographer and politician, among others. The selected site is made in memory of the ”Bread revolt” in Gothenburg in 1917.
