HÉR! Of curation in the act


  • Halla Steinunn Stefansdottir

Summary, in English

This presentation looks at the curatorial practice within my PhD project titled HÉR! An explora- tion of artistic agency. The project is designed to look at situated actions through a row of case studies that link to my role as performer, composer and curator within contemporary music and sound art. The curation has spanned various processes, such as the concert event, the act of stu- dio recording, album creation, participatory sense-making between composer and performer, as well as a row of multi-channel sound installations. A common denominator between the studies is curation as activation of processes, as well as curation informed by an ecological-enactive perspective. This presentation is therefore foreseen to link to multi-entity performance (Rawlings, 2019; Stefánsdóttir, 2019), spatial practices and bodily poiesis of relation.
