Residensstipendiat i Malmö, 1 oktober – 31 december 2023
Patricia Morosan (born 1984 in Romania / lives and works in Berlin and Athens) is an artist working with photography, text and sound. In her practice she approaches the duality of intimacy and identity. Exploring interdisciplinarity, her artistic work addresses multiple realities and practices that draw on feminist and polycentric traditions. Her practice is often collaborative and participatory and is concerned with ideas and methods of emotional geography, wanderings and ceremonials.
During her IASPIS residency she will continue working on her project and artist book Telepoetics: Practices of intimacy at distance, which experiments with communication methods at a distance. Inspired by Jaques Derrida’s essay “Telepathy”, the project is a hybrid project combining sound recordings, photography, poetic epistolary text, artistic and scientific research on telepathy. Also, during the residency Patricia Morosan will be in contact with Lund Konsthall concerning the program based on her work shown in the exhibition “Ways of Unseeing.”
