The Roaming Institute, Session 5: Natalia Rebelo
26 August 2017, 16:00–17:00
As part of the program for the exhibition The Promise at Index, participants of the course Modernist Legacies and Constructions of Whiteness (Kungl. Konsthögskolan, 2016–2017) present a project titled The Roaming Institute.
The Roaming Institute consists of a series of walks through the city which continue the research of the course, reflecting on the traces of modernist architecture and urban planning in Stockholm, and its entanglement with normative concepts of subjectivity. The walks invite the audience to discover new perspectives of the city and its surroundings and opening discussions about some of the unfulfilled promises of modernism.
Each of the 6 sessions is conceived around a specific topic and led by different participants from the course, or in conversation with invited guests. The walks will take place on weekly, every Saturday from 29 July to 2 September. Start of the walks is, unless otherwise mentioned, at Index, Kungsbro Strand 19.
Session 5: Natalia Rebelo, Eye-rolling
Meeting point: National Library of Sweden, in Östermalmstorg, by the door with Selma Lagerlöf’s picture printed on it
Duration: 30 min
Eye-rolling is a walk taking place in the National Library of Sweden. The conversations of the walk will address rage as opposite to guilt. Such uneasiness can serve as a platform for guilt, but its transformation into rage brings forth interesting dimensions the conversations will comment on. Selma Lagerlöf’s portrait is a personal place for the artist to feel at home.
We will start at the door with Selma Lagerlöf’s portrait and continue the walk around the library area. A sound piece is played during the walk.
Natalia Rebelo (b. São Paulo, Brazil) is a Stockholm based artist. She works with different media such as video, performances, objects, sound, prints and text.
