Ásrún Mjöll & Berglind Erna

Ásrún Mjöll og Berglind Erna hafa starfað saman um árabil, staðið að gjörningum og tekið að sér ýmis verkefni. Berglind Erna er myndlistarmaður, textasmiður, þýðandi og kennari. Ásrún Mjöll er húsasmiður, sjúkraflutningakona og sveitastjórnarfulltrúi sem stundar mastersnám í mannfræði.

Berglind og Ásrún hafa þekkst í hartnær 20 ár og hafa leiðir þeirra fléttast saman á ýmsan hátt í áranna rás. Þær hafa brallað ýmislegt saman í gegnum tíðina; héldu saman á vit ævintýranna til Mið-Ameríku, þar sem þær lögðust í ítarlegar mannfræði- og matarmenningarrannsóknir. Þær hafa báðar ástríðufullan áhuga á ást og málefnum hjartans og því lá beinast við að þær ferðuðust saman til Mexíkó í leit að týndri uppskrift forns ástarsúkkulaðiseiðs. Nýlega gerðu þær sér svo ferð til Parísar, borgar ástarinnar, til að glöggva sig á margbreytilegu tilhugalífi franskra ungmenna, svo fátt eitt sé nefnt. Á öllum sínum ferðalögum, saman og í sundur, hafa þær lagt áherslu á að nýta sér bréfaskriftir, hvar sem þær eru staddar í heiminum, og hafa þannig haldið sambandi við hvora aðra og ástvini.

Venus Jasper

Venus Jasper (they/he) creates participatory performances, immersive and sensuous installations, music, and stories, all to forward ontological entanglements that provide space for (queer) embodiment and new stories of kinship and belonging with the natural world. Their projects activate the somatic intersections between ‘nature’, spirituality, magic, cultural identity, activism, queerness, and community. In their recent works, Jasper often operates as a hybrid between a nature priest and a sassy musician, immersing audiences in stories and multi-sensorial installations and highly detailed and handcrafted exhibitions that connect the folkloric world of the druids and nature spirits with the glamour of music concerts and modern ritual get-togethers.

They initiated a research project around Wetland Worship, focusing on swamps, bogs and fens, and other murky wetlands that are historically and currently drained and misused. In European myth and folklore, these liminal and often inaccessible zones are the terrain of elves, trolls, and other murky, semi-submerged entities and forgotten goddesses. In their latest show at Rupert, Vilnius, Venus presented a site-specific art installation in the form of a sacred indoor swamp, Murky Medicine Swamp (2023), which offered room for the ritual spoken-word song performance OAKBaLLZ and EELskin (Murky Murky, Little Bitch Witch) in which Jasper channeled the anger of the abandoned, marginal, dumped-upon, and drained wetlands. These works, wherein ecological and environmental alarms are lensed through the decline of storied belonging with the earth, aim to re-awaken our emotional and transformative kinship with the world.

Based in the Netherlands, Venus Jasper obtained an MFA from the Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam, in 2013. They made certified explorations of Somatic Psychotherapy, Reiki Healing, Music Production, Permaculture Design, Natural Building, and Speculative Writing. They are co-curator for RE_NATURE manifestation. Internationally they’ve shown at Rupert (LT), MuHKA(BE), Tidens Krav (NO), Grünerløkka Kunsthall (NO), OPYUM Festival (FR), Art Villa Garikula (GE), Gallery D.O.R. (BE), The Manse (USA), Te Whare Toi (NZ). In the Netherlands at MU — Hybrid Arthouse, Goethe Institute Rotterdam, Garage Rotterdam, Lustwarande, TENT, MELLY, Onomatopee, Het Nieuwe Instituut, Mediamatic, IMPAKT, W139, 1646 The Hague, and Kunsthuis SYB, amongst others.

Bea Xu

Bea Xu (they/she/it) is a Chinese-British psychic worker experimenting with reality production. Using collaborative play, speculative fiction and therapeutic intervention they design and means-test integral, post-Anthropocenic cosmologies with live participants and fellow accomplices. Often foregrounding blood magic, decolonised time and non-binary logic with an EcoGothic focus, their work engages with archetypal shadow and is informed by their training as an integrative, trans-personal psychotherapist.

They are a part of Long Distance Residency project, where the group will travel by ecological means to exhibit at LungA.

Niamh Schmidtke

Niamh Schmidtke (she/they) explores the political complications of ‘being green’ by cultivating conversations with the environment, through speculation, audio, ceramics and installations. They examine the relationship between listening and speaking, to consider the kinds of voices that deep time, the sea, or humans could have. These relations critique the utopia of renewable energies, drawing attention to the financial origins of climate crises and use intimacy as a form of decolonise praxis for the future.

Niamh co-produces the radio show Future Artefacts FM, with artist Nina Davies and are currently working on commissions for Science Gallery International in Berlin, and the Hunt Museum in Ireland. They completed their MFA at Goldsmiths, London with a First Class Honours in 2021 and hold a Fine Art Honours BA from Limerick School of Art and Design (2019).

Radek Przedpełski

Radek Przedpełski (pronounced: rah-deck pshet-pe-oo-skee), (he/him) is a migrant artist-philosopher lecturing in interactive digital media at Trinity College Dublin. Radek's artistic practice revolves around entanglements between the earth, the cosmos, and sustainable artistic techniques. Radek's environments and low-bandwidth video works seek to create a resonant milieu—a site of incantation and speculative world-building inspired by ecologies of the Outer Carpathian Mountains and Éire. Radek graduated from Trinity College Dublin with a PhD in Digital Art and Humanities, focusing on Polish neo-avant-garde of the 1970s.

Radek co-edited a volume on Deleuze, Guattari and the Art of Multiplicity published by Edinburgh University Press in 2020. He is a member of Substantial Motion Research Network founded by Laura U. Marks and Azadeh Emadi for cross-cultural investigation of media art, as well as a curator, together with Laura U. Marks, of the annual Small File Media Festival hosted by the School for the Creative Arts at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver.

He is a part of Long Distance Residency project, where the group will travel by ecological means to exhibit at LungA.
