A full day at Köttinspektionen, last official event for the spring!

During the spring, Caroline Byström have had a residence at Köttinspektionen and the 3rd of June she will present her ongoing work ”Past as prologue” (working title) and also show her latest solo ”Mirage”, that premiered in May at Weld in Stockholm. Further there will be a presentation of a previous Lab, that explored different formats for reading and dancing, a collaboration between Köttinspektionen Dans, PO$$E, and invited guests. And we will release “Materials that pull”, a publication that takes off from the 2017 dance program called “Circles”. The publication collects text and images by the artists Marie Gavois, Sophie Erlandsson, Anna-Karin Brus, Caroline Byström and Munish Wadhia, and is designed by Jonas Williamsson. Produced and initiated by Köttinspektionen Dance. Visitors will each receive a copy of the publication.

Excerpt from the introduction to the publication:

”Materials that pull” is a title that points to the possibility that materials have their own agency- that they can pull away and intertwine with other materials, immaterial as well as material.

…Commissioning artistic documentations is a way for us to try out the concept of documentation from a strictly subjective horizon; an artistic horizon. A way to clear the concept from the idea of the objective, the neutral, the pure. Furthermore the publication aims to problematise the singular creative person, and investigate how they are connected with their surroundings, the surrounding materials: the ideas, the relations, the bodies, the objects- that embrace us all in constant movement. Materials that pull, that grab us, find us, connect, undress and perhaps even compost us all in an eternal cycle?”

BARCO TWIN PRODUCTIONS is a context initiated by Dinis Machado (PT/SE) for a parallell development of the solo work MIRAGE by Caroline Byström and CONSUBSTANCIATION by Dinis Machado

CAROLINE BYSTRÖM was born in Daegu, South Korea. She grew up in Örnsköldsvik and lives and works in Stockholm as a choreographer and dancer since she graduated from the masterprogramme in choreography at Stockholm University of the Arts 2014. Herchoreographic work explores a new method in each project, which takes its expression in various forms. She often investigates that which already exists, perhaps as a background, in search for parallel narratives. And her work moves between sound, text and body. Caroline is educated in dance and choreography in Copenhagen, Salzburg, Gießen and Stockholm.

Since 2014, Caroline has been part of Weld company and there performed in works by Julian Weber, Litó Walkey, Georgia Vardarau, Matthias Sperling, Alice Chauchat, Margaretha Åsberg and Rebecka Stillman.
