Woven Network Nordics (2021-2022)
 

9 months artist-in-residence & Exhibitions & Performances & Artist talks & Remote digitally

 

EUROPE: How can artists cope with the precarious working conditions as an already underprivileged group during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Woven Network Nordics was an European project that highlighted voices of women within urban spaces across three Nordic countries and examined women's experience as central to the European response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the course of nine months four artists from Sweden, Denmark and Norway took part in a dynamic online residency to deliver presentations, conversations, a digital exhibition and also a physical exhibition in Stockholm. The Woven Network Nordic artists were Brynhild Bye-Tiller (NO), Dina Abu Hamdan (DK/JO), Emma Hirsk (SE/IE), and Katarzyna Piórek (SE/PL), and project manager Alice Máselníková (SE/CZ), visual artist and curator.

Across a broad spectrum of rich and diverse creative praxis, subject expertise, and cultural heritages, all four of the Woven Network Nordic artists explored and showcased the potentialities of interdisciplinary, inclusive, and socially engaged artistic and digital practices, creating a safe space of support, solidarity, and collaboration for female artists across Europe. The pandemic brought into sharp focus the precarious situation faced by artists, cultural workers and women in essential socio-economic roles. On a broader scale the project reflected women's roles that are currently undervalued and underpaid, with women under-represented politically, socially and economically. The artists had also a self-reflective role since artists represent one of the sectors most impacted by the pandemic.

The Nordic artists collaborated with artists in partner countries in a virtual space, sharing ideas, stories and materials with each other and creating an inclusive, multi-disciplinary residency. The artworks created by the commissioned artists will highlight women's varied and pivotal roles – from frontline sectors like health and education, to women's care burdens within their own families.
