Tina Carlisi

Artist and researcher

tina_carlisi_imagination
I am an artist from Montréal, Canada, where I am pursuing a practice-based doctorate in Fine Arts.
My research examines ideas and practices linked to the radical imagination and is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. My art practice is deeply rooted in the notion of the imaginary.
Working mainly through print and spatial gestures, I insist on minimalist forms and I am driven by a constant search for the poetic in the political and the political in the poetic.

While in residency at CRIR, my aim is to research Solvognen, a political action theatre collective active from 1969 to 1983.
Many members of the collective moved to Christiania in the early seventies. I am interested in learning about Solvognen’s relationship to Christiania and how the troupe’s prefigurative practices reflected a historical moment when people saw the possibility to reimagine a world they wished to live in.
I am particularly interested in how this may have resonance and dissonance in our contemporary moment. My aim during the residency is to develop an artistic bookwork from my research to contribute to the dissemination of this remarkable time of artistic expression not well-known outside of Denmark.

Jeff Silvertrust

Jazz Musician



I have played with the Christiania Band Big during the period of Jens Block as the coordinator
and have participated and have performed at the Christiania Jazz club thru the years and during the jazz festival
(including other events there thru the period of 1984 thru 2010)
and have played a few times voluntarily within the vicinity of pusher street at difficult times when the government has tried to control and put away the Christiania freedom of expression etc.
I would be very happy to return again after many years and participate in the activities of the remaining jazz club
and be of any use to anyone interested to employ my one man band for whatever events that may be happening during my stay.

curator and researcher

Eva Lin

The aim while in residency at CRIR is to sharpen my research about Art intervention into the reality which I phrase as Art Remedy. N
ot as a therapeutic technique in the field of art and psychotherapy but more about a creative value of expression, Art Remedy tends to control the damage and reform the order in the reality life through way of thinking in Art.
The practical approach of Art Remedy driven from an non-obligational mission, generate power and consensus to against the unbalanced in any sort of form.
Without practical profits and boundaries, many actions and works not created by so-called artists are even closer to the core value of art.

I feel Christiania with the respect for diversity will be one of the authentic collecting examples for that. What matters most could be just the way of thinking at the end.

"There is no place like home" - people say,
but what does that mean?"

There is no place like home, people say, but what does that mean? Can we explain home or do we have to experience it in order to understand? But to experience what: rootedness, belonging, dwelling or grounding, or maybe loss?

I am anthropologist based in Edinburgh writing a PhD about a concept of home, sense of be/longing; I am interested in how people experience home(s), remember them, and dream about them.

Based on my ethnography (Lithuanians in Scotland) I am exploring how migrants understand and practice home; how ideas of imaginary home, restlessness, that is very much a force to keep trying in creating and practicing home, and actuality of life, that requires social, cultural and emotional constant adaptation, interweave.

This thesis is about home(s) within a context of migration, but the decision of my interlocutors to move to another country was always a voluntary one, though very often people would say ‘there was no other option’. Moving from one location to the other is usually about hope, about a ‘better’ life, and, finally, about the opportunity to create new home.

Migration from Eastern Europe to the West usually falls into the category of economic migration; however, I am not limiting myself to this explanation. I see migration as a complex matter, which involves economy, politics, personal development, independence, freedom, adventure, and very much notions of an existential being-at-home (or not).
Such a phenomenological take moves from an understanding of home as a geographical place, to home as an interaction between humans’ inner and outer worlds. It is not that people do not feel at home in places, but it is circumstanced by personal meanings, which are within broader contexts. Through combination of narratives about emerging lived reality, and intimate understandings of being-at-home and experiencing, practicing home(s), I aim to understand how acceptance of a spiritual ‘homelessness’ becomes an action of ‘coming home’.

While I am in Christiania I am eager to figure out more about the role of community while one is creating one's home, and how utopian ideas and everyday duties are mixed, how opting for living ‘differently' is practiced here and now, moreover, I am interested in how people adapt their dreams to the circumstances, but at the same time, how those dreams create an opportunity to experience a personal vision.

Tiina Arjukka Hirvonen

artist

My aim for the residency period is to develop my artist practice, stemming both from visual arts and dance & movement disciplines.
In Christiania, my research starts from my curiosity towards the free town's sensory constructions. What sort of sensory information the free town environment carries, and how does it's citizens relate to it - how is this information present? I'm interested in the symbiotic relationship between man and its environment, especially the cross section where these two overlap each other, and in this case, exploring how this relationship is present in Christiania.
I find the idea of sensory architecture fascinating - how do we, as physical beings in space, construct our surroundings through sensory perception, and how do our surroundings shape us in return. What kind of internal and external wirings are in play in our perception of a place?
