CoSA - Concerning The Spiritual in art
Concerning the Spiritual in Art (CoSA) is a collaboration between the artists Thale Fastvold and Tanja Thorjussen (LOCUS) and Inger-Reidun Olsen and Marianne Skjeldal (LATERNA). Through our various artistic praxis in photography, drawing, performance and dance we seek to investigate the spiritual. Through art projects, residencies and study trips we will channel the spiritual in art that was so important for the modernist movement 100 years ago, and which is resurfacing today in contemporary art and praxis. Our first journey together will take us to Monte Veritá in Switzerland and Athens in Greece spring 2017. The project will result in exhibitions, performances and a book about the project published by LOCUS publishing.
LATERNA, are Inger-Reidun Olsen and Marianne Skjeldal, both choreographers and performers, coming from a dance background, but now working in various formats within performance dealing with materials, objects, sound and actions in relation to artistic research, performative and spiritual practices.
