Spanish artist Maria Jerez invited 5 fellow artists – Saša Božić, Hrvoje Hiršl, Adriana Josipović, Vedrana Klepica and Tea Tupajić- who are currently working on their own projects (whether they are at the beginning, the middle or the end) to take part in her workshop called Let’s share references. Each artist is invited to share his or her own sources of inspiration for their work (reading, conversing, surfing the internet) and reveal to others the sources of inspiration he or she likes to use (books, movies, images, articles…). By this disclosing of the artistic process the artist allows and even invites the other participants and the public to interfere with his/her process of artistic research in the form of collective participation in the process. 

This means that:

reading a book  becomes a group  reading;

watching a film becomes a cinema club;

reading an article becomes a public lecture;

having a conversation with a friend about individual artistic processes  becomes parallel residencies

looking for information on the internet becomes a radio show based on interviews

 

The objectives of doing so are:

 to create a community;

to create content with other people;

to interfere with the work of others and to let others interfere with your work;

to create unexpected encounters;

to enrich relationships and work;

to contaminate each other;

to create our own inputs;

to break barriers in-between people (to ask a person whose work you are using to come and give a lecture instead of reading an article while this person stays invisible  to you,  and you stay invisible  to them).

The working group would like to invite the public to join their working sessions and meddle in, intervene or simply attend this collective artistic research throughout the duration of the workshop, September 13 to 15, from 20:00 to 22:30h at Polukružna &TD.

For a while I wanted to do everything, to be: an architect, a builder, a teacher, a cook, a prostitute, an astronaut, a secret agent, a sailor… so I decided to do something where I could be all of them at the same time. ( Maria Jerez)
