Artists-In-Residence: Jen Rosenblit, Gary Wilmes, and Simone Aughterlony
n this short residency Jen Rosenblit and Gary Wilmes are invited to begin research towards a performance project initiated by Simone Aughterlony, titled Remaining Strangers. Pursuing our conceptions and affections of and for 'the stranger', this research takes emphasis on hospitality and endurance as it relates to locality and the necessity in times of hyper globalization to, in a sense, land back on earth. What would coming back to earth mean? How can we readopt the notion of locality, wherever that may be at any one time, beyond ideas of nationalism, borders, entitlement and ownership. In short, how can we ground ourselves in the local rather than in pursuit of a globalized future that can clearly only sustain the privileged few. Seeking to complicate the distinction between the guest—host relation through the proximity of bodies and sharing of ideas and materials, we recover a temporary and liminal place that spans and simultaneously blurs distinctions between Foreign, Other, Stranger, and Community. Reactionary positioning of the unknown or the foreign tells us it remains a crucial moment to begin countering the polemic of hostility by investing in the disappearing practice of invitation and welcoming. It is an instinctual phenomenon of humans to be in movement, that is, to enter into a modus that necessarily entails becoming a stranger or at the least becoming estranged/unfamiliar. How do we sense and foster the dimension of strange in each other, in the fundamental experience of not being at home in the world? The stranger here becomes the milieu between the non-milieu of the nameless and the lieu of the named. Other figures might appear during a stay at the Invisible Dog Art Center. The chameleon is definitely invited to keep us guessing and sourcing from all that lies on the ground. Monologues could form and the give way to impromptu dialogue, conjectures and departures. This process lingers in a continuous sympoetic relation to and with others, understanding that nothing can be made or destroyed by itself
