CORNERS of Europe: Kosovo
8th August - 16th August
3 years after an earlier Balkan Xpedition visited Kosovo, CORNERS will return to the place that acted as a great inspiration to present three international co-creations.
3 CORNERS projects will be presented in Prizren from 8th to 16th of August 2015 as part of the fourteenth edition of DokuFest. After the successful premiere of the project in Haninge, Sweden, Newcastle based artist Lalya Gaye, together with two other CORNERS artists, will present Oh My Home in Kosovo.
CORNERS projects to be presented:
Oh My Home - Lost & Found
Artists: Ixone Ormaetxe, Lalya Gaye, Saadia Hussain
Oh My Home explores the feeling of home through public space installations and series of workshops which address notions of borders and belonging, identity and rejection, roots and mobility. Providing a take on the domestic, the migrant and the contested, Oh My Home is an essential project to the fourteenth edition of DokuFest, which explores migration as its central theme.
Artists: Borja Ruiz, Kajsa Sandström, Nils Personne, Primož Bezjak, ŠKART Dragan Protic & Djordje Balmazovic
Papyrint is an opportunity for children to share skills and create a performance together. The CORNERS artists from various disciplines run workshops to help children experiment with different forms of expression including paper-theatre, music, movement and poetry.
Artists: Maciej Salamon, Nedyalko Delchev
This project puts the traditional gallery in a box, sometimes a box as small as a birdhouse. The project aims to develop a new form of art appreciation inspired by co-creation. Audiences are encouraged to use their imagination in creating their own gallery in a box during Birdhouse Gallery workshops.
