Artist Talk with Tabita Rezaire + Toke Bykkeberg

Plus one & ALT_CPH presents an Artist Talk with Tabita Rezaire + Toke Lykkeberg at Fabrikken for Kunst og Design.

Tabita Rezaire (b. 1989 Paris, France) is a video artist-researcher-healer based in Cayenne, French Guyana. She holds a Bachelor in Economics (Paris, France) and a Master in Art Moving Image from Central Saint Martins College (London, UK). Rezaire’s diverse practice explores the possibilities of de-colonial healing through politics of technology. Expanding fields of scientific knowledge, her work tackles the pervasive matrix of coloniality - online and offline - and its affects on identity, technology, sexuality, health and spirituality. Through the use of screen interfaces, Rezaire’s digital healing activism offers alternative readings to the dominant narratives decentering occidental authority. While her energy streams remind us to resist, (re)connect, and nourish our soul.

Toke Lykkeberg (b. 1977) is a Danish art critic, writer, freelance curator, and as of August 2017, the artistic director of Tranen - Exhibition Space for Contemporary Art. Lykkeberg is the former director of the exhibition space IMO in Copenhagen, as well as a longtime writer and critic for Danish newspapers Information and Børsen. Lykkeberg has curated various exhibitions in Denmark, Holland, USA, France and Vietnam. Most recently he has been notable as curator of the exhibitions ‘Welcome To Late’ at Kunsthal Charlottenborg (Copenhagen), ‘Citizen X – Human, nature and robot rights’ at Øregaard Museum (Copenhagen), and co-curator of ‘Ex Situ. Samples of Lifeforms’ at Copenhagen Contemporary (Copenhagen). Lykkeberg was also co-curator at the 8th edition of Momentum - the Nordic Biennale for Contemporary Art (Moss, Norway).

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+1 are artist talks at the Department of Arts and Culture Studies at the University of Copenhagen. An artist is invited together with a conversation partner of the artist’s own choice. Hence the name: ‘+1’.

The ambition of +1 is to create space for exploring artistic practices through conversation.
