Poziv za učešće  

Zones of (dis)comfort: Spatial Hypersensitivities zamišljena je kao proces otvorenog istraživanja/prakse. Nastavak je dvogdišnjeg istraživanja tokom master studija scenografa Nemanja Čađe. U širem smislu, jedna od osovina ove studije jeste odnos tela i prostora kroz zonu udobnosti kao prostornu strategiju. Ovaj pojam se koristi kao model za suočavanje sa ličnim sećanjima, iskustvima ili osećanjima u kontekstu određenog prostora, tj. kako lične i intimne posledičnosti mogu reartikulisati ili na drugačiji način uokviriti predmetni prostor. Preciznije, ovaj istraživački kurs kao otvorena praksa će se razvijati propitivanjem ne samo zone udobnosti već ulaženjem i u prostore ne/udobnosti. Fokus će biti na situiranju/pozicioniranju ličnih iskustava i osećanja ne/udobnosti u određenom prostoru sa ciljem da se postigne dijalog između različitih autonomija kao što su prostorne ili telesne posledičnosti.

Arhitektica i istraživačica Danica Selem pridružiće se Nemanji u beogradskom izdanju radionice koja će biti održana u Kulturnom centru Magacin. Danica kroz svoju praksu razmatra načine na koje prostor oblikuje naše fizičko, socijalno i emotivno telo i svakodnevno ponašanje kroz koncept “prostorne žrtve”. Ovaj koncept razvila je kroz svoje istraživanje i performans sa grupom “Bodies Intersect Buildings”.

Nemanja je radionice o pojmu zone udobnosti realizvao sa studentima i profesionalcima na različitim mestima: Banja Luka (Bosna i Hercegovina), Zagreb (Hrvatska), Fredrikstad (Norveška), Oslo (Norveška). Danica je vodila radionice i otvorene prakse velikih razmera na IPADÉ – A Prelude to the Shed (Nju Jork), Pioneer Works Gallery (Nju Jork) i Cornell University (Itaka, Nju Jork) između ostalih.

Rezultati radionice biće predstavljeni na izložbi “Tišina je ovde gluvoća” u galeriji Podroom u Kulturnom centru Beograda.

Invitation to participate  

Zones of (dis)comfort: Spatial Hypersensitivities is imagined as an open research process/practice. It is an extension of a two year long exploration during master studies of scenographer Nemanja Čađo. One of the cores of this study, in its wider sense, is a relationship between body and space through spatial strategy of comfort zone. This notion is used as a model for dealing with personal memories, experiences of feelings in terms of specific space, ei how those individual and intimate repercussions can rearticulate or reframe subject place. More specific, this research course as open practice will move forward with questioning not only the zone of comfort but entering into areas of discomfort. Focus will be on situatedness of personal experiences and feelings of (dis)comfort in certain space with the aim towards zone of negotiation between different autonomies such as spatial or body “consequentialities”.

Architect and researcher Danica Selem will join Nemanja in the Belgrade edition of the workshop that will be held in Cultural center Magacin. Danica’s practice considers ways in which space shapes our physical, social and emotional bodies and behaviors in everyday life through the concept of spatial victim. The concept was developed with her research and performance group Bodies Intersect Buildings.

Nemanja made workshops on the notion of comfort zone with students and professionals in different places: Banja Luka (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Zagreb (Croatia), Fredrikstad (Norway), Oslo (Norway). Danica hosted workshops and large scale open practices at IPADÉ – A Prelude to the Shed (NYC), Pioneer Works Gallery (NYC) and Cornell University (Ithaca, NY) among others.

The results will be presented at the exhibition “Silence is deafness here” in Podroom Gallery (Cultural Centre of Belgrade).

Danica Selem

Danica Selem is an architect, educator researcher and performance artist. She is a founder of Bodies Intersect Buildings, a performance and research practice working between Europe and the United States. Selem’s largest work to date is the result of a public competition for the Park Kata Šoljić in Zagreb, with Marija Horvat and Dora Jerbić. The project was realized in 2016, while Selem was completing her undergraduate studies. Further, her work has been shown at IPADÉ – A Prelude to the Shed, Pioneer Works Gallery, Dixon Place Theater, JACK, Cherry Lane Theater, Cabinet, and many others.

Nemanja Čađo

Nemanja Čađo is an artist, architect, scenographer and researcher working within the fields of extended scenography, body movement experiments and sensorial investigations. Interested in the relations between scenography and choreography he is questioning how spatial potentials and narratives can be rearticulated through corporeal constellations with its memories and histories. In his artistic approach he is examining more what scenography could be rather than what scenography is. The exploration of what else scenography can be articulated itself in several directions. One is about delving through and working mostly with the mediums such as video, sound and light. And another one is based around workshop, as research model, about notion of “comfort zone”, its political, cultural, social and other determinants and narratives. (This workshop model gains certain kind of archive from different contexts which is the core of Nemanja’s sensorial investigations.)

Nemanja holds MA degree in scenography from Norwegian Theatre Academy, Østfold University College in Norway and BA degree in architecture from Faculty of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy, University of Banja Luka (Bosnia&Herzegovina).
Currently lives and work in Norway.
