ABOUT THE WORK
CALLS FOR CURATION
During CALL FOR CURATION, Felizitas takes us on her personal and intimate journey of encounters with inspiring people, and a lot of (shared) confusion about the possibilities or borders of intuitive curating, via her perception. For the artist, curating signifies a social practice ruled by interaction and intuition. During her time in India, the artist began to record herself and found that speaking her impressions and experiences out loud was the best way to stay connected with herself. The narration turned into an oral transmission, created in the interaction of thoughts, within the specific moment of alliance. Meeting different artists and activists initiated a snowball effect of interaction which continues.
