BLOD - Collaborators

Swedish Research Council

Symposium on Artistic Research

Online conference 25-26 Nov 2020


SKH Research Week

Online conference 19-22 Jan 2021


The project’s practical artistic exploration of collaboration was presented through a documentation of a streamed live performance followed by an introduction to the project and then a Q&A.

The 18 min video documentation is of a reading of the play Collaborators in front of a projection of the film* in the film BLOD. (*Ashes to Ashes, Blood to Blood)

The play is written from scenes and dialogue between the filmmakers in the feature version of BLOD – written scenes that have been transformed through the process of filming and editing are now being re-written for the stage based on their edited versions – in an ongoing loop where embodied experiences become text that is filmed, and the film becomes script for embodied experiences on stage.

An opportunity to engage with BLOD materials, concepts and alternate compositions. 


BLOD - the feature film available to screen by registered participants. 

(s)mash-up focuses on compositional challenges ranging from political aspects of storytelling based on intimate and personal experience to ethical considerations in the shifts of meaning involved in recontextualizing content.  


Questions:

  1. What in a clip or a whole clip got you going? Do you know why?
  2. How did you associate? How did you make connections between materials?
  3. What did you cut on? What was your bridge between cuts? Image objects, words, colors/light, movement, narrative etc.
  4. Did you bridge by opposition or continuity?

BLOD(y) is an exposition of the work processes of BLOD – a research and film project trying to go beyond norms when it comes to content, aesthetics and modes of collaboration in cinematic storytelling. 

The Open Space exhibit features the film, its source materials in different forms, works in various degrees of progress and scheduled talks on related topics. 

 

The project is exploring collaboration across professions, between friendship and the collegial and beyond academic positions – alternating writing, filming, editing – a liquid and blurred line between life and art. Working on BLOD, all hands-on artistic processes are taken on jointly and uncompromisingly, while challenging power hierarchies, artist myths and traditional cinema’s demand for naturalism and narrative logic in both imagery and mise-en-scene. 

 

The film BLOD revolves around female bleeding from cradle to grave, but is not all about liquids. It also examines emotional swells in the wake of the blood – between people when bodies fail. The film events where modes of creating, key issues and artistic ambition are embodied, are based on experiences of being human with brains, heart and uterus.

WHAT DOES A GROUP OF WOMEN LOOK LIKE?

Do you want to be an extra in a PhD-project in film?

BLOD is a research project in film based on experiences with womb related events.


 

Annika & Kersti play all the parts but sometimes they’re part of a group that should be perceived as in sync with what the world actually looks like.

 

We’re looking for you who want to contribute to this group’s looking like a cross-section of the women of the world

in functionality, gender expression, skin tone,

body type, age…




Group scenes against green-screen:

 

A rave – we dance away!

A blood rite – we celebrate menstruation!

A dinner – with gynecological instruments!

A band - we play gynecological instruments!

A procession - we stride in formations!

  

Do one evening or both. You don’t need training in dance or theater,but we like so see a picture of you so that we can put this group together.


Pay: 

We provide food when you arrive, fruit and water through the evening and of course you'll get invitations to future screenings. While we wait for external financing this is undfortunately what we can offer at this time.

 


What to wear:

We have costumes (a kind of dressy gowns) that can be worn

as they are or over regular clothes - pants/tights and t-shirt/tanktop/bra.
