Artist Talk with They Are Here,
Monday 29th October, 6-8 PM in Residence Botkyrka, Krögarvägen 26.

London based collaborative practice They Are Here, will introduce a series of recent artworks and active projects in the context of permaculture, participatory practice & experience design.

This will include discussing a current landscape design commission in East London to realise a community garden in Dagenham (East London) and their recent performance-work ‘ROUTINE’, that culminated in two nights of live stand–up comedy delivered by a variety of South Londoners from all walks of life, following a series of workshops over two months.

They Are Here (f. 2006) is a collaborative practice steered by Helen Walker and Harun Morrison. Their work spans many types of site, particularly civic locations and contexts. Institutions they have developed or presented work include Camden Arts Centre, CCA Glasgow, Grand Union, Konsthall C, South London Gallery, Studio Voltaire, STUK and Tate Modern.

They Are Here are currently IASPIS grant holders in Stockholm, as well as doing research within the programme of Residence Botkyrka / Botkyrka konsthall.

Artist Talk with Shelley Vanderbyl
Saturday 20th October, 2-4 PM in Residence Botkyrka, Krögarvägen 26.

The Canadian artist Shelley Vanderbyl is visiting Residence Botkyrka and invites us to a talk about her practice that often deals with the nurturing and taking care of others.

In 2017, Shelley exhibited her work Doses of Empathy in the exhibition Övergångar / Transitions that was shown in Botkyrka konsthall. A series of tiny hand painted landscapes in vintage medical tins become portals to other parts of the world. Over the years, the artist has given them away to people who need them, as a pharmacist fills a prescription.

Please also visit the exhibition: Your Pain isn’t a Burden that runs 19-20 October at Detroit Stockholm (Roslagsgatan 21). Here Shelley is presenting works in fresco, oil and acrylic that range from tiny to over 3 metres. In the exhibition, she is responding to situations in her own life and in the lives of others using paint to speak comfort of those experiencing mental hardships.

A collaboration between Residence Botkyrka, AllArtNow, Kultivera Tranås and Detroit Stockholm.
