Sigrids Stue practise, projects and artist in residency – 2019 – 2021
Under the title Art in Between we invite artist to be connected to Sigrids Stues project and practise for a longer periode of time. Together we aim to expand our projects and presence in the local, urban and public space. The collaborating artists for 2019 – 2020 are Carl Fraser GB, Camilla Nørgård DK – and others to come. As an artist and architect Carl Fraser has been working on projects mapping social, cultural and economical structures in gentrified areas. This is also the focus for his work in Gellerup. Camilla Nørgård often use the frase ‘ don’t look forward but look around’ as a starting point for the projects she built up in urban spaces.
One of our ongoing projects is Sigrids UdeStue which we continiously try to expand. It currently intervene in the temporare architecture and urban structure around Karen Blixens Boulevard in the very center of Gellerupparken. Sigrids UdeStue is basically build up around a 2 storey movable container house which funktion as a meeting spot, space for production, artists presentations, pop up cafe and here we also run Sigrids Stues Tegneskole og Byværksted for børn / Drawing school and Out door workshop for children.
Because of the coming building of a new Sports and Culture Campus in Gellerup we had to relocate UdeStuen earlier this year. We have for the last 3 -4 months been working hard to resettle and shape our UdeStue project in a new location that we were offered a bit down the boulevard close to Nordgårdhallen and the relocated E&P Huset.
Currently we working at our new site on ‘Sten, sti, dige’ with Camilla Nørgård – and preparing workshops in Carl Frasers research based mapping project.
