Interviews

April 12, 2018 — Interview Nr 1

Jes Fernie, Independent curator, UK

 

H•G: How do you summarize your curatorial work, overall and for Råängen?

J.F: I work with artists, architects, thinkers, developers, priests, taxi drivers, choirs, farmers, developers and writers to make interesting things happen in public space. I’m interested in an expansive approach to contemporary art and culture that creates opportunities for a broad range of people to think about, get involved in, or just see art in their public realm.

For Råängen this involves working with Lund Cathedral and White Arkitekter on a long term commissioning programme that will establish a foundation for their development in Lund. I’m really excited about the potential for this programme to create a unique blueprint for thinking about urban expansion and the role the art and culture can play in this. Also, I LOVE working in Sweden!

 

H•G: Some words about amazing upcoming “And We Are Everywhere” from your heart?

J.F: When Nathan Coley and I first discussed the idea of presenting the concept for And We Are Everywhere to the representatives from Lund Cathedral, we genuinely had no idea whether they would go for it. It is a bold and potentially contentious work that raises all sorts of interesting, current issues about faith, the Church’s role in society, homelands. It is wonderful to be working with clients who are so committed to ideas and conversation.

 

H•G: What project are you most proud of, and why?

J.F: Recently, I’ve been enjoying working with fiction writers who have written short stories related to commissions or projects I’m curating. For example, Joanna Quinn wrote an incredible story about a scientist living on a boat in a flooded landscape with her daughter, in an apocalyptic near future, for a project called ‘Flood House’ that I worked on last year. It added an incredible dimension to the project – a magical, fictional space opened up, which made me realise the power of narrative in the projects I work on. I’m now working with Holly Corfield Carr on a story about enclosure, family and bad decisions. Loving it!

 

H•G: Future dream project?

J.F: Spending so much time in Sweden over the last year and half has led me to dream about working more there. In a parallel universe, I live in one of those gorgeous, smooth pull-out draws at the Skissernas Museum in Lund. I get to sneak around at night with a flash torch, whispering to the ghosts of artists long dead and creating scurrilous connections between the work of those still living.

 

H•G: Best exhibition/most interesting artist right now?

J.F: I’ve just discovered Lisa Brice’s work in the Art Now room at Tate Britain. She messes with Degas, Picasso, Manet, and directly responds to two paintings in the Tate collection by William Rothenstein and John Everett Millais. Limp, passive, lugubrious women become active, weird sexy and BLUE (a reference to the Blue Devil in Trinidadian carnival). I reckon Angela Carter would have LOVED this show.
