Open Forum is a student run initiative from the Academy of Fine Art in Oslo that runs at Khartoum Contemporary Art Center (KCAC) every Monday night. Open Forum seeks to create a meaningful exchange of ideas and a dynamic space for dialogue and debate between art students, artists and others working across disciplines. The talks are structured around different topics, from those closer to artistic and curatorial practices to others of social and political relevance. After the presentations we offer soup and a chance to discuss more informally.

Antenna no.2 Called to Connection / Patricia Vane

Working as a receptor, the 𝘼𝙉𝙏𝙀𝙉𝙉𝘼 attempts to reach, grasp and transmit voices from one locality to another. We asked the artist Patricia Vane to share parts of her practice with us through an act of reciprocation, dependent on interchange and trust by their frequency transmitted from Gothenburg, amplified by us in Oslo

A call to dare to live closer in a whole community, connected from heart to heart.

This call offers a perspective on how, wherever you are, you can deepen your connection with those and that you relate to, how you can become aware of the opportunities where to connect on a more intimate and deeper level. Through providing practical tools in a shift of perception, Called To Connection embarks on new ways of being together and new spaces to meet, applicable in whatever situation you are in now and with the ones around you.

This is an artwork that opens up a possibility to follow the poetics of daily life and may empower your sense of being in a fellowship. So the artwork serves as a guide proposing how you can live from a different position with the ones around you, after having listened to the call.

𝙋𝙖𝙩𝙧𝙞𝙘𝙞𝙖 𝙑𝙖𝙣𝙚 born in the Netherlands and then, three years ago, she answered to a rather irrational calling to sacrifice her cherished life in her home country to move herself to Gothenburg, as being destined. Here she is tightly cleaved and passionately and proudly part of Skogen and Konstepidemin.
She developed in depth her (re)search to the heart by unravelling the power of community in a MA Contemporary Performative Arts, and after graduation she combined it with her earlier background in design in her recently born Arborea Studios.
