In May 2015 Julia Calver will be IASPIS fellow hosted by Galleri Box and based in Konstepidemin.
Julia will use the residency to produce new writing. In November 2014 she co-curated the art writing event Nearly and Nervous Nearly and Now, hosted at Galleri Box, with Esmeralda Valencia Lindström. The event was supported by Arts Council England and the British Council; the City of Gothenburg and OkiDoki! Arkitekter. Following on from this event Julia will be meeting curators and publishers and those working with artists’ writing in Gothenburg. She will use the studio space as a place for conversations and rehearsals and has a particular interest in talking about artists’ writing in relation to performance and literature. The studio will become a stage for performance, bringing a new focus to her distribution of her own work in her own voice. The writing she is interested in making fixes on small things, things that are fragmentary and brief, to test how brevity and brokenness are given as descriptions of what is called experimental in writing.

Entrance a the top of the stairs – follow signs.
Yes, your head is held on by a pin. Show me. And – I see – you can turn it almost fully round. Front legs to mouth-part. Now wash your hands.
