Glitched Belongings and arriscame
Solo exhibition and performance

Glitched Belongings is a collection of earnest experiments that paw and gnaw at the idea of belonging through strategies of visibility and materialized relations. The desire for a definite identity lingers in subjectivity, yet life takes shape attuning toward, through and with-in a certain ecology of relations. In these works, Dubia hopes to peel and enhance some of the weaved layers of being; with special attention to the “profession”, the “home” and the “body”.

arriscame is a guided performance where we propose to share and research our own boundaries, together. During the event, participants will be asked to go through a series of conversations and physical exercises. We will start with self-massage, talk about calluses of the skin and of the heart, and attempt to weave everyone in the room through open, earnest conversation, and – to materialize these connections – thread and needle. Our sense of self is neatly tied by the boundary of the skin: What does it allow to come in? What do I allow to come in? How do my boundaries shape relations to myself and others? What happens when I make myself available to challenge these limits? What can pass and move, that couldn’t before?

The desire to share, live together, to be open and vulnerable, can often be an uncomfortable one. Every step of the evening will be presented clearly, and participants are welcome to support the action as an observer. We hope to create a safe, playful and provocative space that stimulates critical reflection and togetherness. And, of course, will tie everything together with music & good food.

About

Ladder Space is an eclectic exhibition space that encapsulates what surrounds it. In a stable building at Halmtorvet – which also functions as a studio collective – exhibitions and performances manifest, in addition to activities of more processual, temporary, and communal character.

The exhibition space strives to resemble how we encounter the world today, as leaping and association-driven, where we scroll through a reality that is intertwined, paradoxical and interchangeable. Instead of curating the exhibitions based on a single idea or a set frame of references or preferences, we examine the chaotic and paradoxical concept of housing many different practices under one roof and let themes and associations flow freely and weave in and out of the different activities. The eclectic becomes a tool to generate new meanings, understandings and coherence and use this openness towards the chaotic as a method to create new forms of dialogue and add nuance and complexity to the activities and conversations that take place in Ladder Space.
