Carrying Across - Crossing Disciplines as a Form of "Translation"

Share

City:

Eligibility:

For Interim's July issue, we are seeking work that crosses disciplines in the form of "translation." The origin of the word translate means "to carry across." While translation usually occurs across languages, we are looking specifically for work that is carried across one art form to the other, or work that seeks to create new forms altogether. Perhaps you've created dance informed by the structure of a particular sonnet, or you've taken a famous dance or performance art piece you found inspiring and translated its rhythm, structure, and images into a poem. We are looking for this kind of challenging work. 

We are open to work produced in English as well as work produced in other languages that has been translated to English. If the poetry is written in another language and translated into English and then turned into a performance (or performance into poetry), we are happy to consider it. As with any translations, the original and the translated work should be submitted together (for both discipline translation and language translation). Collaborations and experimental work are very welcome here as we believe the truth is always experimental. Please make certain all collaborators are informed of the submission and general guidelines in terms of rights and rights reversion. 

We are looking for poetry in performative forms, performance in poetic forms, and anything that exists interstitially between poetry and performance. We are open to artwork, new media, and hybrid works of poetry. For reference, we define performance as any form of theater, dance, dance theater, movement theater, videos of dance and movement, and anything that falls under the umbrella of performance art. Artwork (paintings, drawings, sculpture) related to this theme will also be considered.

Please familiarize yourself with our previous performance + poetry issue: Vol. 35, Issue 2

Poems and Translations of Written Poetic Work: Submit three to six poems in a single document. 

Hybrid, Video, and All Multimedia Work: Please include all work in a single file whenever possible. 

Artwork: Please upload up to six (6) high-res files containing your work, preferably in PNG or JPG format, 800-1500 pixels wide. 

For All Submissions: If any of the work included in your submission is accepted elsewhere, please withdraw the submission containing that file using Submittable. There is no need to notify us of withdrawals outside our Submittable account.

Copyright and Permissions: If you are using music or translating another wriiter's work across languages or disciplines, please make certain to gain permission to use this prior to submitting it to us. We take copyright seriously. 

Deadline: April 15, 2019

We look forward to spending time with your work!

PROGRAM BASED ON THE FOLLOWING CONCEPT

Time is an enormous phenomenon. While researching the different aspects of it, we found there's research showing that the faster you move the slower you age. Does it mean that you can be so busy in life that you forget to age? Aging as an action. There's also the perspective of forgotten time: "Every time a person dies a library is burned down". The scale of time changes depending on age: when you are younger an hour is a larger percent of your life. Also, we found that the traditional Maya calendar states that time is quickening. We are also interested in the perspective of physics. When Einstein talks about the space-time he states that the past and the future exists just as much as the present. What does it mean that time is space-like? Is it possible for us to understand?

AGING AS AN ACTION is facing this various time-research on an artistic level; because we believe that artistic questions are similar to scientific questions. We hope to find new approaches that could change our perception both in the act of creation and during the act of sharing with an audience. The use of performance art allows us to come closer to the point of a direct experience with our bodies. Performance art includes the time aspect by its nature, and with its ephemeral gesture it leads inevitably to knowledge about time. We use the body as a measure instrument. We explore how the body and the space are influencing each other. The relation between them could be understood as time - time in art as a consequence and a condition of a body in a space. Time allows us to move, to let the relationship develop. Thus for us the body is an essential instrument to investigate time. The intensive use of space within the work with the body will offer a relation to the context, and through this, a cultural aspect. What creates the specificity of a space and how can we use it for articulating something?

Call for Entries to Middle Eastern art exhibition in London

Share

City:

Keywords:

 

Thread of Light is a group art exhibition bringing together the work of

contemporary Middle Eastern artists, at P21 Gallery London, for six

weeks as of May 2017.

In response to the recent events of our times, an increasingly

stereotypical imagery is being used to depict the peoples of the

Middle East. This exhibition provides the opportunity to showcase

how artists whose origins are from the region find strength, peace or

play in these times of conflict in the Middle East. The intention is to

provide an alternative image or work of art to challenge the

oversimplified Middle Eastern identity.

The brief of the show can be interpreted by the literal or figurative

meaning of the words that make up the title Thread of Light. Artists

can submit work with a reference to light, whether in the literal sense

as a direct source of illumination, less directly through photography

and moving image or metaphorically in any medium. Transparency,

layering, shadows and volume all speak of light.
