Opening: (art)work(sport)work(sex)work, YES! Association/Föreningen JA! in dialogue with Emy Fem, curated by Julia Paoli, The Power Plant, Toronto 20/6 – 7/9 2015


(art)work(sport)work(sex)work aims to map how ideologies, socially accepted norms and legislations govern the conditions of work and participation within the fields of contemporary art, multi-sports events and sex trade. In an effort to triangulate these fields and situate them within the urban space of Toronto, a series of bus rides will take place each Saturday throughout the duration of the exhibition.

For Bie biennal 2016 Åsa Elzén presents Memory of an Event (Minnet av en händelse), a site specific work that creates a link between The Women Citizen’s School at Fogelstad (Kvinnliga Medborgarskolan vid Fogelstad) (1925–1954) and Bie Bath (Augustenbad/Bie Badanstalt) (1843–1940). The project consists of two parts situated at three different places; an intervention on the remains of the foundation of the so called Water Factory (Vattenfabriken) in the Bie Bath park, and an audio installation in two parts, presented in the barn in Bie (the main exhibition space of the biennal) and at Fogelstad Estate (where the Women Citizen’s School was located earlier) approx 10 km north of Bie.
