Festival 
TOGETHER THE PARTS Day 6

Satu Herrala, Susanne Songi Griem with Pete Prison IV, Thomas Hörl/Peter Kozek, Peter Kutin

An artistic-performative gathering
Eva Seiler

studied scenography and sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. In her sculptures and spatial settings, she questions anthropocentrism and speculates on how the co-existence of human and non-human animals, nature and technology could be articulated in the future. She embraces hybrid modes of relationship in her practice, using both organic materials and industrially produced fabrics for her objects. For TOGETHER THE PARTS, she has largely worked with and re-used elements that were previously part of other constellations. In such a way, she creates and activates material connections for the gathering that can then be transformed into new contexts.

Peter Kutin

works with sound across genres, medium and media. Driven by curiosity and a collaborative ethos, Kutin has written and developed music, and sonic environments for film, theatre, performance, contemporary dance and the like and was directing several experimental short films and redisplays himself. He has performed at various notable music, film and media art festivals and venues across the globe, including Luff, 2daysArt, Mutek, Cafe Oto, Sonic Acts and Ars  Electronica, among others. kutin.xyz

Pete Prison IV

is a Viennese underground musician who plays in different music projects and formations, such as the hypnotic noise-jazz-punk duo Bosna and the solo dark-folk alter ego Vereter. Always rambling in the fields of music, performance, video, words and even sometimes dance. His works often engage with the void, subtle closeness, and humour arising from observations or personal experiences. Pete is the co-founder of Perilla, a self-organised zine and association that empowers the visibility and the voice of the Asian diaspora in Austria. bosnanowa.com, vereter.at

Satu Herrala

is a Helsinki-based curator and researcher with a background in dance, choreography and somatic movement practices. She is interested in exploring how attuning to bodily coexistence informs ways of being, knowing and acting and how collective action emerges from embodiment. Currently, she is working on a PhD in embodied curating at Aalto University School of Arts and Media and performing in Pauliina Feodoroff’s group piece Matriarchy, which had its premiere at The Sámi Pavilion of the 59th Venice Biennale. Together with Hans Rosenström, she co-curated a contemporary art programme, A I S T I T / coming to our senses, consisting of exhibitions, performances, discursive events and public art. Between 2015 and 2019, she worked as the artistic director of Baltic Circle, an international festival of contemporary theatre and performance organised annually in Helsinki. She has been a regular guest lecturer and mentor at the University of the Arts Helsinki and the Iceland Academy of the Arts.

Susanne Songi Griem

is a performance and visual artist from Germany. Her first work for stage Fisch und Schwan in Negligé (Fish and Swan in Negligé) premiered in 2021 as a journey through a living anti-cabinet of curiosities and memories. Spaziergang bei Nacht (Walk by Night) followed in 2022, an acoustic duet with Pete Prison IV that held the warm atmosphere of a village square in the distorted landscape of theatre lights. Susanne Songi works with the texture of different materials, objects, languages and performative states, bridging an act of writing and following scores with the fluidity inherent to moments of encounter. She has collaborated in different constellations for performative works in public space, among others, with Alexandra Pirici, Scarlet Yu and Xavier le Roy or in self-organised groups such as Gruppe Bussi and Perilla. songyi.info

Thomas Hörl and Peter Kozek

have been working together as an artist duo since 2003. Since then, they have realised numerous performances, spatial installations and exhibitions locally and internationally, both together and solo. Artistic research, performance, creating objects and filmmaking are interwoven in their work. Motifs and choreographies from local customs are released from their musealised rigidity, appropriated, transformed and integrated into the artists’ own aesthetic cosmos, taking on a contemporary life of their own. Thomas Hörl and Peter Kozek often collaborate with other artists and collectives, such as Alexander Martinz, Sodom Vienna, Victor Jaschke, and currently with the composer Peter Jakober as part of Wien Modern. kozek-hoerlonski.com

ROTOЯ – A Sonic Body
(procession/sonic interruption)

On the last day of the gathering, Satu Herrala attunes us to the resonances within one’s own embodied being, allowing these to guide us in weaving together a field of relations. She asks: What kind of collective body emerges from this field? What does it do? Later in the ‘listening circle’, she reflects on this practice of ‘being and moving in resonance’ as a possible path to embodied collective action, talking about the role of bodily knowledges and embodiment in gatherings (such as art events) and in organising collective action.
Susanne Songi Griem and Pete Prison IV invite us to dance, draw, move, and make music in a ‘circle dance’ that brings together bodies, materials and melodies, forming mountains, waves and blossoms, to end with a picnic on stage.
The six days of gathering end with a ‘procession’ of Thomas Hörl’s and Peter Kozek’s magical figures and a ‘sonic interruption’ by Peter Kutin.
