General Text

Contingent Agencies is an artistic research project initiated by Nikolaus Gansterer and Alex Arteaga to inquire into a subject matter that is denominated with various terms as moods, places, environments or atmospheres. Each situation is endowed with a particular atmosphere. Each circumstance brings about a specific environment: a significant but non-objectified, precise but vague, ephemeral and enveloping presence. This project aims at developing specific practices of notation and reflection that allow for a more comprehensive understanding of how the agencies enable the emergence of these kind of presences. After an internal workshop, where practices of notation and reflection were applied in ressonance with the atmosphere of Collingwood Yards by a group of invited researchers the findings of the workshop will be dialogically shared with an open audience. 6-7pm public presentations by Nikolaus Gansterer (Contingent Agencies) featuring Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll, Aarti Jadu, Debris Facility, Helen Grogan, Rosie Isaac, Zoe Scoglio and Joel Stern. The event takes place in the framework of Mono-Poly March 2022 curated by Liquid Architecture and Composite, at Collingwood Yards, 35 Johnston, Collingwood, Woiwurrung and Boonwurrung, Narrm, VIC 3066, Australia.
