Elisabeth Molin and Serra Tansel are hosting a Zoom session to think of smells, memories and senses of belonging as portals and passages that connect us to each other.
SH/FT was initiated with the idea of forming temporary assemblages with fluid dynamics and finding ways of self-organising to create intimacy and new associations.
The group session is an open invitation for anyone of all ages to participate in, or to listen in on. Please bring a story of a smell that triggered a memory for you and an image / images that is associated with this moment. We will have audio only and use these images as our profile photos on Zoom. You are welcome to use pseudonyms if it is more comfortable.
Instructions for uploading a profile image on Zoom:Right-click on your video and tap Add Profile Picture. Choose the picture from your computer, adjust borders, and save it. Turn off your video by tapping Stop Video.
Elisabeth Molin (b.1985, Denmark) explores the world through an associative, process driven approach to storytelling. Writing and stories - in one form or another - is always part of her process, which materializes itself as printed matter, installations, sculptures and video works. Molin's work often responds to an accelerated yet fragmented time feeling, and through them she attempts to suggest new intersections, new materialities of time and new modes of belonging.
Molin studied Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art and MA Photography at Royal College of Art in London. She has recently shown work at Wiels in Brussels, Sundy in London, Sixty Eight Institute in Copenhagen, Austrian Cultural Forum in London and MAW, ISCP and Columbia University in New York.
Serra Tansel (b. 1989 Istanbul) lives and works in London. Tansel’s practice engages with the ways in which we settle into our world, our cities, our houses and our bodies and the structures, the relationships we establish within them. She is a member of the collectives Makkam they founded with Alper Oruç, Daniela Nofal and Yamen Makdad; and Bonnington Café in London. She is one of the faces of Hayırlı Evlat.
No Show Space hosted her first solo exhibition, Sera Tansel Unlimited, in 2015. Other exhibitions include "Passion can create drama out of inert stone"?!, Peak, Elephant & Castle Shopping Mall, London (2020); HIGHER, Pilot Gallery, Istanbul (2020), Heavens!, Battersea Arts Centre, London and Bilsart, İstanbul (2019); Sinopale 7, Sinop (2019); Billboard 8171, Annin Arts, London (2018); Dünya Döner, Museum aan de Stroom, Antwerp (2015); Water is on the House with Duval Timothy, Polistar, İstanbul (2014).
