Jane Jin Kaisen – Community of Parting Not (Only) A Symposium on Artistic Research 2021
Jane Jin Kaisen talks about her artistic research PhD through which she has explored how translation and borders otherwise can manifest as resistance but also as a site for mutual recognition, dialogue, and collective emergence.
The objective of the PhD was to synthesize practice and theory and advance an approach to artistic research that is inherently interdisciplinary and boundary-crossing but where aesthetic mediation is crucial. The dissertation is composed of three interrelated artistic parts: an artwork, an exhibition, and a publication, each of which employ the Korean shamanic myth of the Abando- ned Princess Bari as a figuration. Doing so, Bari is engaged not as a literal myth, but becomes a metaphor, an artistic research methodology, as well as a the- oretical lens through which translation and borders are negotiated otherwise and from the thresholds.
This keynote presentation took place on October 28 in the Festsalen of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts..
