»Luondu Luonddus – As Part of Nature, We Are Nature«, the current exhibition at Felleshus, shows 24 different ways of how art can connect human and non-human others. Following this idea, we invited artists and artist-collectives to take us on a journey into the ways in which art and science can become means to create relationships to human and more-than human others.

Dr. Liisa-Rávna Finbog, SIMKA, Charlotte Weitze and Sabine Scho will offer workshops exploring ways to connect to nature through art and create art through connecting with natures. By asking »whose nature« in each specific case, we will discuss how these approaches might change perceptions of »nature« as other and challenge notions of ‘nature’ as human possession and how we can integrate explorative and artistic practices into everyday lives.

Sabine Scho is a poet whose works explore human–nature relationships at the border of poetry and visual culture. She has published poetry and prose-miniatures with Kookbooks (»Tiere in Architektur«, »Album«, and »Farben«).

Charlotte Weitze: Sensuality in the Novel Rosarium
Charlotte Weitze is a Danish author of fiction and drama. Charlotte Weitze’s authorship has been characterized by her exploration of the liminal spaces between social realism and the otherworldly. In 2022, she published the essay »Klimaet og kunstneren« (climate change and the artist).
