Rúni Weihe | Artist in Residence Show | Moving on: on my ongoing writings; poetry, notes and travelogue

On Mar 16th, Rúni Weihe presented his artist residence show, Moving on: on my ongoing writings; poetry, notes and travelogue. The show was of a discussion of three different manuscripts that Rúni is currently working on. The manuscripts in their different form and shape can initiate a discussion about the text as sound, as noise, as an image. The manuscripts presented were; A collection of poetic tableaus written from a month-long hike between abandoned quarries on the Faroe Islands in the summer of 2017; An ongoing collection of notes, brochures, items and travelogue; Text “as found”: A year of post-its written by a mother who deals with depression and anxiety transformed into sound/noise and as physical cut-ups.

During his master's degree he had exchange studies at Hogeschool vor Wetenschap en Kunst - Sint Lucas in Brussels, interned for New York based work ac, and had an extended semestre at the Aarhus University studying epistemology and the history of ideas.
