    Elsewhereness:Milton Keynes 2011 Duration 03:00 Video:Anders Weberg :: http://weberg.se Sound:Robert Willim :: http://robertwillim.com Commissioned by The 2nd International Visual Methods Conference in Milton Keynes, UK. http://www.visualmethods.org/ Project url: http://elsewhereness.com/​ ELSEWHERENESS The Elsewhereness series deals with questions of site specificity, juxtaposing the nomadic with the place-bound. Early site specific artworks in the 1960-70 were often massive in form and commented the commodifications of the prevailing artworld. Many works were made in harmony with artist Richard Serras expression" to remove the work is to destroy the work". The work was place-bound. Site specific art has since then been mixed and transformed. Often its about the social, about engagement and relations between people living in a certain place and visiting artists. Elsewhereness twist these approaches. It is instead about the ephemeral, about alienation and non-presence. It takes the possibilities of digital media for site specific art to its extreme. It's also in a way a caricature of the ideas of the art worlds commissions creating a "one place after another"-dynamic that Miwon Kwon writes about in her discussion of the history of site specific art (2002). Elsewhereness is about the artists NOT being there. The artists are elsewhere, touching from a distance. Elsewhereness is based on a number of site specific audio-visual works. The works are made solely from audio and videomaterial found on the web, material that emanate from a specific place. The audiovisual pieces are manipulated and composed into a surreal journey through an estranged landscape. The films are based on the culturally bound and stereotypical preconceptions of the artists. The finished Elsewhereness work can be downloaded into a media player or mobile phone and enjoyed when walking around the surroundings of the specific place, from where the material emanate. Previous commissions: ELSEWHERENESS:NEW ORLEANS, Commissioned by Ethnographic Terminalia 2010, New Orleans. USA. ELSEWHERENESS:UTRECHT, Commissioned by IMPAKT 2010, Utrecht, the Netherlands. ELSEWHERENESS: MANCHESTER, Commissioned by FutureEverything 2010, Manchester, UK. ESLEWHERENESS: CAPE TOWN, CAPE 09 Art Biennale, 2009, Cape Town, South Africa. ELSEWHERENESS: YOKOHAMA, Dislocate 08 Festival, 2008, Yokohama/Tokyo, Japan. As the series expands, a number of places will be joined into a web of surreal associations, saying something about the various places but also about cultural preconceptions.

The Elsewhereness series deals with questions of site specificity, juxtaposing the nomadic with the place-bound. Early site specific artworks in the 1960s – 70s were often massive in form and commented on the commodification of the prevailing artworld. In keeping with artist Richard Serra’s expression” to remove the work is to destroy the work”, most of this work was place-bound. Site specific art has since then been transformed. Often it is about the social, about engagement and relations between people living in a certain place and visiting artists. Elsewhereness subverts these approaches. It is instead about the ephemeral, about urban alienation and non-presence. It takes the possibilities for digital media in relation to site specific art to its extremes. It is also in a way a parody of the history of site-specific art creating “one place after another”, a dynamic that Miwon Kwon writes about in her discussion of the history of site specific art (2002). Elsewhereness is about the artists NOT being there. The artists are elsewhere, touching from a distance. The works in the Elsewhereness series are made solely from audio and videomaterial found on the web, material that emanates from a specific place. The audiovisual pieces are manipulated and composed into a surreal journey through an estranged landscape, based entirely on the culturally bound and stereotypical preconceptions of the artists about the actual location. The finished Elsewhereness work can be downloaded into a media player or mobile phone and enjoyed when walking around the surroundings of the specific place, from which the material emanates. The first part of the series was Elsewhereness: Yokohama, commissioned by the Dislocate 08 festival in Yokohama/Tokyo. The second part was Elsewhereness:Cape Town, commissioned by Cape 09 Art Biennale, 2009, Cape Town, South Africa. The third was Elsewhereness:Manchester, commissioned by FuturEverything 2010 in Manchester. As the series expands, a number of places will be joined over time into a web of surreal associations of difference and similarity, reflecting something about the various places but also about cultural preconceptions. Upcoming editions 2010 is Utrecht [Impakt Festival] and New Orleans.
