Based in Copenhagen Nana Francisca Schottländer is working with emerging hybrids in the intersection between dance, performance, installation- and conceptual art.
Central to her work is the use of her own body as a living tool for investigation and creation. Her projects span choreographic works, performative installations, choreographed events, video works, exposed inhabitations, spatial installations, text, sound and performative interventions in public spaces.
The works are often formed in ongoing serial explorations of particular themes: Each work series has its own logic, strategies and aesthetics and is deeply rooted in both theory, literature, locational awareness and personal material.
Each manifestation within a series of works is a micro laboratory for research and mutual exploration, creation and exchange with the audience and with the place, where it is situated. The works are conceptualized site specifically and employ strategies of immersion, co-creation and long duration.
Within recent years her focus has been on the co-creational potentials of encounters and intra-actions between humans and other-than-humans such as wind, fungi, tide, soil and landscapes with their inherent phenomena and beings.
Alongside her own artistic practice she collaborates regularly with other artists as performer, choreographer, dancer and conceptualizer as well as in a curatorial practice.
