Abstract

Artists Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir and Mark Wilson joined several other speakers - Ronald Broglio, Associate Professor, Arizona State University, Marek Ranis, artist, Mara Kimmel, Senior Fellow, Institute of the North, Alaska and Robert Templer, Professor of Practice and Director of the Center for Conflict, Negotiation and Recovery at Central European University - at this conference session chaired by Julie Decker, Director, CEO, Anchorage Museum. Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir and Mark Wilson conduct their collaborative practice from bases in the north of England and Reykjavík, Iceland. With a strong research grounding, their socially engaged projects explore contemporary relationships between human and non-human animals in the contexts of history, culture and the environment. The practice sets out to challenge anthropocentric systems and thinking that sanction loss through representation of the other, proposing instead, alternative tropes of ‘parities in meeting.’ The work is installation based, using objects, text, photography and video.
