MILK in Residence


The door opens to the bathhouse and there are many milky substances to wade within. You see lichens sprouting on the roof before you and you wonder where that odour is coming from. You melt into the shoreline of white waves and find a new space for making amidst the clay. Your feet are sticky and you don’t know whether you will have anything to present, just yet. Sometimes milk needs a long time to pasteurize. Sometimes you need to let your cup sit for a few days before you are ready to drink. Can you develop a photograph in a glass of milk?


MILK in Residence is a free mini-residency program where MILK hands over the keys to artists and collectives we trust.

 

 


MILK in Residence #1:
April 9 - 12
Sarah Walker & Katerina Kokkinos-Kennedy, curated by Chamber Made

 

Public Event, Saturday April 9, 5-7pm:
 

Sarah Walker and Katerina Kokkinos-Kennedy invite participants for a Listening Party and Deep Dive for their work in development, 'Bodies of Water.' This will be a large-scale public participatory work about our mythic relationship with the sea; one that is changing rapidly as the ocean becomes a site of increasing danger and disquiet in the climate era. 

 

We invite participants to come and hear some of the audio we've been working on, and to participate in a casual discussion about water, myth, ritual and participation. 

 

Please bring your own headphones + phone/listening device.
