In this lecture with live music Mette Edvardsen will speak about language and repetition as material in her work. What does it mean to do the same? What does it mean to do something again? Every word was once an animal is part of the series Music For Lectures by Burrows and Fargion that aims to collide academic practice with the actuality of performance and continues their recent practice of creating often in proximity and collaboration with somebody else’s work.

A few years ago the artists Sarah Vanhee, Mette Edvardsen, Alma Söderberg and Juan Dominguez created Manyone, a support structure, a scaffold, that helps to organize their work in a sustainable manner and in accordance with the reality of their individual practice. Manyone does not function as a label. Their coming together is based on shared affinities and a desire to connect and support each other as artists.
On the first week-end of Almost Summer festival, the Manyone artists will be showing a selection of their works, proceeded by an artist talk and followed by a cocktail party. They will come together to share their work, both with each other and with the audience, is something that the artists have set out to do on a yearly basis. This year they are coming to BUDA, a house that supports the Manyone artists on a long-term basis.
