Cecilia Bengtsson is an artist and classically trained musician who lives and works in Amsterdam. She creates art experiences for audiences and participants where she explores relations between humans, sounds and sculptural objects specifically focused on the concept of letting go. During February and March, she will work in residency at Inter Arts Center with her project ‘Way Forward Touch’, where she works with visually impaired people creating workshops where participants explore sculptural objects and sound relations together.
Cecilia Bengtsson is interested in connections and discords between visual and non-visual perceptions and is drawing upon philosophy like Karen Barad’s idea of the ‘cut’ and Jean Luc Nancy’s writings on Listening and sound. In and through artworks, that are experiences, she investigates the interrelations of the world.
At the EAREYE festival she will share experiences and results from her time in residency in the form of a lecture: Saturday, 7 March, at 17.00, Red Room.
