Fiona Woods' project for Rhyzom is COLLECTION OF MINDS:

'...a fluid platform for collaborative activity in which people from a wide variety of disciplines are invited to contribute to projects that question the prevailing horizon of political, social and economic possibility, employing artistic modes of presentation and representation to present alternatives (real and/or imagined) into the public domain, employing alternative circuits of production and distribution and/or the institutional site of art as appropriate.'

common? is a project being carried out for collection of minds #1, in association with PS2, Belfast as part of Rhyzom. common? is an exploration of the idea and practice of commons as it relates to land. There are three related aspect to this work;

The Translocal Condition

 

The Translocal Condition takes as its starting position an idea that the local is the exact point at which people can act in the interests of change. By connecting translocally, it becomes possible to build networks of change.

Each of the eight participating artists or artist collectives, drawn from around the world, shows a film work that engages with specific local conditions. By focusing on action and possibility, these works place the capacity and the responsibility for change in the hands of ordinary people, wherever they find themselves. 

A screening of international artist films at The Power of Local festival, The Courthouse Gallery, Ennistymon, Co. Clare, Ireland. August 4th - 8th 2011
