An artist talk by Zuhaitz Akizu and Jessica Auer: Researchers in residence
Sun, moon, sea, mountain, captain, carpenter, spoon, knife, wine, thief, hat, church, bell, ink, kitten, somersault, liar, “for how many socks?” and “eat shit!” are some of the 800 words and phases that were translated 400 years ago between Basque whale hunters and Icelanders. Cluster member Jessica Auer and visiting artist Zuhaitz Akizu invite you to delve into this historical narrative through words, storytelling and images.
