In short

with Selma Selman, Mikołaj Sobczak und Nicholas Grafia


Shedhalle brings together three artists for their first major institutional collaboration in Switzerland. Selma Selman, Mikołaj Sobczak, and Nicholas Grafia, friends who come from very different backgrounds, will spend a two-week-residency-period at Shedhalle. Together they will develop a spatial installation with their drawings, paintings, sculptural and video works.


And they will work on a new performance that will be presented on 16th and 17th of December, exploring the possibilities of experimental and political theatre. With references to absurdist performance and humorous play, they focus on social reality. They draw on narratives that are derived from socially stigmatized individuals and their bodily histories, but also their resilience and resistance.
