Down Dwars Delà is a trio of words from English, Dutch and French. These aren’t translations but instead position(ing) that we see as talking back to the places and postures we’ll take, experiment with and visit during these two worksessions. We look at these words as forming a vector between the beyond, the out-of-reach and the experienceable world.

Down Dwars Delà is the name of two connected worksessions that will take place one after the other during the summer of 2021, in two different places. One will behosted at the Eben-Ezer tower in Bassenge, Belgium the other at the Bidston Observatory just outside Liverpool, UK . Both settings will be approached as instruments to reconsider the modes of connection, observation and story-making they foster in relation with their wider historical, geographical, social, ecological, political and economical contexts.

The two worksessions are thought of independent but interconnected entities. The sessions work both together and apart. They will be held separately but feed into each other.
