Elin Már Øyen Vister & mirko nikolić

Elin Már Øyen Vister is an artist and composer based in Røst, Nordland, Norway-Sápmi who works within several creative disciplines. Their work breaks with Western hegemonic narratives that have placed the human being in the centre and instead focuses on landscape’s innate stories and knowledge. They co-run Røst AIR – an artist in Residency, an artist run workshop and AIR project, at Skomvær Fyr,Røst, Nordland/Sápmi.

mirko nikolić holds a PhD in Arts & Media Practice from the University of Westminster. Through place-based performance, pedagogy and critical writing, he seeks to prefigure and actualise minoritarian ecologies oriented towards natural cultural justice. In recent projects, mirko has been involved in de-extractivist politics, multispecies commoning, performativity of vegetal touch, and unlearning of anthropocentric and capitalist survival ideologies.


This eco-poetics experiment brings other-than-human bodies into conversation with one another, as well as human-like bodies.
