Pilgrimage of the Fool, Agnes Nedregard


A new commission sees Norwegian artist Agnes Nedregard create a piece that explores the historic nature of Lincoln. Nedregard will be undertaking a two day pilgrimage to Lincoln Cathedral, starting in the Lincolnshire country side and completing the journey in the shadow of the city's historic, symbolic building. You are invited to be a part of the final element of the pilgrimage, by joining her at the Stonebow on Lincoln High Street, and witness the climatic finale of her journey. This new work is created in response a site visit to Lincoln undertaken in March 2010, in which Agnes was given a guided tour of Lincoln Cathedral. Captivated by the significance of the Cathedral to Lincolns past and present, this new performance invites audiences to undertake a ‘pilgrimage' with Nedregard to the Cathedral in a vogue of re-discovery, snaking up Lincolns famous Steep Hill to the cities summit. Agnes Nedregard is a Norwegian performance artist based in Scotland and Norway. Her working practice is primarily based within live performance, while she explores a bodily language in other mediums like video drawings and sculptural installations. She graduated from the Masters of Fine Art programme at Glasgow School of Art in 2005, and has since showed her work in festivals, galleries and screenings in Europe, USA and Asia. Recent projects include a solo exhibition/ performance at Stills, Edinburgh, participation in the performance festivals Beijing Open and Live Action New York, all in 2009. Frequently she enters collaborations with other artists, among others Scottish visual artist Moray Hillary and Brazilian performer and aerial acrobat Raquel Nicoletti. She teaches performance art workshops for art, theatre, film and architecture students in Europe. Agnes is currently the editor of nordictantrum.org, a web magazine for Nordic performance art.
