We all found ourselves in a completely extraordinary situation, we did not anticipate. How do you respond to this crisis as an artist, and how do you feel in this new context?

Every day, due to the restrictions and lack of stimuli that we face, as well as a complete shortfall of knowledge about how long this is going to last, we are in desperate need for experimentation, inspiration and reassurance.

We asked artists to contribute with thoughts, ideas, and words of encouragement to our ONE Project community. This can be art and non–art, basic or extraordinary activity, a thought, an idea crossing through your mind, new fear of the way of behaviour you found within yourself, the lack of
special findings caused by the situation.

The materials for the HOW ARE YOU are collected by Magdalena Zoledz and Pallavi Majumder who met at the Sharing Borders Conferense & Exhibition at Slade School of Fine Art in Februrary 2019 in London.

Magdalena Zoledz (website) focuses her practice on the notion of post-photography. She works with text, photography, experimental video and object. In her research, she deals with the evolution of digital images often referring to the posthumanism. In 2017, she started a PhD programme in photography at the University of Arts in Poznań and between 2018-2019 she was a visiting research student at the Slade School of Fine Art. She is a founder of ONE Project and a member of 280a.

Pallavi Majumder (website) is a painter and installation artist from Kolkata, India. At present, she is a fourth-year PhD student in the Doctoral School of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, Budapest. Her research basically deals with “unexplained” states that we often experience yet fail to express. Her works aim to provide a “container” for the objectification of the unexplainable emotions or incomprehensible situations that float but are also deeply rooted, that share the borders of the known and unknown, the relatable and unrelatable, the recognized and unrecognized, the visible and invisible. These states, which she remarks as “cledons” are mostly portrayed in her works that are not always necessary to be explained or understood but are somewhat to be solved.
