MARIA “DECIDA” WAHLBERG

CO-CREATIVE + MOVEMENT DIRECTOR

COLLABORATION: ”202020 DANCEFILM – THRESHOLD”

STOCKHOLM

“IN THESE LAST MONTHS, I’VE GOTTEN AN EVEN DEEPER UNDERSTANDING HOW THE SELF IS CONNECTED TO THE WHOLE & SOCIETY. THE FILMING HAS BEEN A CREATIVE PROCESS. I THINK WE ALL FELT LONELY & DISCONNECTED, MISSING MOVING TOGETHER WITH OTHER PEOPLE. I KNEW I HAD TO DANCE FOR THE SAKE OF MY MENTAL & PHYSICAL STAMINA. TO GET THROUGH THE THRESHOLD, & LISTEN TO THE BODY. BUT THERE WAS ALSO PLEASURE, LETTING THE BODY LEAD THE WAY TO LEAN INTO THIS UNKNOWN FUTURE – FORGETTING THAT ONE IS ALONE FOR THE MOMENT.”

MARIA “DECIDA” WAHLBERG IS A CO-CREATIVE; MOVEMENT & CREATIVE DIRECTOR & FACILITATOR WITH ONE LEG IN POP CULTURE, ONE IN ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND TRANSFORMATION PROCESSES. A LONG-TIME CREATIVE PARTNER TO SWEDISH SINGER ROBYN, RECENTLY CO-DIRECTING & CHOREOGRAPHING ROBYN’S “HONEY TOUR“. MARIA IS ALSO CO-FOUNDER OF CREATIVE COLLECTIVE 2FACED1. HERSELF A FORMER FREESTYLE DANCER, THE PROCESS IS THE KEY, MAKING SPACE FOR THE PRESENT; IMPROVISATION. SHE DIRECTED A DANCE INSTALLATION WITH ÅSA RITON AND FOUR FREESTYLE DANCERS; MADILOU, AMA KYEI, BIANCA TRAUM AND MONA NAMÉR.

ROSIE MARKS
PHOTOGRAPHER
COLLABORATION:
“202020 COLLAGE”
LONDON
PHOTO CUT-OUT COLLAGE

“I MADE A SERIES OF CARDBOARD CUTOUTS FROM PORTRAITS TAKEN IN MY GARDEN IN JULY 2020. WE CAST A VARIETY OF WOMEN AROUND LONDON & WITH HELP FROM FLO ARNOLD, DRESSED THE GIRLS IN GANNI (CURRENT SEASON & ARCHIVE). THE IDEA OF IMMORTALISING THIS DIVERSE RANGE OF WOMEN AS 3-D CUTOUTS FEELS TRIUMPHANT. CARDBOARD CUTOUTS ARE USUALLY RESERVED FOR CELEBRITIES. I FEEL ANY WOMAN SHOULD BE SEEN AND CELEBRATED – THE ORDINARY ARE THE EXTRAORDINARY.”

LONDON-BASED PHOTOGRAPHER ROSIE MARKS DOCUMENTS IDLE SUBJECTS AS THEY FOCUS ON THEIR DAY-TO-DAY LIVES. HER SUBJECTS
ARE ALWAYS ENGROSSED IN THEIR WORLDS, HER FASCINATION WITH THEM USUALLY LEFT UNREQUITED. ROSIE’S VOYEURISTIC EYE ALLOWS FOR THE ABSENCE OF SENTIMENTALITY, GIVING HER THE ABILITY TO CAPTURE THE ODDITIES AMID HUMAN BEHAVIOUR. MUCH OF ROSIE’S WORK TAKES PLACE IN SCENARIOS WHERE PEOPLE ARE THEIR MOST FREE – TEENAGERS AT PROM, COUPLES ON HOLIDAY OR GROUPS IN MIAMI DURING ART BASEL – ARE CAUGHT IN SUCH MATTER-OF-FACT WAY THAT HUMOUR & HUMILITY OCCUR AT ONCE, ASSERTING OR DEBUNKING ASSUMPTIONS OF THEIR IDIOSYNCRATIC EXISTENCES.

BERLIN
AUDIO COMPOSITION

“BAO & I WANTED TO CREATE SOMETHING REFLECTING OUR PERSONAL TENDENCIES COMING OUT OF THIS (FIRST) WAVE OF CONFINEMENT. WE MISS THE CLUB & THE ELECTRONIC VENTURES SO BAD; OUR MIX REFLECTS THAT, CREATES A SPACE FOR THE DANCERS IN THAT SPIRIT AND GIVES A SENSE OF INTROSPECTION AS WELL. I PERSONALLY LOVED TO INCLUDE SOME VERY SHARP-SOUNDING TRACKS, TO GIVE
SOMETHING REFRESHING IN THE TEXTURES.”

HAYLEY BLOMQUIST
ARTIST
COLLABORATION:“202020 INSTALLATION”
NEW YORK
HAND-KNITTED LEVI’S VINTAGE &
REPURPOSED GANNI DENIM

“I’VE HANDWOVEN A LARGE-SCALE QUILT FROM DEADSTOCK GANNI FABRIC AND REPURPOSED LEVI’S JEANS. FROM A YOUNG AGE MY GRANDMOTHER INFLUENCED ME BY TEACHING ME HOW TO KNIT AND SHOWING ME THE CONNECTION THAT CRAFT HAS WITH THE COMMUNITY. THIS SENSE OF COMMUNITY TRANSFORMED IN MY ART BY ENCOURAGING PARTICIPATION THROUGH CROWD-SOURCING MATERIALS. THE CULMINATION OF CRAFT, COMMUNITY, AND POST-CONSUMER RESPONSIBILITY WEAVES TOGETHER AN UNAVOIDABLE OBJECT AS MASSIVE AS THE PROBLEM WE FACE WITH THROW-AWAY CONSUMPTION.”

NEW YORK BASED ARTIST HAYLEY IS KNOWN FOR REUSING ORDINARY & READILY AVAILABLE HOUSEHOLD MATERIALS & KNITTING THEM INTO INCREDIBLE ARTWORKS. MOST NOTABLY, SHE COLLECTS OLD PLASTIC BAGS FROM HER FRIENDS & COMMUNITY IN NEW YORK WITH HER PLASTIC COLLECTIVE SERVICE & USES UP TO 3,500 PLASTIC BAGS TO CREATE ONE BEAUTIFUL INSTALLATION.

TEXT AND VOICE RECORDING

“MY ESSAY IS A DISPATCH FROM BROOKLYN: IT’S A SNAPSHOT OF WHERE I AM EMOTIONALLY DEALING WITH THE PANDEMIC & LOCKDOWN IN MY CITY. I WAS SITTING WITH A FRIEND THE OTHER NIGHT ON MY STOOP & I SAW MY YOUNG, COOL NEIGHBORS WERE HAVING A GET TOGETHER A FEW HOUSES DOWN. I WAS IMMEDIATELY JEALOUS. IT WASN’T COMING FROM A PLACE OF JUDGMENT BUT WONDER. LIKE, HOW DO YOU PLAN FOR A FUTURE THAT IS NOT GUARANTEED? THAT TOOK ME DOWN AN EXISTENTIAL RABBIT HOLE LOL.”

BORN IN DALLAS, TEXAS, MARJON CARLOS STUDIED GENDER & AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDIES AT BROWN & COLUMBIA UNIVERSITIES, RESPECTIVELY, & HAS LIVED & WORKED IN NEW YORK CITY FOR OVER 15 YEARS NOW. MARJON BEGAN HER WRITING CAREER AS THE FOUNDING

DURING LOCKDOWN, MARJON BEGAN HER INSTAGRAM LIVE SERIES ’YOUR FAVORITE AUNTIE’ – A NEW KIND OF ADVICE SHOW THAT IS A WITTY MELANGE OF SALIENT ADVICE, CULTURAL CRITICISM, HUMOR, & WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT. THIS PAST JANUARY MARJON WROTE AN ESSAY ON HER HOPES AND DREAMS FOR THIS NEW DECADE, & 8 MONTHS IN SHE REVIEWS WHERE SHE IS & REFLECTS ON ALL THAT HAS HAPPENED.

Turning on their Bluetooth speaker moments later, a dance party would commence, and soon, other friends would pull up on bikes, hop out of Ubers. They would scream out in recognition and joy. They would even embrace, which sent shockwaves through me. — Marjon Carlos

ABOUT GANNI 202020

For Spring Summer 2021 we continue to pursue the question “what are the 20s gonna be like” this time by focusing on the questions of what we’ve learned so far and where we go from here? The result is a five-piece installation that comes to life through different lenses and mediums, creating a multitude of perspectives, bringing together a community of GANNI creatives from Berlin, New York, London, Stockholm, Montreal and Copenhagen.
