In November 2018 the Creative Centre for Fluid Territories (CCFT) in collaboration with the Faculty of Fine Art, Music and Design, Bergen, and the North Sea Maritime Museum, Telavg , organised and hosted a colloquium, fieldwork and exhibition exploring questions of place-identity in relation to the particular context and history of

Telavg, Norway. This was the second part of a planned ongooing series of Nomadic Dialogues begun in Cyprus.) Telavg is a small coastal village, 25 miles south west of Bergen, where in 1942, during World War II, it was the

scene of the Telavg Tragedy when German soldiers, in reprisal for the death of two prominent Gestapo officers, erased the village. All the men in the village were either executed or sent to the concentration camp at Sachsenhausen. The women and children were imprisoned for two years in the Hardanger Fjord region.

The associated colloquium included contributions from CCFT members as well as from invited international guest speakers: Professor of Comparative Politics, Hakan Gurcan Sicakkan, composer Daniel Peter Biro and performing

artist and designer from Macedonia Marija Miloshevska. Staff and students from the Faculty of Fine Art, Music and Design, Bergen alongside CCFT members undertook

fieldwork in Telavg and its surrounding landscape which culminated in an exhibition and presentation of research, artworks, texts and performances on 16th November (Gallery 61, Faculty of Fine Art, Bergen).

In relation to the conceptual and physical properties of place, Miwon Kwon identifies the dialectic between the authority of [] uncontaminated and pure idealistic spaces, and the materiality of the natural landscape or the impure and ordinary space of the everyday (1) as real places. For the

geographer Tim Creswell, the study of place has become a place in its own right where the dynamics of many disciplines are able to come into meaningful dialogue (2). Our interdisciplinary approach as artists is both: theoretical, focused on the aesthetics, cultural archaeology and

representation of space and place; and practical, in the consideration of how such spaces might be represented and transformed through creative practices and cultural interaction. The research also acknowledges Gilles Deleuzes analysis of Jean-Franois Lyotards proposition (3) that while a place

may be defined by a knowledge base and/or language, it is also a figural space that prefigures imposed meanings (4), thereby constituting place as both a fixed and nomadic space. Consequently, as Nikos Papastergiadis asserts: Art that has come from a place, and which refers to a place, must

also acknowledge its own [state of] exile (5) thereby allowing for a nuanced reflection upon the nature and meaning of place as both physical and abstract; This state of exile offers opportunities to devise innovative ways of approaching creative practice in relation to audience in specific cultural

and political contexts. (1) Kwon, Miwon, One Place After Another: Site-specific art and locational identity, MIT Press, 2004, 11. (2) Cresswell, Tim, Place an Introduction (second edition), West Sussex: WILEY Blackwell, 2015, 1.
