Remai Modern is looking for Saskatoon residents to take part in an upcoming project by artist Tino Sehgal. In his work This Situation (solo), visitors encounter a person who engages them in a conversation drawing from the history of Western thought. Topics may include the question of the good life, the role of work or the relationship to the earth. We are seeking outgoing people to enact the project: people with diverse backgrounds, knowledge and perspectives who are comfortable speaking and conversing in public. Some memorization and simple movements are also required.  

There are no particular prerequisites necessary for participation, however, a background in the humanities or social sciences may be helpful. Past participants have included academics, writers, students and teachers.  

Sehgal’s exhibition at Remai Modern takes place from July 16-September 4 with rehearsals taking place in the month leading up to the exhibition. Working times are flexible and can include daytime, evening and weekend sessions, which can be arranged around other commitments. All rehearsals and shifts are compensated.  

To apply, send a brief email to project curator, Troy Gronsdahl, at tgronsdahl@remaimodern.org. 

Tino Sehgal is a leading international figure working in the realm of live arts. His acclaimed body of work consists of “constructed situations” — ephemeral art experiences activated through encounters between the museum visitor and the individuals enacting his work. His exhibition at Remai Modern includes two additional works, This Success/This Failure and Yet untitled

Sehgal’s artwork has been the subject of several solo exhibitions, recently at Bleinheim Palace, UK (2021); Odawara Art Foundation, Japan (2019); Officine Grandi Riparazioni, Turin (2018); V-A-C Foundation, Moscow, Russia (2017); Fondation Beyeler, Switzerland (2017); Jemaa el-Fna, Marrakesh; Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2016); Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2015); Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin (2015); Pinacoteca, Sao Paulo and CCBB, Rio de Janeiro (2014); Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing (2013); Tate Modern, London (2012); and Solomon R.
