Meet up in Karen’s office, 10.00 am.
The Injury, Anja Carr.
We will then walk out together to visit Anja Carr’s installation at Fincken, before moving on to Galleri Fisk to see work by Karen Skog and Anja Ulset.
Here are some photos I took from Mellom himmel og hav, International performance festival, Herdla, Askøy; Norway, August 2008. The festival took place on a ex-military base from WWII, home to a German airbase, and while this was evident in some of the performances, it was difficult to find a connection to the historical context in others.
Pedro Gomez Egana (Colombia)
Melati Suryodarmo (Indonesia)
Boris Nieslony (Tyskland)
Roi Vaara (Finland)
The last photo in this series is an antenna I spotted during the festival. I am investigating the aesthetics of transmitters and receivers that increasingly pop up in the environment, as well as those that have become redundant.
This activity is related to my current work-in-progress, the Electromagnetic Fountain – a portable fountain that dances to the “sound” of electromagnetic waves detected in its near vicinity.
