Continuum – A Sound Art Weekend

SKF_C-SAW_7
27/2 – 1/3 2015

Skånes Konstförening, Bragegatan 15, Malmö, Sweden

Stop, look and listen. An increased presence and attention to sound.
Deciding how to listen determines what to hear.
Continuum – A Sound Art Weekend is a three-day exhibition exploring sound in the visual and mental dimensions.
Nine artists from five countries challenge sound’s role among our sensory impressions through sculpture, performance,
recording and installation.  The span ranges from an improvisational choir versus the inaudible infrasound of low frequencies,
noise of everyday life set against fragments of an inner cacophony.

Participating artists:

Hannah Anbert (DK) / Michael Christensen (DK) / Jonas Gazell (SE) / Jens Lindqvist (SE) / Tuukka Haapakorpi (FI) / Troels Nøhr Holmstrøm (DK) / Georgia Rodger (UK) / Tuukka Salonen (FI) / Helene Førde (NO)

The exhibition also features a catalogue launch, releasing the documentation catalogue from the group’s previous exhibition, made when the artists was studying in the Nordic Sound Art Programme.
The catalogue comes with a 12″ vinyl record, documenting the artist’s soundworks, as well as essays by sound artists Imri Sandström and Brandon Labelle.

27/2 18:00 – 21:00 Opening, Hannah Anbert Live Performance with Syvende&Sidst, DJ Onajs
28/2 13:00 – 19:00 Catalog/album release, DJ Jonas Olesen, Live Music Act
1/3 13:00 – 18:00 Exhibition presentation 14:00

A Push and a Shove Between the Ear and the Eye

A Push and a Shove Between the Ear and the Eye 

Upcoming course at The Academy of Fine Arts, Umeå Sweden
Feb. 23-Feb 27 2015 

-What do you hear of what you see?
-What do you see of what you hear?
 
Using the idea of film as a device through which to look at our surroundings, the workshop will delve into how sound may be used to generate fiction, manipulating our bodies and directing our gaze in order to affect the way we look at ourselves and the world around us. Examples from film, literature, and contemporary art will be used to discuss strategies of identification and distancing, using, among others, sound design, text, and vocal aesthetics.Lecturer: Alex Reynolds
