Conversation Between Bodies 7.4

February 14 – March 10 2019
Aldea Center for Contemporary Art, Bergen, Norway

Conversation Between Bodies is a collaboration between Daniel Slåttnes and Sara Rönnbäck that has been ongoing since 2015.

In the project we investigate ways of communication and limits of understanding the materials as radical non-humans, and each other as fundamentally estranged by nature.

In a performance we wear masks, which also functions as EEG devices. The devices record electrical signals created by our brains and translate it into sound.

The sculptures carry similar devices which act as amplifiers for the materials electromagnetic fields, that also are translated to sound.

In the overall sound we imagine a superorganism together with the materials and the space.
