Séances with Materials #2

Nástupište 1-12, May - June 2017

With Andreas Hald Oxenvad, asp, beeswax, birch, birch bark, birch sap, chain, clay, copper, Daniel Slåttnes, dough, electrical circuits, electric fields, lime tree, Malin Bülow, metal wire, paraffin wax, peristaltic pumps, rabbit skin, Sara Rönnbäck and silicone tubing.

Séances with Materials is a landscape of performative sculptures where we want to activate the sculptural silence through seances into breathing, pumping and leaking bodies, a sound wave of repetitive mantras.

In dialogues with the materials and each other we enter séances that are stretched into durational performances which repeats itself without a clear start or end. The practice of coming back to the materials and doing an action over and over again creates cycles, rhythms, changes perceptions, dissolves materiality and creates new relationships.

The exhibition at Nastupiste 1-12 is a continuation and new development of an exhibition serie that earlier has been shown at Hotel Pro Forma in Copenhagen, Denmark and at Podium in Oslo, Norway.
