::: performance & installation @
arts in the environment nordic symposium 2017 :::

performance: saturday 2 september
between 16:00 and 20:00
installation: 2 september – 8 october
vartiosaari, helsinki
free

from october 25 until september 3 i will be participating in the arts in the environment nordic symposium 2017, taking part in the artist camp on the island of vartiosaari and working towards the production of both a live echo survey performance, and subsequent installation focusing on one specific location on the island. the live performance will take place during the opening of the group exhibition on saturday, 2 september. the installation will be a part of this exhibition, running on the island until 8 october.

a brief description of the project:

in 2012 i began a new series of performances which I call echo surveys. the premise is straightforward: each is entirely unique and site-specific; all sounds heard are either produced live from materials found in the space, or have been recorded there during a pre-performance reconnaissance visit. this is an attempt to retain a specific and direct connection with each space and each audience, and to retain a sense of risk associated with each performance. for arts in the environment the work with also include a site-specific installation, to be experienced in the location itself. the exact form and location of the sonic exploration of vartiosaari will be finalised during the artist camp.

Celebram Ziua de nastere a artei si in 2017! Patrick McGinley (aka murmer) este artistul invitat pentru aceasta editie. El va performa live, in Studioul 15 al Radioului public, de la ora 23:40, iar evenimentul va fi transmis live pe site-ul http://artsbirthday.ebu.ch/.

Patrick McGinley locuieşte în Europa din 1996 şi opereaza in mediile sound, performance si radio. La baza creaţiei sale stă colecţia de sunete şi obiecte găsite, pe care a construit-o în ultimii 20 de ani. În 2002 a fondat framework, o asociaţie care produce o emisiune săptămânală de radio bazată pe înregistrări de teren primite de la colaboratori internaţionali.

Pentru accesul in institutie avem nevoie de confirmarea prezenţei. Cei care nu vor apărea pe listă nu vor putea participa. Mulţumiiiiim de înţelegere!
