evaporated landscapes



Tags:

Where: Black Box Theater, Oslo, Norway
When: 13-14/3, 2014

With evaporated landscapes Mette Ingvartsen creates an artificial world that behaves according to rules of evaporation, dissolution and transformation. Departing from ephemeral materials and matters like light, sound, bubbles and foam the performance constructs landscapes of various kinds.

Some of the artificial landscapes resemble nature, as we know it from the past, others look more like futuristic inventions. In either case they produce sensations of calmness and rest but also fascination and surprise, impressions we normally attribute to the world of natural wonders.

In Evaporated Landscapes choreography no longer belongs to the organization of bodies and their movements in space. Rather choreography is understood to be the relationship that operates between the ephemeral elements, as they magically float and dissolve into space. The movements that appear do not only show up in space but also within the bodies of the spectators due to the sensations and perceptions they encounter throughout the performance.

mette ingvartsen: the artificial nature project



Tags:

When: 15-16/3, 2014
Where: Dansens Hus, Oslo, Norway

In the exhibition Making Things Public (2005) and in the accompanying book, the French philosopher and sociologist Bruno Latour presented his vision of a ‘politics of things’. How can the concept of representation be extended in our representative democracy so that it loses its exclusive human interpretation? Politics is about the world and therefore it is not only people that are represented in parliament, but also ‘things’. In recent years, Mette Ingvartsen, inspired by Latour’s ideas, has worked on a series of performances in which the question of ‘non-human actions’ in a choreography play a central role. It is no longer the performer’s body alone that she brings to the stage; she also allows objects and materials to act as full participants. This is a repeat of the four performances that resulted from that research.

September 25

13.30-15.30, Studio G: Rasmus Ölme presents his research project
“Since this year is my last as a PhD candidate I will make an attempt to summarize the process of these past 5 years of research. I will give an overview on larger questions, such as how the academic frame has influenced the artistic production, and move into details with practical examples. The attempt will be to both explain and apply the thinking and the doing of the project that for now carries the title From Model to Module.”

September 26

10.00-12.30, Studio G: Nicolas Malevé (Constant/Active Archives)
In this presentation Nicolas Malevé will present the artistic work in which he deals with the the life archives of the Finnish Artist Erkki Kurenniem and the consequences of including this archive in artistic work today.

13.30-15.30, Studio 9: Malin Arnell presents her on-going research
During Malin Arnell’s presentation we will interact with YES! Association’s/Föreningen JA!s latest work; Zyklische Gesellschaftsreise, which took place July 23 on the Berlin Ringbahn. It’s a collective travel where we engage in our desire to make sense of “today” through looking, moving, conversing, and reading aloud. Perhaps we can say that it is about the everyday choreography of and in the urban space.
This presentation will be participatory. Also see www.foreningenja.org

the artificial nature project



Tags: ,

The Artificial Nature Project is the latest in a series of four works by Mette Ingvartsen staging perceptions and sensations of nature. The interest in fictionalizing and choreographing natural phenomena started in 2009 with “Evaporated Landscapes”, a performance installation devoid of human presence where the act of performing itself was given over to materials like bubbles, foam, fog, sounds and light. In The Artificial Nature Project, a new encounter between human and non- human performers begins with the following questions:

What does it mean to make a choreography for materials where human movement is no longer in the center of attention?

How can one address the force of things, materials, objects and matters as something that acts upon humans?

What is the relationship between the animate and the inanimate world?

extra sensorial garden



Tags: , ,

The Extra Sensorial Garden is a fictional garden that has been artificially created to stimulate the visitor’s sensory system and evoke strong physical experiences. There is not always a lot to see, but instead there’s a lot to be sensed. Changes in light, colour, temperature and sound create the texture of sensation in this artificial nature experience. How do you relate to nature? Do you want to be overwhelmed by it or calmed down? Or, are you simply one of those who think nature no longer exists? The performance, by coreographer and PhD candidate Mette Ingvartsen, can be experienced 6-9 June 2012 during the Burning Ice #5  at the Kaiitheater in Brussels – the festival this year has the title We- the gardeners. Artists investigating the rising tension between nature and culture, are invited, as well as  scientists and theorists.
