tacit or loud: where is the knowledge in art?

Tags: , , , , ,

Symposium and festival for artistic research

Nov 28-Dec 3, 2014

Call for contributions

Tacit or Loud is an international symposium and a festival for experimental arts at the Inter Arts Center in Malmö, Sweden. Tacit or Loud focuses on intermedia art and presents several international world premieres. Inter Arts Center (IAC) is an organization within the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts located in the old Mazetti chocolate factory in Malmö. IAC provides good facilities for interdisciplinary projects, including fine arts, music and theatre, but also other arts and disciplines. For information on the venues please see  http://www.iac.lu.se.

Where is the knowledge in art?

We embrace an ecological perspective on knowledge that stretches from the tacit and embodied knowing of the artist to propositional and scientific knowledge production. Indeed, the knowledge in art can sometimes be more loud than silent. We now welcome proposals to a symposium that challenges the format of the scientific symposium. Contributions may be in artistic form (encouraged), as conference papers or in a format that combines the two. The ambition with Tacit or Loud is to merge various kinds of knowledge production in the arts with analytical modes of thinking.  Hence, it is centered around the concept of the lab as a venue for a review of artistic work and research as process.

For the complete call and more information, please see Tacit or Loud: call for presentations.

The choreography of gender in traditional Vietnamese music

This artistic research project is concerned with the function of gesture in traditional Vietnamese music. One of the aims is to investigate the social function and meaning of musical gesture in this traditional culture. The findings will be subject to a critical reading from a gender perspective. From this point of departure I will attempt to expand the expressive scope of my performance, both in the context of traditional music but also in experimental projects.
In my 25% seminar I will discuss the performance/installation Inside/Outside and the film project Seven Stories in two online papers that include video material and parts of the pieces. The seminar moves seamlessly between performance and discussion and includes a live performance of a scene from Seven Stories.

Go To Hell: gesture and sound on the threshold.
Go to Hell is an installation and performance work set on the threshold between gesture and sound and between the worlds of the dead and the living. The three musicians of the Vietnamese/Swedish group The Six Tones move through the subterranean landscape of the dismantled R1 nuclear reactor like mythological after-images. Fragments from the myth of Orpheus are double-exposed with the tale of a beheaded ghost from Vietnamese Tuong theatre. Evoked by the potential danger of the location, the audience is invited to explore an interactive and open form installation that relates to ancient myth and its bearings on experimental art of today. The choreographies and video art all relate to the gestural and conceptual content of Toccata Orpheus, a composition for guitar solo by the German composer Rolf Riehm.

Choreography: Marie Fahlin
Sound and light installation: Gerhard Eckel
Video and sound installation by Anders Elberling och Henrik Frisk
Video by Jörgen Dahlqvist
Music by Rolf Riehm, Henrik Frisk, Richard Karpen and The Six Tones
