VERITÈ / ANDERE RÄUME

is an intervention in a private forest at Germany-Belgium’s border consisting in custom mades boxes that alludes to the peep show apparatus from the 17th century.

By using radio receivers in tuned in random frequencies an acoustical interruption of the natural surrounding creating a surreal situation.

By installing a high reflective mirror wall in the forest, now the interruption would be in the visual level by creating a repetition of the seen taking reference to the text Foucault’s observations in his publication “Other Spaces” and his thoughts on a idea of heterotopias

These works were showed as part of the FIELDSITE Project of Achim Mohné‘s and the Seminar Unsite Temporalities at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne in der the border between Germany and Belgium.

candens lilium

2013

“Medieval instruments and monastic singing form a touching conclusion and at the same time the highlight of the concert series. Together with the Venezuelan light artist Luis Negrón van Grieken, whose entirely material and visible art is always aimed at the invisible, psychic, the traverse flutist Norbert Rodenkirchen and the singers Sabine Lutzenberger and Lydia Brotherton open contemplative spaces. Visitors will experience transcendent sounds and artistic lighting installations by a great artist.”
Curated by Benedict Hecht und Georg Dietzler
Sabine Lutzenberger, Voice. Lydia Brotherto, Voice. Norvert Rodenkirchen, Old Flute, Arph.

“One hides what you do not want it to be seen, one conceals the obvious, one disguises himself what he wants to be perceived as something other that what it is. To hide by silence, conceals actions, disguised by words. It is revealed by behaviour, or in the speech. Arguably dissimulation is a lie in action…”

In a 45 minute performance the whole space of mapa teatro is converted into a encyclopedical flow of references without any logic of order and accumulation and interference becomes the protagonist of a journey through TELEFANTE’s archive from the last years.

{ñ} is a video concert divided in three parts each one subdivided in different sections which propose to rewrite (in a poetic and metaphorical way) „Diderot & D‘Alambert‘s Encyclopedia“ written in the XVII century and which is one of the most important works of French enlightenment.
{ñ} is located at the intersection of two couples of concepts. The first one related to an intimate approach: photography as selection and also as experimental activity (the laboratory). The second more public related to theater and phantasmagoria.
{ñ} wants to works mainly with the more than 2000 plates that accompany the Encyclopedia. We believe that the plates/illustrations are not mere supplement to the written explanations, but an important and outstanding part of the whole project of the Encyclopedia.

[DEUTSCH] Musik von Juan Bautista Cabanilles, Antonio de Cabezon & Udo Moll Videoarbeit zu den Caprichos von Francisco de Goya y Lucientes Das transmediale Projekt Tientos y Lucientes schafft eine neue Perspektive auf zeitgenössische Musik, indem es sich zwar klar auf historische Vorlagen bezieht, diese aber aus ihrem ursprünglichen Kontext löst und sie damit verfügbar macht als Kristallisationspunkte und Inspirationsquellen für neue Kompositionen, für elektronisch manipulierte Annäherungen und Improvisationen. Zusammen mit dem Cembalisten Leon Berben, dem live-sampling-Spezialisten Ivo Bol und dem Videokünstler Luis Negron werden die leidenschaftlichen Improvisatoren des mollschen gesetzes, ausgehend von spanischer Cembalomusik des 17. Jahrhunderts, einen goyaesk-dunkel leuchtenden Abend kreieren zwischen historischer Aufführungspraxis und aktuellster Soundtechnologie, eine fantastische Reflexion über das Neue im Alten, die Flüchtigkeit des Authentischen und den Schlaf der Vernunft.

the psychogeographical world of poet and painter William Blakes is the starting point for the invisible framework of this project. His longest and last project Jerusalem: The Emanation of the Giant Albion tells the genesis with hermetical and alquimistic approach. The concepts and parallels to quantic physics of this story are taken to generate the metaphysical world of this piece
