Strange object of observation in BIM Buenos Aires 2020 /

Objeto extraño de observación #01 / copyright Luis Negrón van Grieken 2020

I understood my participation in Mirarnos a los ojos (return to) as a meta-dialogue between the very different contributions with other colleagues. At the same time I found an opportunity to generate an introspective look towards my current process with the audiovisual involving improvisation with materials that surround me, in combination with texts and sounds in real time generating an automatic writing gesture. As a result, pieces were created that reveal the rhizomatic character of cooperation at a distance. With this kind of accumulation I search for the multiplicity of a discourse without a center, but with the energy of the uncertainty from which the concept of life is fed.

symposium NEXT Imaginar el (post)presente

Next: imaginar el postpresente // imagine the post-present

When Albert Einstein said: “Imagination is more important than knowledge” he was recognizing in the imagination the possibility of making new connections, developing new concepts and innovating ways of approaching reality. His idea that “Knowledge is limited, imagination envelops the world” allows us to investigate the current crisis without appealing to nostalgia or closing ourselves to the excessive. Our time is the post-present: a becoming of instants without certainties or future promises. Immersed in its inexhaustible flow we are called to recognize in the imagination a path to deal with our humanity in crisis. Philosophy, art and technology will do the same in this five-session meeting.

Memoria fantasma // Phantom memory

Digital technology added to the fleeting nature of contemporary experiences has transformed the relationship between human beings and memory. Not only because memory has expanded around the body in an infinite number of electronic devices, but also because memories travel blurry through space and, like electronic ghosts, suddenly return to the interfaces of our technological extensions. For art and philosophy memory continues to generate dilemmas, for technology it poses challenges. This fifth edition will discuss memory in the post-present and its relationship to 21st century digital artifacts.

on Bifurcations, Combinatorial Thinking and Space Production

Since 2005 I have been working with the colombian artist – Juan Orozco as Telefante, exploring with the language of live cinema, the improvisation and the speculative in medial spectacles by appropriating a a kind of (new)media archeology.

The following lines are a re creation of texts that I wrote live in three audiovisual improvisations done in Tokyo , Seoul and Kuala Lumpur between the 13th and 27th of February 2018 creating a collage of thoughts around the unknown, the speculative and the production of knowledge:

Klangsondagen für Thomas Kling

For Klangsondangen for Thomas Kling the trombone guitar duo Matthias Muche/Nicola L. Hein, the Viennese vocal artist Christian Reiner and the video artists Luis Negrón van Grieken and Matthias Neuenhofer have processed texts from Thomas Kling’s work (in the sense of the “language installation”) visually/digital, musically and vocally and developed them into musical-spatial compositions.

small 5 min excerpt from 50 min performance in KHM Cologne 2019

The work of the writer Thomas Kling has left its mark on German literature and set new standards in many areas. In his texts, Kling often emphasizes the tonal dimension of language through the omission of vowels, the use of different dialects, the conscious accumulation of chains of sounds, and a special kind of performance without dissolving the semantics of language. He also did groundbreaking work on the communication of music/text and the musicality of poetic language.

These place the intimate interlocking of text, music, language and image at the centre of the work, thereby throwing completely new perspectives on the communication of music, image and language and the works of Kling used here.

The rehearsals will take place in the architect Raimund Abraham’s architecturally highly interesting building, in the immediate vicinity of the Thomas Kling Archive at the Hombroich rocket station in Neuss, where an additional performance will be presented on 10 October 2019.

Interview in Santa Marta

Interviews form Museo de Arte Contemporeaneo Santa Marta Colombia

It aims to create an environment of cultural and creative exchange, where a common complex artistic language is invented and used to communicate narratives, textures, colliding, combining, attracting worlds of sight and sound. The group of eight artists will work together in two different groups for three days to create an audiovisual performance that explores multidisciplinary improvisation as well as structure and narrative. The resulting artworks reflect on the themes of interculturality, cultural identity, cross cultural communication, the history of artistic thought (in different cultures) and many other philosophical topoi. The concert encompasses two Echtzeit-movies, which are improvised by a group alongside a conceptual composition that has been worked out during the rehearsals. Every group presents a piece that is in between 40-50 minutes long.

¿Cuánto hay en el Pote? – Mixed Media Installation at Art Fair Bogota / Colombia

Cecilia, ¿cuanto hay en el pote?

In a play of identities between Professor Negrón (creator of the TV show Monte su Cauchos Goodyear in the 50’s) and Luis Negrón as the author of the piece, recreate this installation a document by mixing real events with the subjective vision of the same author, by creating a place where found materials collide with personal insights of the artist and therefore reflecting likewise the complexity between TV, dictatorship and modernity in the Venezuela of the 50s.
