Happy to announce the premiere of a new collaborative project by Mariska de Groot, Matteo Marangoni and Dieter Vandoren ‘Beacons’.
Presented at TETEM Kunstruimte, Stroinksbleekweg 16, Enschede
from November 26th 2015 to January 24th 2016
Opening December 3rd 2015, 17:00 h
Our digital devices communicate between each other through protocols that lie outside of the range of human perception. Beacons is an environment formed by a network of nodes scattered in space that interact between each other exclusively through signals that can be perceived by the human senses. Rotating planes of light, bursts of sound pulses, shimmering plasma tubes and a swarm of electronic creatures will compose an artificial ecosystem generating patterns of events in the space surrounding the observer.
Beacons is a project especially conceived for the Media Lab space of Tetem Kunstruimte by Mariska De Groot, Matteo Marangoni and Dieter Vandoren within a broader research trajectory investigating the potential of autonomous distributed objects to create spatial compositions with sound and light.
The project is made possible with the support of the Creative Industries Fund NL, Stichting Stokroos and Stroom Den Haag.
CineChine will be part of group exhibiton ‘Lichtjaren’ in Kunstfort Vijfhuizen curated by Stichting Polderlicht.
The exhibition will show a selection of light-art of pioneers from the ’60, ’70 and ’80 combined with very recent works, showing non-chronologically how this art disciplin started from Spielerei has grown to a grown-up art form.
With works of : Mariska de Groot | Jozef van der Horst | Eun Kyoung Hwang | Albert In ‘t Veld | Peter F. van Loon | Willem Marijs | François Morellet | Matthijs Munnik | Koji Ogura | Hans Schork | Thierry Ysebaert | Margot Zanstra | Peter Zegveld | Johan van Zutphen
The opening of the exhibition will take place on sunday 4th of october from 15.00 until 18.00 o’clock.
Last months I developed a new hobby and workout.
I’m proud to announce that friday 25th of September, at the official opening of TodaysArt, I’ll be on stage Swinging a Speaker for Gordon Monahan’s Speaker Swinging, a performance from 1982 [such a great year ]
Gordon Monahan’s works for piano, loudspeakers, video, kinetic sculpture, and computer controlled sound environments span from avant garde concert music to multimedia installations and sound art. He juxtaposes the quantitative and qualitative aspects of natural acoustical phenomena with elements of media technology, environment, architecture, popular culture, and live performance.
For the opening of TodaysArt 2015, Monahan will perform his famous work from 1982, ‘Speaker Swinging’. This work for electronic tone generators and human speaker swingers is a hybrid of science, music, and performance art, in which minimalistic trance music based on the Doppler effect contrasts with issues central to performance art, such as physical struggle and ‘implied threat’. For this occasion Mariska de Groot, Matteo Marangoni, Dieter Vandoren and Philip Vermeulen of iii will be the speaker swingers.
The opening performance is free to attend.
The installation CineChine from Mariska de Groot will transform the beautiful industrial white cube of Kunstenlab in Deventer into a light-to-sound experience from the 13th of september until the 7th of november.
The opening will take place at 13th of september during the ‘Open Monumentendag’.
Location: Scheepvaartstraat 12, Deventer
Entrance is free.
