Anna Birch

As a theatre director, Anna Birch directs works often created for and in found spaces. Here, she explores the effects of digital capture, in particular video, on live work, and through a study of her production Wollstonecraft Live!, she considers the role of the camera in the archiving and documenting this kind of work.

Excerpt from Candy Darling • full crediting details are at www.candydarling.be

Silvia Defrance

This excerpt from Defrance’s short feature Candy Darling takes inside part of the psychological world that Steve Shagollan of Variety magazine called a Freudian Alice in Wonderland for adults with an ominous landscape. Its quirkiness and idiosyncratic vision move beyond received narratives of sex, trauma and consequences to ask visual questions about the nature of what remains in our psyches, our mirrors, our bathroom sinks and on our hands after encounter and survival.

ArtworkVol. 2Curatorial-Editorial Statement and Introduction

Yvon Bonenfant

The second volume of Experiments and Intensities takes us on a journey through and around an impossibly utopian notion – a sort of opposite of the experience of the traumatic, which we’re calling ‘ex-trauma’. We’re seeking not the expression of, or recovery from, trauma – though these themes certainly come up – but rather, we wonder whether the traumatic has an inverse, and if so, whether artists can help us identify it.

Eating Pipe

A work in sound • artist: Mikael Eriksson

Mikael Eriksson

In Eating Pipe, Mikael Eriksson creates transformations from speech to screams to animals to guts. Attempting to inject piss and shit and spunk into the world of digital sounds, he brings a strange sense of fun, while pursuing his own sense of the beautiful. The still images, from a recent gastroscopy, explore Eriksson’s own recent medical explorations of mysterious pains – apparently, all was as it should have been.

Laura Maes

These are the sounds of Vasco Delneste, recorded by artist Laura Maes in 2010. No sounds are electronically processed or altered, and not a single sound is used twice, even though some sound similar. Maes structures them electronically: they paint a portrait that is simultaneously deeply human and unearthly.

A work in sound • sound artist: Sirpa Jokinen

Sirpa Jokinen

The soundwork is based on recordings made inside the Hagia Sofia museum in Istanbul during its opening hours. It is an attempt to capture the special acoustic situation inside the building. The recording locations are changed between the second balcony and the ground floor under the main dome. We here the guts, the very entrails, of the Hagia resonate with a sense of elegant expansiveness and infrasound boom.

Melanie Chilianis

The piece MCVox by Melanie Chilianis was initially part of Danish artist Michael Chang’s collaborative exhibition Fragments (Arnot Art Museum, New York State, April 2011). It uses vocal sources from Melanie Chilianis and Michael Chang in various degrees of intelligibility and duration. It was made during a particularly bad phase of chronic illness (migraine and epileptic seizures), when everyday communication was often difficult and visual and aural perceptions were distorted.

Yvon Bonenfant

Bonenfant directed a process during which the ensemble Galloping Cuckoos explored a range of skin sensations associated with attempted ex-traumatic states and then translated these into postures and ‘walks’. These were then walked through three cities: Paris, London and Cardiff, suggesting other ways of somatic being to passersby, sometimes almost invisibly.

Room With A View is a kind of film made by Iris Garrelfs as part of an Urbania Collective residency at Park-a-moor in the Lake District, 2008. Made possible by Grizedale Art, with Harold Offeh responding to internal and external spaces. A whimsical meditation on expansive vision and the interplay between inner and outer spaces, where a prosaic compost toilet gives an in to the quiet small experiences that surround and suffuse us.

This short dance theatre film stages fracture and reconciliation in relationship. Exploring representations of ability and disability, it is an experiment in integrated practice and equal collaboration, where the dancers choreographed and operated the cameras. It challenges us to think differently about ability, relationship and pleasure.

A work in sound • sound art: Ali Cocks

Ali Cocks

Semiotic Stomach features Ali Cocks’ digestive sounds recorded internally with a hydrophone. These recordings were then incorporated into a larger sonic narrative: a human and British journey through birth, infancy, town nightlife, marginalised queer city happenings and normative supermarket visits. The turmoil present in the digestive sounds can be heard as a response to the narrative of the social body.

The Sonification of Morecambe Bay is a video about observation; about how, using time-lapse photography, durational events in the environment can be brought within the limits of our perception. Weather data captured concurrently with the images control elements of the soundtrack. An altered and heightened engagement with time and landscape.

This short video essay is a hybrid form fusing critical and creative heuristic responses to hearing loss and tinnitus. The sounds are created out of a palette of described tinnitus noise; the visions are representative of synaesthetic response to sound, and the text charts a journey through all of these, throwing up interesting psychophysical and aesthetic questions about ‘ideal’ life experience.

Kathleen Irwin

After acting as producer, co-maker and scenographer on a site-derived performance work in an abandoned mental hospital, Irwin received a number of emails that problematized its history, and shed light on human engagement with this site – a site interwoven with so many intimate narratives that explore the space between mental health, the ‘state’, authority and the personal. After time moves on, after ‘healing’, if it comes, what might be next?

Essi Kausalainen

Winter Garden is a performance made for the camera. It was filmed in a winter day on ice, near the city of Kuopio, Finland. Conjoining beauty and horror, strength and fragility, the tropical and the Arctic co-exist, and the tension between ‘striving for’ and ‘striving against’ is set in stark relief as blooms freeze.

In Arlander’s words: With a lilac scarf on my shoulders I stand in the sea, take water in a jar, and pour it back to the sea on the northern shore of Harakka Island, Helsinki, approximately once a week before sunset between 26th January 2008 and 24th January 2009 during the Chinese year of the rat.
