“Þóka” (2011)

About: Art film by German artist, Maria Dabow.
Currently exhibited at Ostrale ´012.
Earlier exhibitions: Kunsthal Charlottenborg’s spring exhibition 2012.

Due to current exhibition I am not able to present the video publicly.

Description from Kunsthal Charlottenborg’s catalog: The work, Þoka (2011), is a super-8 film, shot in black and white, which studies the interplay between appearance and disappearance and the shift from the familiar to what seems unrecognisable and perceptual ambiguity. The quaint, painterly defectiveness of the footage is also reflected in the sounds. The grain of the film seems to crackle. A low, humming noise offers a sinister hint, while the song of the Loreley interferes with the image and provides a heterotopia situated beyond the unequivocal and lends an uncanny atmosphere without narration.

Role: Soundtrack.

“Sfære” (2011)

About: A mirror sphere hangs from the ceiling. The soundscape of the environment around the sphere is subjected to a special reverberation, which has been modeled after seismic measurements of the subterranean decay after a large earthquake in Bolivia. As a natural consequence, the sound from the sphere itself  - as it becomes a part of this soundscape -  receives the same treatment causing an ever evolving feedback drone on the natural frequencies of Earth.

The illusion of the individual as separate from the rest of the world is broken in a visual and auditory fusion of the sphere’s surroundings to one. Earth engages in a dynamic dialog with the venue – a dialog through which the consequences of the actions of the individual appear obviously significant for the whole.
