Liquid Architecture tour 2014

Liquid Architecture is an Australian organisation for events, exhibitions, performances and situations of the world’s leading artists working with sound.

Once a “sense-specific” festival, interested in listening and the depth of individual sound perception, Liquid Architecture is broadening its focus of concern to engage the social, cultural, political, economic as well as aesthetic frameworks in which sound takes place. Now in its 15th year, Liquid Architecture’s 2014 festival program brings together work from across a range of disciplines to audiences in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Singapore. Marking the new direction driven by curators Joel Stern and Danni Zuvela is the festival’s focus on social and conceptual questions, signalling a more sustained engagement with the discourse, sound and practices of contemporary art. This is a move into the investigation of the audible as an expression of the myriad, sometimes inaudible forces enframing, encoding, describing and producing what we hear – whether that is considered music, sound, or noise.

Talks program: public speaking, private thinking, social listening

Video Art in the Internet Era. Video Letter #2: Emile Zile

‘As part of our critical forum, Video Art in the Internet Era, we asked a series of artists, curators and video brains to send us “video letters” responding to the provocation of our critical forum: how can video artists orient themselves towards or against the complex backdrop of networked technology, smart phones and prosumers of our current world?
Riffing on the YouTube genre of “unboxing”, Emile Zile performed a “boxing” of some usurped analogue technology, the detritus of many a media artists studio.’

Lecture Almila Akdag (UVA)

A theoretical view on the nature of (high/low) art and the art market, and its relation to online art communities. Almila Akdag, from the University of Amsterdam, has received a Veni awardfrom NWO to conduct her own research for 3 years. The project is a combination of the application of various scientific methodologies (mostly social network analysis and analysis of image archives). In this lecture she will talk about DeviantArt, an online community of artists and art appreciators, that plays a nowadays role of the Salon des Refuses. She will show the history of this initiative and highlight its social and organizational structure as well as its impact on the art education for the next generation of artists.

Subtitle Kino (Färgfabriken)

http://www.fargfabriken.se

August 18-19, 2012

Across one weekend in August, Australian contemporary art initiative BUS Projects will collaborate with Färgfabriken to present an international mobile cinema and contemporary art performance space. Making use of a parked van converted into a mobile event space, SOUTH/SÖDER is curated by Jared Davis and will present a new performative, video and sound-based work in the public site of Liljeholmstorget.

This project draws from an ongoing series of mobile contemporary art and performance events initiated by BUS Projects, that have seen works presented in public sites in Melbourne (State of Design Festival, 2011), Athens (ReMap3, 2011) and Sydney (SafARI, 2012).

For SOUTH/SÖDER, Australian-Latvian artist Emile Zile will exhibit for the first time in Sweden, continuing his work in the area of cinema as a social space, media archeology and live expanded cinema. Zile will present a new cinema-based audiovisual performance that will use three versions of the King Kong story (1933, 1976, 2005) to create a compressed re-telling of this famed cinematic narrative. Extracting separate subtitle tracks from the three feature films and recombining them within one frame, this is a formal observation of the mutations and re-animations of the same storyline in different epochs. The soundtracks of the three films will be mixed live by the artist during the performance. Zile will make use of the Swedish subtitle tracks of the films.
