8.45 PM – Tempestarii
Exhibition: DISintegration, Saturday October 26 - Sunday, November 03, 2013: Open daily 10 AM - 10 PM
Within its Touch of Noir Festival, the CCR Opderschmelz Dudelange will host a series of events from 25 October–3 November directed by Gast Bouschet and Nadine Hilbert. Spanning ten days, the artists present alchemical bursts of light, sound, and space to enliven and empower the night air, and charge it with dynamic meaning. The opening performance will introduce the world premier of Bouschet and Hilbert’s video Tempestarii, accompanied by live music performance by Stephen O’Malley. This premier will be preceded by Prelude: Breath of Charybdis, a program of videos curated by Amelia Ishmael. Together, the artists will focus and direct our ideas, spirit, and energy on the complex potential and creativity of the darker months to come. Following the performance, the video and sound installation DISintegration will continue until the final night. When the events have run their course, the galleries will turn dark and silent once more. Yet the space around them will be transformed; released.
Prelude: The Breath of Charybdis
Curated by Amelia Ishmael
Presenting videos by Semiconductor, Jon Cates, and Aldo Tambellini
25 October, 8 PM
Prelude: The Breath of Charybdis draws upon the concept of the maelström to evoke a dynamic environment where currents between potential and actual, spectral and material, dark and light, and sonic and silent are raised to mountainous heights. It is not the embodied Charybdis that this program will account for, but rather her inspiration: a terrain within which tempestarii might dwell. The three videos presented—by Semiconductor, Jon Cates, and Aldo Tambellini—evidence Charybdis’s breath through mountainous waves of electromagnetic energy.
