Lawrence Malstaf
Compass 02005
ZHI ART MUSEUM
25 April 2018
until 12 August 2018
ZHI ART MUSEUM, Chengdu (ROC)

ZHI ART MUSEUM is pleased to present the exhibition Open, celebrating the long-awaited official inauguration of the museum which marks a new cultural signpost in southwest China. Curated by ZHANG Ga and co-presented by ZHI ART MUSEUM and Chronus Art Center (CAC).

To open is also to make ready for adventure, to lose orientation in order to obtain cognition of a different dimension. Compass 02005 by Lawrence Malstaf is precisely such an uncanny apparatus that exercises its own machine logic on the participant. Perhaps here a power play is at work to tease out the conundrum of the human-machine interaction that questions the popular assumption and begs for an ethical reappraisal.

Annelies Van Parys
Het Kanaal
27 April 2018 - 20:30
Ter Dilft, Bornem (B)

On a beach near Calais a young refugee prepares himself to swim across the Channel, towards his new future. On the English side, on the chalk cliffs of Beachy Head, a (transsexual) woman bids life goodbye; in a few instants she will jump to her death. 

The new text by author Gaea Schoeters is mirrored by recently recovered Shakespeare-text. Composer Annelies Van Parys uses the Shakespeare-text as a libretto for a cycle of songs, which set the refugee theme in a historical perspective. The soprano is also the intermediary between past and present, audience and play; via other spoken Shakespeare fragments she sets the story in a different perspective, turning the personal stories into a sharp reflection of society, both in the 16th century and today – because the similarities are, alas, striking.

EXHALE
LAWRENCE MALSTAF - LIV HANNE HAUGEN - PER MARTINSEN
WHEN ART MEETS SCIENCE - DAG VAN DE DANS
28 April 2018
until 29 April 2018
BOZAR, Brussels (B)

During the ‘I Love Science’ festival BOZAR devotes three whole days to an investigation into the links between art and science. 

EXHALE (performance - installation)
A large inflatable is constantly changing shape, struggling with its environment or adapting to it? Visitors can sign up to visit the inside of this gigantic lung and witness some excerpts of the EXHALE- performance.

Lawrence Malstaf - Per Martinsen - Liv Hanne Haugen, EXHALE, 02016

EXHALE  starts from a movement we all share: breathing. This process of inhaling and exhaling as an expression of our physical and mental states is in constant change and usually unconscious. Yet it can also be a portal to control psychosomatic phenomena like stress and anxiety. Breath connects mind and body, the yogi said a 1000 years ago. However in these eco-calyptic times where fear is the best selling currency, science tell us about earlier mass extinctions and the cycles of life in our earthly atmosphere. With scientific prose, dance and electronic sounds, the audience is invited inside a large inflated lung where performers and visitors become one and the invisible air is shared as a physical and tangible medium. ‘Breathing is the first and the last thing you will do, you will breath about 10000 liters of air today. Without breath, no life.’

Tele-present water
1 2 3 DATA - Fondation EDF
4 May 2018
until 6 October 2018
Fondation EDF, Paris (F)

Opening:
3 May 2018 - 18:00 -21:00

tele-present water - 2011 by David Bowen draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. The wave intensity and frequency collected from the buoy is scaled and transferred to the mechanical grid structure, resulting in a simulation of the physical effects caused by the movement of water from this distant unknown location. This work physically replicates a remote experience and makes observation of the activity of an isolated object, otherwise lost at sea, possible through direct communication
