Tele-present wind (expanded)
Prototipoak - ' ...and the things we do'
Azkuna Zentroa, Bilbao (ES)

Until 2 September 2018

This expanded version of tele-present wind  consists of a series of 126 x/y tilting mechanical devices connected to thin dried plant stalks installed in a gallery and a dried plant stalk connected to an accelerometer installed outdoors. When the wind blows it causes the stalk outside to sway. The accelerometer detects this movement transmitting the motion to the grouping of devices in the gallery. Therefore the stalks in the gallery space move in real-time and in unison based on the movement of the wind outside.

La Fondation EDF, Paris (F)

Until 7 October 2018

tele-present water - 2011 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

Platvvorm, Deinze (B)

DUOBAAN is a duo that works in and explores the fields of contemporary music, sound art, performance and visual art. Small, compact, close to the audience, challenging for mind and senses and slightly crazy.

Digging - scenography by Lawrence Malstaf
D.I.Y - Manual for a potential future
Festspillene i Nord-Norge / Arctic Arts Festival
30 June 2018 - 20:00
FINN, Harstad (NO)

Today, our society suffers a future crisis. It seems nearly impossible to imagine a society radically different form the existing one. We are trapped in the realities of the present. The project DIY or manual for a possible future, is based on recognition that the world can not change if we are unable to think about new futures. More than ever, we therefore need utopias. 

‘The first law of thermodynamics states that energy can never be made or destroyed
Sunlight transforms into trees, 
trees become oil, 
oil is oxidised into CO2.
Nothing is lost
Matter and energy transform endlessly in various states
All matter and everything that ever will exist
exists already.' 

Performance by and with installation artist Lawrence Malstafdancer / performer Liv Hanne Haugen, playwright Tale Næss, musician / performer Amund Sjølie Sveen and director Jon Tombre

D.I.Y - Manual for a potential future

Compass 02005
ZHI Art Museum, Chengdu (ROC)

Until 12 August 2018

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.
