D.I.Y - Manual for a potential future by STATEX
LAWRENCE MALSTAF - AMUND SJØLIE SVEEN - LIV HANNE HAUGEN - TALE NÆSS - JON TOMBRE
FESTIVAL TRAJECTOIRES
22 January 2019
until 23 January 2019
Stereolux, Nantes (F)

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. 

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

FESTIVAL TRAJECTOIRES
22 January 2019
until 23 January 2019
Stereolux, Nantes (F)

Nemo Observatorium 02002 - Styrofoam particles are blown around in a big transparent PVC cylinder by 5 strong fans. Visitors can take place one by one on the armchair in the middle of the whirlpool or observe from the outside. On the chair, in the eye of the storm it is calm and safe.Spectacular at first sight, this installation turns out to mesmerise as a kind of meditation machine. One can follow the seemingly cyclic patterns, focus on the different layers of 3D pixels or listen to its waterfall sound. One could call it a training device, challenging the visitor to stay centred and find peace in a fast changing environment. After a while the space seems to expand and one's sense of time deludes. Impressive and hypnotic.

Shrink 01995
Festival Trajectoires
22 January 2019
until 23 January 2019
Stereolux, Nantes (F)

Shrink 01995 - Two large, transparent plastic sheets and a device that gradually sucks the air out from between them leave the body vacuum-packed and vertically suspended. The transparent tube inserted between the two surfaces allows the person inside the installation to regulate the flow of air. As a result of the increasing pressure between the plastic sheets, the surface of the packed body gradually freezes into multiple micro-folds. For the duration of the performance the person inside moves slowly and changes positions, which vary from an almost embryonic position to one resembling a crucified body.

At Festival Trajectoires there will be 6 Shrinks and the bodies of 6 performers.

Stormopkomst
Westrand, Dilbeek (B)

27 January 2019 from 13:30 until 18:00

The spectators enter a space in which an elongated, fenced in box stands. The floor is covered with white textile. A series of lights hangs very low above this white surface, like in a brooding box for chickens. In the box lie 300 little toy dogs. These are stuffed animals with an optic eye in the middle of their foreheads. When this eye senses a change in light (and this happens every time a movement takes place within their sight) the dogs roll over; their tales make a circular movement and they produce sounds that could be described as ‘barking laughs’. The reaction of one dog sets a second dog in motion; these two dogs then set another couple of dogs in motion, etcetera. A group of rolling, laughing dogs has originated in the box; an uncontrollable mass that cannot be silenced nor stopped.

Double Compass / Solo Exhibition
TETEM
31 January 2019
until 5 May 2019
TETEM, Enschede (NL)

Compass is an orientation machine to wear around your waist. It directs you left and right while walking. It guides you through virtual corridors, rooms and doors programmed in the physical exhibition space, or any location. The apparatus imposes an attraction or repulsion on your waist, like you are in a magnetic field. You can explore this environment and discover a tactile architecture. The machine is programmed to make you follow an invisible map but you can choose between resisting to the machine or giving in and letting yourself be guided.

For the solo exhibition Double Compass at TETEM, Lawrence Malstaf developed a second machine, both Compasses will not only follow an invisible map, but will also interact with each other.
