Performance of Mats LINDSTRÖM : " Low Fidelity" (2016) for live electronics
Low Fidelity  explores the phenomenon in which electronic circuits are forced to work outside their normal range. The sounds are generated from electronic feedback  loops with saturated amplifiers.  The circuitry becomes the score and variations comes with the lack of control when the instrument start to behave unpredictable. The composition is not an attempt to recreate anything you could meet in nature…..
Low Fidelity was commissioned by choreographer Anna Koch/Weld with support from the Arts Council of Sweden.

Performance of ORLAN with Loré LIXENBERG : " Petition Against Death"
 

ORLAN



ORLAN is one of the most famous french artist internationally known.She creates sculptures, photographs, performances, videos, and videogames, augmented reality, using scientific and medical technics like surgery and biogenetic. Those are only mediums for her, the idea prevails and the materiality pursues.
ORLAN makes her own body the medium, the raw material, and the visual support of her work. It takes place as the “public debate”. She is a major figure of the body art and of “carnal art” as she used to define it in her 1989 manifesto.
Her commitment and her liberty are an integral part of her work. She defends innovative, interrogative and subversive positions, in her entire artwork. ORLAN changes constantly and radically the datas, which disrupt conventions, and “ready-made thinking”. She is opposed to the natural determinism, social and politic and to all domination forms, male supremacy, religion, cultural segregation and racism, etc.
Always mixed with humor, often-on parody or even grotesque, her provocative artworks can shock because she shakes up the pre-established codes.

William ENGLISH “HEATED GLOVES”
experimental documentary (2015, 120', english speaking) about the uncompromising life of a radical, eccentric inventor, here explored through archival materials and 16mm film.



"Captain Maurice Seddon, an inventor and eccentric in the great English tradition, made electrically heated clothing for 'paraplegics, sclerotics, arthritics, rheumatics, the poor and landscape painters'. The details of his extremely modest, uncompromising way of life are here unpicked through a rich weave of incredible archival TV appearances from around the world (he featured on, amongst others, The David Letterman Show) plus very touching 16mm and mobile phone footage shot by friend and directorWilliam English. Heated Gloves evokes Two Years at Sea and Grey Gardens, whilst highlighting the codes of television reportage and remaining in and of itself very special and unique - just like its subject."
