AN INDEX OF COLLISIONS
26.-31. October 2016
opening reception/performance, 26. October, 8pm
For this year's Insomnia Festival, Small Projects will present An Index of Collisions, a collaborative project by Bergen based artists Roar Sletteland, Thorolf Thuestad and Øystein Nesheim.
An Index of Collisions is an interdisciplinary, collective art project that bring together installation art, music, stage arts, text and film. The core group of the project consist of three people. In addition there are contributors with specifically defined tasks. The project is developed as a slow modular process where a range of components are created independently and presented in varying combinations and constellations as the project evolves.
The project thus consists of " collisions " between formats , expressions , disciplines and aesthetics. The idea is that, when combining these elements without any kind of hierarchy between them, unexpected and interesting results will arise.
More than just a common artistic platform or theme, the foundation of the project is an artistic procedure where form as well as content arises as a result of the combinations or collisions.
So far the project has been presented as exhibitions, concerts as well as a “happening” all of which has created new uses and new meanings to the art elements that have participated. With this letter we wish to pursue further exhibitions in a gallery format featuring the installation objects that have been created during the life of the project.
KULTURNATTA TROMSØ 2016
7. October 2016, 8pm
For the 2016 version of Kulturnatta Tromsø (Cultural Evening Tromsø), Tokyo Twins will be performing at Small Projects. The performance will start at 8pm.
Tokyo Twins is an audio-visual art collaboration between the Tromsø based artists Anne Ødegård and Simon Daniel Tegnander Wenzel. They work within performance and visual art forms rooted in electronic music, technology and sub-culture.
Live, Tokyo Twins reflect a musical echo from trance, rave, ragging culture and industrial through their self-proclaimed genre «Eurodeth» inspired by the electronic music of the 90s and 00s. Moving seamlessly through emotions of ecstasy and despair, Tokyo Twins’ lyrics take on a cosmic narrative where personal experiences and emotions are transformed into mythologies in a fairytale-like expression.
In 2015 Tokyo Twins made a site specific live performance in the infamous Emanuel Vigeland Mausoleum, a meditation on creation of inner landscapes and how technology can be used to understand nature in new ways. Earlier this year, Tokyo Twins premiered the video piece ELEMENT, described as: «a magic-realistic documentary about identity, blurring the lines between fiction and reality» based on the artists own experiences of growing up in decentralized, rural areas in southern Norway.
Currently, they are working on a clothing line using natural materials and dyes, and embroidery, in addition to creating handmade wellness products under brand HEX, inspired by traditional remedies and witchcraft.
At Kulturnatta, Tokyo Twins will perform brand new material from their upcoming album «Let be Phantasee» at Small Projects.
