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.
A Feminist, Artist and Activist QUEER EXHIBITION

Opening reception 17. September, 7pm.
Small Projects is proud to present the works of South African artist Zanele Muholi. The exhibition will also include the works by the participants of a workshop that Zanele Muholi held in Oslo in June.

"The title of the exhibition Mina/Meg is from the English word ‘me’ translated into Norwegian and IsiZulu, which is one of the eleven official South African languages. Mina/Meg could be best described as a potjiekos, a South African stew. Potjiekos is when you throw all your ingre- dients in one pot and it results in a delicious and most importantly, a healthy meal.
The world has come to be known as a global village, technological advances have ensured that through a press of a button one is connected with millions of people through the use of portals such as social media. Using these mediums we are able to project ourselves for all to see us in a way we want to be perceived. However when you take away all possessions from a person, or when the lights go off at night, it is the “self” that we are left to confront and deal with. Thoughts, questions and memories flood our mind, which either leads to self-realisation, contentment or confusion and displacement.
Mina/Meg uses visual activism to explore stories related to love, intimacy, racism, xenophobia, solidarity, visibility and otherness. Just like a potjiekos, the ingredients are all thrown in one pot, but the chef is not to stir the pot. Not stirring is done to prevent the flavours from mixing, ensuring that each ingredient retains its own unique taste."
