krysning/пересечение/conflux - Signe Lidén
During her field trips in the surroundings of Kirkenes and Nikel, Signe Lidén ‘sound-measured’ the border-zone. She walked across pastures, mountains as well as manmade landscapes, military zones, harbours, mining areas and settlements, determining her route by shooting an arrow. By applying this unorthodox research method – a bow and arrow with recording devices and a weather balloon with a camera, she explored the coincidental in the ‘points of references’ on which knowledge systems and worldviews are based. The resulting work is a performance of 30 minutes. There are 3 performances in Nikel on Saturday 11 October, at 11:00, 11:45 and 12:30; each can host an audience of about 30. Technical support by BEK and Roar Sletteland.
Signe Lidén (NO) is an artist based in Bergen. Her installations and performances examine man-made landscapes and their resonance. She is interested in how places and their histories resonate: in memory, through narratives and various materials, and as ideological manifestations and political territories.
