The performative installation Incorporate, inspired by antique anatomical drawings, is a framework reflecting on the human anatomy and the potential beauty found in its detailed architecture. Within Incorporate Marhaug and Motland explore the sound of the internal surroundings of the voice, the body, and try to uncover what is happening behind the scenes when a voice is producing sound – when air is being pressed out of the lungs and blood is murmuring through the veins. A complex composition of organs continuously executes vital tasks for us, yet in spite of the indispensability of our insides it is still the outside that is the source of pride and shame. The raw material has mainly been collected from the artists’ own bodies.
The audience is invited in to a spatial composition of loudspeakers and cables which also serves as a multidimensional canvas for Greg Pope’s video projections. In this performance the installation will be used as an instrument and as a fellow player, manipulated by the artists. However, the installation still has its own expression and mechanisms which the artists don’t have any control over – like the body.
There will be three more interventions throughout the week where musicians Øyvind Torvund, Espen Sommer Eide and Siv Øyunn Kjenstad will play with and inside Incorporate.
