Inject, samedi 20:30 Cimatic festival in Brussels!

http://www.cimatics.com/festival2009/program.php?id=51

inject3.jpgSound ON/OFF II dives into cinematographic and narrative principles with the Canadian Herman Kolgen who performs his INJECT project, a compelling live but abstract narration. The Berlin based collective Ogino Knauss is invited for an artist-in-residence with their project The Plot. They create an audiovisual dialogue with Brussels as mediated city resulting in a performance. Oh Yes is a YouTube based performance from Basement Jaxx visualist Max Hattler and Noriko Okaku. And Demolecularisation aka projetsinge bring "the story of a piece of data", a noisy and abstract. Both on Friday 27th with Sound ON/OFF I and on Saturday 28th with the ON/OFF II program, Cimatics goes back to its roots. With audiovisual performances mainly revolving around the image/sound relation, but also live cinema and more experimental acts, we engage with the contemporary art center Les Brigittines focusing on performance art.

Performance at 20:30
Inject by Herman Kolgen

Audio/Video performance in HD + Quadra Audio: A human body is injected in a cistern.
Over the course of 45 minutes, the pressure of the liquid exerts upon him multiple neurosensorial transformations. From his epidermal fiber to his nervous system, he reacts to influxes of viscosity in this liquid chamber. His cortex, lacking oxygen, gradually loses all notions of the real. Like a human guinea pig: a matter-body whose psychological states are the object of kinetik tableaux, of singular temporal spaces. It was in 2008 that Herman Kolgen initiated the INJECT project. The genesis of the principal visual material for this project was a shoot, in an immense cistern filled with water, which lasted six consecutive days. Yso had to be immersed for over eight hours a day in the glass tank, oscillating between weightlessness and lack of oxygen. With the aid of various digital video recording and photographic systems Kolgen assembled many series of temporal sequences, images that he then assembled into a flexible and modular body.
