During OFF HIGHWAYs residency at IAC they are developing their odd performance concert format for voice and loop-pedal. The research takes place within the framework of their ongoing experimental sound piece “fog & fox tour” in which they tell poetic and morbid fables with non(common)sensmoral.

In OFF HIGHWAY’s second voice journey the search continues towards the outskirts and insignificances of the city/body. We are navigating by a triangular map with one of its tips pointing down: we turn our burning blind eyes toward the daylight, broaden our trembling leaking mouth openings, rise on unsteady backbones and reach towards: ?

Viewable with a VR viewer, Axel Straschnoy’s VR film Detective (2017) takes us on a journey through Kiasma’s newly opened ARS17 exhibition on how The internet and digitalization have radically altered our everyday lives. In Straschnoy’s VR film the art and our whole experience of the exhibition are somehow radically different than in real life, however. What has happened? And what does it mean for us to experience it here in Malmö?
ARS17 is a major exhibition of international contemporary art on the theme of digital revolution. The exhibition will showcase artists of the new millennium and offer a fresh approach to contemporary art by also expanding the viewing experience into the online realm. Read more about ARS17 here.
Detective can be experienced in the Café, 4th floor at IAC. May 30th -June 2nd, 14-16, or by appointment: info[at]iac.lu.se
