HI GUYS!! please, ikke glem meg
Johanna Karlsson, Ingerid Frang
12 October 2020 - 21 October 2020
‘HI GUYS!! please, ikke glem meg’ is a performance, an installation, a space for today's potentially disappearing buildings, ideals, memories and things. In this project, Johanna Karlsson and Ingerid Frang explore the human vulnerability in a time where control over our lives and our identities is constantly growing. In the performance, the audience follows two characters who, quite uncritically, strive to preserve anything that might be lost.

For this project the newly formed league Utopidepartementet departs from Oliver Messiaen’s piece Quartet for the End of Time - written in a concentration camp in 1940. With newly composed music and images the musicians and artists meditate upon what it means to be at the end of time in relation to today’s environmental crisis.
Jihad Jane Bootcamp
Johanne Marie Aagaard Laache
5 October 2020 - 11 October 2020
'Jihad Jane Bootcamp' is a performative investigation into radicalization seen through the lens of self-orchestration and body worship. Laache will, during her week-long residency at the IAC, film and produce a series of videos in the style of follow-along exercise videos on youtube that over time become increasingly ardent and militaristic. In this work, Laache explores the extremities of deference and devotion through a fictional fitness-influencer, Jihad Jane.
Transmediating meaning
Janneke Schoene
1 September 2020 - 31 May 2021
‘Transmediating meaning’ analyses audio guides as complex transmedial formats with multiple media shifts: Visual objects, sculptures, paintings, etc., are translated into spoken text whose characteristics, perceptions and readings differ from the ‘original’. An examination of these differences is crucial for the democratic application of audio guides for different visitor groups such as visually impaired visitors that are widely excluded from the art discourse.

From Soul to Other
Martine Flor
1 September 2020 - 28 November 2020
This project seeks to investigate technology and its influence on reading and narration in the construction of a coherent and autonomous self. Departing from a Lacanian understanding of language, it seeks to trace the impact of a digital Other on subjectivation: what would the impact of a digital Other completely indifferent of its subjects be? An Other that lacks what is fundamentally human, such as temporality, death and empathy? An Other that repeals the distance between self and market necessary for critical judgment?
The Tactilist
Mariella Louise Otto, Daniel Wade
7 August 2020 - 27 September 2020
'The Tactilist’ is a video installation, departing from the 1921 Manifesto ‘Il Tattilismo’, written by fascist, futurist and poet F.T. Marinetti. Considering Marinetti’s ambivalent subjects of intimacy, touch, violence and ‘the imaginable’ – Mariella Louise Otto uses the futurist ideology as an example of the endless possibilities and powers embedded in language and poetry, as well as a tool for exposing current tendencies within the socio-political.
The Expected
Carolina Sandvik
5 August 2020 - 27 September 2020
'The Expected' is a stop motion animated short film with an estimated length of 15 minutes. The plot revolves around a couple and a failed pregnancy. The imagery and themes are heavily influenced by genre cinema, such as body horror and psychological thrillers. A fairytale and a slow-paced relationship drama set in a confined domestic space where loneliness and violence are equally threatening.
Red Room Project / Make Sound Residency
Julie Nymann, Signe Raunkjær Holm
7 December 2020 - 17 February 2021
The ‘Red Room Project’ explores the displacement between a live performance and the echo thereof, in the performance ‘Red Room Institute’ and the sound installation ‘Use It Well’ (working titles). Inspired by the social phenomenon of ‘dancing epidemics’ in which groups of people were said to contaminate each other with compulsive dancing, the ‘Red Room Project’ investigates relations between audience, performers and the role of the directing voice.
Instrumental Bodies / Make Sound Residency
Lars Kynde, Soeine Bac
9 November 2020 - 4 December 2020
Danish composer and inventor Lars Kynde and Canadian visual artist and dancer Soeine Bac meet in the Make Sound residency to explore their shared interest in integration of sound and movement. They will together transform the space into a large mechanical acoustic instrument-body of strings and steel, which Soeine Bac will explore in relation to her own body by dancing inside it and altering the timbres with her body weight.
Hestia
Hans Carlsson
21 September 2020 - 26 October 2020
Hans Carlsson’s project is Hestia’s story about herself. It is based on a written monologue, where a bitter and neglected goddess tells about the self but also about the history of the home from antiquity to the present day. She does this to remind us that myths and rituals invade the idea of domesticity also in our present time. In addition to a study circle open to the public at IAC, 'Hestia' takes the form of an exhibition at antikvariat Anti in Malmö.
Blackout
Tim Bishop
30 March 2020 - 6 April 2020
'Blackout' is a unique and immersive new performance work for one person at a time by artist Tim Bishop. The work takes place in total darkness and uses spatial audio and haptic feedback to create a multi-sensory and evocative environment for a powerfully self-reflective experience. An unseen voice and a physical guide encourage participants on an introspective journey, exploring both virtual spaces and the physical room through 3D sound and touch.
Deus Ex Machina
Lola Ajima, Ingvild Skandsen, Lasse Munk
3 March 2020 - 25 April 2020
Lola Ajima, Ingvild Skandsen and Lasse Munk all co-founders of the soundartist collective 'Deus Ex Machina', all work in different ways on the acousmonium.

For the Make Sound residency, they make use of the opportunity to have the acousmonium for a longer period, to do research in spatialisation on their respective styles of acousmatic music, preparing for the concert.
Thousand Times Yes
Essi Kausalainen, Marja Ahti, Jenny Kalliokulju
9 March 2020 - 15 March 2020
'Thousand Times Yes' is a philosophical, haunting and poetic investigation of the limits and possibilities of language, communication, space, and the body. The piece is a collaboration between composer and musician Marja Ahti, librettist Jenny Kalliokulju and director Essi Kausalainen moving fluently across different genres and disciplines. Through its multidisciplinary and intergenerational working group the performance challenges the concept of opera and its aesthetics, as well as its hierarchical tradition.
Creativities transcending boundaries
Anna Houmann, Eva Saether
16 March 2020 - 20 March 2020
The project ”Creativities transcending boundaries” aims at mapping out current research in creativity, within music and broader aspects.

TOUCH
Emilie Gregersen, Karis Zidore, Naya Moll
10 February 2020 - 22 February 2020
TOUCH by Emilie Gregersen is a choreographic work navigating through touch and its sensuous distortions. In the quivering between the heartfelt and the mechanical, an absurdity and ironic drama arises where human perceptions of touch are being distorted in a metallic universe. TOUCH is created in collaboration with sound artist, Karis Zidore and dramaturge/choreographic consultant Naya Moll.
The Tactilist
Mariella Louise Otto, Daniel Wade
30 January 2020 - 2 February 2020
‘The Tactilist’ explores fragments of the manifesto ‘Tactilism’ written by futurist and fascist, F. T. Marinetti, in 1921. In this new video work to be recorded by Mariella Louise Otto, (in collaboration with Daniel Wade), the protagonist is giving a speech or reading while also re-enacting movements used in massage, although here on an imaginary body – merging a deconstruction of the manifesto with something close to choreography.
oracle
Justine Maxelon, Caroline Daish, Michel Yang
3 February 2020 - 10 February 2020
‘Oracle’ is an eyes-closed body-voice improvisation practice reading diverse spaces: train stations, parks, institutions, forests, public libraries, urban gardens and private living spaces. It interacts with these surroundings through instant sound and movement composition and expands the boundaries between individual emotional expressions and shared public space. Each practice session is unique to the moment and context. ‘oracle’ was created at the end of 2015 as a need to collaborate, vocalise and heal.
Black Bird
Maria Naidu
2 January 2020 - 7 January 2020
In early January, Maria Naidu will return to the IAC to continue working on her solo dance performance which is inspired by the Japanese photographer Masahisa Fukase, his book Karasu (Corps), its basic thematic and the raven (species). The work revolves around Fukase’s central themes: isolation and tragedy at different levels of depth and abstraction. A spectacular yet fateful collage that mixes dance art, movement, projected images and filmed sequences, silent sounds, drone and deafening lamentations in a cinematic way. It should hurt in the same way as when massaging a bruise.
Intonal Residency
Sebastian Mullaert, Nathan Larson, Subchamber Ensemble
20 January 2020 - 15 March 2020
The project is primarily a collaboration between the electronic musician Sebastian Mullaert, Inkonst and Malmö Live concert hall.

Blackout
Tim Bishop
28 January 2020 - 28 January 2020
Blackout is a unique, immersive, new performance work for one person at a time by artist Tim Bishop. The work takes place in complete darkness and uses spatial audio and haptic feedback to create a multi-sensory and evocative environment for a powerfully self-reflective experience. A voice and physical guide encourage participants on an introspective journey without visual stimuli. The work uses sound, touch and interaction to engage with perceptions of physical and virtual contexts, and to reflect on each participant's own unique presence in the universe.

Breathtaking
Tian Rotteveel
7 January 2020 - 21 January 2020
‘Breathtaking’ explores an erratic wondering music-making body. Following a performer's private relation to all that makes sound. Finding specific sounding materiality along the way and organizing its frequencies and distribute it into a room, creating a listening effect. Whether breath, gesture, voice, or any sound-making resources, everything what feels useful to the performer to create sonic happenings in the room, but as well to understand what the next thing is to do.
trapped in bio
Signe Boe
7 January 2020 - 26 January 2020
The project ‘trapped in bio’ is an interdisciplinary project including film, literature, forensic linguistics, image scan technologies and sculpture. With the starting point in a redacted detective file, Signe Boe is questioning how to write about someone without enclosing them in a description. During the residency, Signe Boe will be conducting video- and sound recordings that will become part of an interactive publication, where new digital technologies connect printed matter with film.
Con/current
Julie Østengaard
7 January 2020 - 26 January 2020
In the current sound-based work, a kinetic sound sculpture is creating acoustic sound through movement of its own material derived from motorized and disorganized movements originated in the acoustic material itself. It interacts with electronic sound in a live performance. 'Con/current' is an interchanging sound piece that blends virtual and physical sound in a virtual and physical space. The work is part of the Make Sound Residency, which will end with a public presentation.
