DRINKING SWEDISH WATER IN ALBANIA, sound performance
SOUNDCHECK, sound installation
THURSDAY 19TH OF MAY AT 8 PM: LECTURE HALL OF THE TIRANA ART ACADEMY
Henrik Anderssonâ€™s sound art has raised an increased interest both in Sweden and abroad. The artist was recently offered a production in residency at The Baltic Art Center (Sweden), where he made a sound installation by resetting the church bells of a local Cathedral. He is currently exhibiting â€œif it isnâ€™t love then it is the bomb that will bring us togetherâ€ in Pristina, a work in which vibrations registered in Canada and caused by a nuclear explosion in Pakistan, have been transformed into audible sound. Within the framework of â€œ1/60 Insurgent spacesâ€ Andersson would like to invite you to the lecture hall of the Tirana Art Academy. Here he intends to make a â€œmeeting with the otherâ€ audible, by drinking Swedish water brought to Albania. In the same space, Andersson will present a sound installation inspired by - and referring to â€“ the simple techniques of a sound check (such as blowing in the microphone), believing that such acts cannot merely be viewed as technical necessities but are also moments of accentuated power.
Henrik Andersson, born 1973 in Gothenburg, is currently living and working in Stockholm, Sweden.
Also in the May edition of â€œ1/60 insurgent spaceâ€: Henrik Eriksson, also living and working in Sweden, is currently working on a new and site specific work concerning architecture and city planning in Tirana.
