Live Stage: Collision Zone Live [it Venice]

unknown.jpegCollision Zone Live by Gast Bouschet and Nadine Hilbert w/Otobong Nkanga and Y.E.R.M.O. — Premiere at Philharmonie Luxembourg :: November 29, 2009; 8:00 pm :: Installation at Luxembourg Pavilion Ca’ del Duca, 3052 Corte del Duca Sforza, 30124 San Marco Venice, until November 22, 2009.

Every thing must have a beginning, and that beginning must be linked to something that went before…

Collision Zone Live will mix field recordings of natural and urban sounds with improvised music by Y.E.R.M.O. and intuitive vocals by Otobong Nkanga. The show will include large screen projections of videos recorded at the edge of Europe: satellites, radars and surveillance patrols, brutalist architecture, informal human settlements, geological imagery of mountains and caves, steaming volcanic craters, insect hunters and their prey…

Sound and vision will interact in order to activate a transgressive experience which will challenge existing relations between seeing and hearing. The live performance is striving for a disruption of the senses and an altered perception of the Self. The transmutation of fear into ecstasy is our ultimate goal. Grounded in experimental procedures, Collision Zone Live will be a journey with an uncertain outcome. Come what may!

unknown-2.jpegOtobong Nkanga (°1974) works in a broad spectrum of media. The various media she employs interrogate our mental and physical identities in varied environments and contexts. Nkanga began her art studies at the Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, Nigeria, and later continued in Paris at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts. She has been an artist-in-residence at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam and has finished her Masters Program at Dasarts, Amsterdam. Her works have been performed and exhibited in the 8th Havana Biennale – the Studio Museum in Harlem (NY) – Sharjah Biennale 7 – Trienal de Luanda, Angola – Museo Tamayo, Mexico City – 26th Bienal de Sao Paulo – Taipei Biennial – Africa Remix and many other shows.

Y.E.R.M.O. provides powerful noise and psychoactive moods since 2004. The band is formed by Yannick Franck (°1981), sound artist and performer, co-founder of Idiosyncratics Records and Xavier Dubois (°1981), fierce guitarist and electro-acoustic experimentalist, member of Ultraphallus. Y.E.R.M.O. works in close collaboration with Gast Bouschet and Nadine Hilbert since early 2007 and performed live for the screening of Things to Come, at Sonic Visions Festival at KUFA, Esch. They also created the soundtrack for The Crossing for the exhibition ELO – Inner Exile, Outer Limits at MUDAM Luxembourg and the multifaceted installation Collision Zone for the Luxembourg Pavilion on the occasion of the 53rd Venice Biennale.
