'It's Never Windy In Paradise' uses Aarhus' iconic building 'Isbjerget' as a stage for a performance and exhibition space. The work intends to consider and reflect on ways of living and takes place from 12.30 - 17.30. Screenings of three films will continously run in the carpark basement.
The Isbjerget's sterile perfected setting provides an eerie stock image reality where ways of living and human behaviour slip into the constructed simulation of the render or stock image. The work intends to slip into these constructed simulations and glitch into reality, where the viewer is unable to distinguish the difference between the performance and non performance, performers and non performers.
'It's Never Windy In Paradise' is a new collaborative work by Icelandic artists Arnar Ómarsson, Brák Jónsdóttir and British artist Sean Millington and hosted by Non—space, Aarhus. The work consists of a live choreographed performance, a prerecorded film of the performance, and a computer generated simulation of the performance. The three forms interweave with each other, where the performers on occasions cross paths simultaneously with the pre recorded self or computer generated self, projected onto a screen. The trio have built a language of stock images, rendered files and found motion capture simulations that inform the actions, the movements, the behaviour for each character identity and have set them to repeat.
NB! Not at Non-space, but in Aarhus Ø.
