  • Marius Moldvær – Trace me where I’m not at home

    In Marius Moldvær’s project, the people of the Barents Region are the focus. Moldvær has placed woven, raw leather artworks in Kirkenes,
    Grense Jakobselv, Neiden, Nikel, Murmansk and Teriberka with each locations climate and environment affecting the artworks with constant change and development over time. The process creates a vivid recollection of the place – a reflection of how geography, climate, weather, settlement and industry shape the people who live there. Moldvær has also collected materials such as soil, roots and textiles that, together with the weaves, create a composite image of people of the north.

By letting the guitars pass over the amps back and forth in a pendulum motion, through feedback, you create a random composition of short tones in constant rhythmic displacement. As the pendulum motion becomes gradually smaller, the tones are getting longer and longer, until the point where the guitars come to a rest over the amplifiers and the tones are constant and form a cluster.

  • The Festival Exhibition
