HILDELUND KONSTFESTIVAL, VÄSTRA ÂRMTVIK, SWEDEN
Hildelund Art festival is a meeting place in the Värmländska countryside with contemporary art practices at its core. The aim is to encourage and create conversations where different expressions within art, music and theory act as an entrance to dialogue. The event lasts for three days and is free of charge.
The theme for 2018 was «where all things begin», after a conversation with Mikael Ingemyr, one of last years visitors. He studies astronomy and revealed with plenty of enthusiasm how he sees the Big Bang. Mikael held a lecture during the festival. There were also lectures on the earths impending ending and activities ranging from theatre, dance and performance to sound art, installations, paintings, drawings and sculptures.
«Grenseløse vibrasjoner» is a sound work consisting of a series of field recordings from the period 2015 - 2018. The recordings were made in Vannøya, Århus, Oslo and Ålesund. Some of the sounds are processed, others are unaltered and arranged in their original state. The aim of the work is to test our relationship to sounds and create fictional spaces and expressions by exploring new connections between entities and individuals who are unlikely to feature in a shared environment.
