Body Navigation Festival

Audiovisual Performance Installation

A mul­ti-hour audio­vi­su­al per­for­mance instal­la­tion in the inti­mate set­ting of an apartment/gallery dur­ing the Body Nav­i­ga­tion Fes­ti­val 2008 in the cen­tre of St. Peters­burg (RUS).

 

Made by Flat Cor­ner & MOVE Project: 7 artists from 6 dif­fer­ent coun­tries who found each oth­er dur­ing the Cimat­ics Mas­ter­class Live A/V 2007/2008 in Brus­sels (BE). We formed a group of artists col­lab­o­rat­ing on a com­mon inter­est in explor­ing inter­ac­tion of the body with live video-pro­jec­tion and live (gen­er­at­ed) sound. The results of our research were pre­sent­ed dur­ing this audio­vi­su­al per­for­mance instal­la­tion in St. Petersburg.

 

Cimat­ics is a Brus­sels based inter­na­tion­al plat­form for Live A/V. This Mas­ter­class con­sist­ed of a series of 4 month­ly work­shops with lec­tures from dif­fer­ent inter­na­tion­al­ly renowned media artists / the­o­rists (amongst oth­ers Marc Ameri­ka, Lab[au], Yves de Mey, Jer­ry  Galle, Bren­dan Byrne & Ana Car­val­ho, Boris Debackere). Dur­ing the mas­ter­class the select­ed artists, work­ing in dif­fer­ent fields of media-art (and with back­grounds rang­ing from chore­og­ra­phy to archi­tec­ture) formed groups and col­lab­o­rat­ed with each oth­er, with the aim of cre­at­ing an audio­vi­su­al per­for­mance project.
