This Saturday evening, join Kunsthall Stavanger for a special performance with artists Hanne Lippard and Bendik Giske. In conjunction with Hanne Lippard's current exhibition at the Kunsthall titled, Ulyd, the artist will collaborate with musician Bendik Giske to create a performative dialogue that lingers between the lines of linguistic content and abstract melody.
Hanne Lippard’s practice explores the voice as a medium. Her education in graphic design informs how language can be visually powerful; her texts are visual, rhythmic, and performative rather than purely informative, and her work is conveyed through a variety of disciplines, which include short films, sound pieces, installations and performance.
Bendik Giske (Smalltown Supersound) is a saxophonist and composer whose work explores the tension between the performative and corporeal boundaries of the instrument and his body. Fusing extended techniques with elements that draw from electronic music, his work traverses genre. His collaborations include music for dance, performance - and visual art as well as installations. His work has recently been commissioned by Lafayette Anticipations and he has performed at clubs, festivals and art institutions including Berghain, Art Basel, MoMA PS1, New Museum in New York, ICA and Frieze in London, Berlin Biennale, Øya Festivalen and the Oslo Opera.Read More
