Den gamle Barneavdelingen ved Haukeland universitetssykehus - 18/02 to 21/02

Ultimo Scenario

The exhibition “Ultimo Scenario” at the old Children’s Clinic at Haukeland University Hospital, exhibits works by 15 artists which in their practices are concerned with situations and site specificity. The artists engage with themes like the building’s architectural history, materials found on the premises, sounds and images that connect to the site, and personal experiences as next of kin at the clinic.

Atelier Nord ANX, Olaf Ryes plass 2 (inng Sofienberggt.) - 26/01 to 26/02

Marieke Verbiesen: Loud Matter

Loud Matter is a series of interactive instruments by Marieke Verbiesen. Each installation contains a number of custom-made interfaces including touchpads, joysticks and gesture controlled devices that allow visitors to manipulate several audiovisual compositions.

Visningsrommet USF - 03/02 to 19/02

Hauan and Urstad: SPRANG

ISPRANG is a composition of sound that transforms into light and activates a pattern of optical fibres. The installation uses the window towards the sea as a reverberating surface, so that parts of the sound can be heard from the square outside Visningsrommet.

SPRANG can be experienced February 3rd – 19th at Visningsrommet USF, in a version made especially for this room. BEK has been consultant for the sound work, and the installation has been set up with BEK’s equipment.

Kunsthuset Wrap - 28/01 to 29/01

Eide Bøen and Sletteland: The Table Turns

Did you miss The Table Turns during Oktoberdans 2016, or want to see the performance again? On January 28 og 19 you have the chance to see it at Wrap!

Karen Eide Bøen and Roar Sletteland have created a dance performance for four turntables and a dancer, where they examine the relationship between body, sound, turntables and room. The Table Turns is about freedom and power on the dance floor. It’s about LPs, stored movement, solidified vibrations and sound that revived matter.

Østre - 24/02 to 25/02

Gisle Martens Meyer: There is no Here, Here

Facing us on stage: a musician. He plays electronica. Works his machines like a hacker. But we can see him much better on screen. There, reality is different, and constantly changing.

The performance is co-produced by BEK, with BIT Teatergarasjen. A version was also shown at Oktoberdans 2016.

Marseilles - 29/01 to 30/01
