Warp and weft
The origin of this exploration of weaving came from an interest in the transition between technologies. How the weaving and textile industry has been a hotbed for the computer industry, and where many elements from the old technology cross over into the new. The performance with a loom is an attempt to discover, through art, what the terms duration and time can contain, how technology can be seen as a long woven thread through history with many tracks that it drags along. In term of form this becomes a motion on the scale between the condensed and the strung-out, between light and darkness, between man and machine. For the Borealis festival has Anne Marthe Dyvi invited the artist Idunn Aune Forland to weave and – together with Dyvi – be both instrument and performer.
The performance is produced in cooperation with BEK, Bergen Centre for electronic art for the Borealis festival.
