Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen: Body Interfaces: A Processual Scripting

TMS member Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen going to show a week of a durational performative installation with guests, in Berlin at Galerie Grüntaler 9 (at Grüntaler Strasse 9 as the name suggests) from 15. - 22. April:

Body Interfaces: A Processual Scripting is a performative installation generated by Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen over the duration of one week. It wishes to raise questions regarding the role of documentation in artistic research, its status and how it can feed into other processes.
In the spatial frames of Grüntaler9 the artist will be intensively working with and redeveloping her own concept of an archive and resources based on the documents and remains from previous performances and interventions, which will additionally be resulting in other performance structures.
The installation is in an ongoing process that can be witnessed everyday from 2-8pm. On selected days there will be guests invited to discuss and perform with the artist in the space.
::::::::: Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen’s research works with the body and (as) materiality via combining understandings of it that are derived from site-specific performance art and from working with technology.
A crucial part of this research takes the form of interventions and performances, collectively titled Body Interfaces, first generated during a residency in Iceland (May, 2015) and since then developed and performed in various contexts, constantly challenging their own format and method. These practices deal with the body as interface for experience and communication in relation to other materialities as well as the environment that surrounds and interacts with these. The interface is here read as a transmitting entity and agency between the body and the surrounding surfaces. An important part of Body Interfaces is its own documentation, in various formats, shapes and scripted entities.
The processual installation is open daily from 14:00 until 20:00 and can be witnessed at all time. The processual scripting has a dynamic approach to the space and therefore the installation will arrive and evolve throughout the days, nothing has been in installed in advance – all is part of the process.
The research topic will be shared through performances and interventions as well as an ongoing reel of performance documentation.

full Embedded Artist concert online

The full concert of my project Embedded Artist which I run with Wolfgang Spahn, performed at Spektrum Berlin the 28. August 2015:

"Embedded Artist" is a media performance that combines four different layers merged into one visual entity. As a contemporary Gesamtkunstwerk, 3D models, video scratching, live camera, and mechanical effects are projected and combined within the space. The sound of the performance combines mechanical industrial noise with digital synthetic sound, which create structures and patterns connected to the visual output.
In this performance Spahn and Steiner have developed their own system to control multiple embedded systems using Pure Data, Raspberry Pi, Raspian, and Python, where as hardware components several Raspberry Pi's are combined with Paper-Duino-Pi's remote controlled via OSC from the performers laptops.
The 3D models are animated in OpenGL, where video and live cameras each run on a Raspberry Pi. Mechanical and optical effects such as fragmented projections are generated by servos and glass prisms, which are projected back onto the walls. "Embedded Artist" is filming the audience as well, which are additionally re-projected back into the space.

Witchfinder General

If you had ever faith in humanity, this film might help you. Witchfinder General from 1968 sports one of Vincent Price strongest and most serious performances in a dark and depressing movie. Absent is his typical overacting style which makes his evil characters kind of likeable or at least enjoyable, this is the real deal, playing the sadistic witch hunting general abusing his power. Prices not getting along with the director Michael Reeves might helped. Its amazing how a movie set in 1600s times during the witch hunt times can be still disturbing, after watching it I was terrified and depressed (well before watching it I was just depressed), its a good party stopping movie and belongs in the list we discussed here a while ago of the movies you should bring your first date, when you want to stay on your own. Very close to the Theatre Of Cruelty. Director Reeves died just some months after the release, some say it was suicide.
Its success created a short lived hype of witch hunt movies, also because they are good excuse to show scantily clad women and violence, most notorious the German coproduced Mark Of The Devil with Herbert Lom, Udo Kier and Herbert Fux!
