Experimental Notations
Join Kosmologym and Martha Skou for an evening of performances based on experimental musical notation systems. Kosmologym will present Tasty Score from 18:30-19:20. Tasty Score is a human driven drum machine that turns recipes into songs and was originally created for the Art Prospect festival in Saint Petersburg, RF. The game translates recipes from “The Book for Tasty and Healthy Food”.

Martha Skou will perform Core-Core #03 at 19:30. She will be accompanied by two Danish musicians Jonas Stampe (sitar) and Marius Paschke (percussion). Core-Core #03 encourages risk-taking, spontaneity and playfulness and centers around Skou’s exploration of creating image and sound simultaneously, while examining intuitive methods for improvised collaborations across genres. Beyond vocal technique, Skou often uses effects to build up layers of sound. Shaping the voice while drawing and moving intuitively in space.

Kosmologym is an art and game design collective. Our games challenge players to encounter others (human/animal, plant, mineral, institution) and place human bodies in physical relationships to global systems.

Martha Skou is a Danish-born artist based in New York City. Martha moves freely between audible and visual worlds through abstract and atmospheric languages that manifest in both spatial and two-dimensional forms. Her collaborative and solo projects take place in intimate universes. Skou earned her master’s degree from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design while at the same time playing with her former band Betting On The Mouse. She has exhibited her work at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York; Telfair Museums, Savannah; and Pioneer Works, New York, among others.

August 14th

ARoS Museum, Atelier & Salon (3rd Floor)

“Aleax’s Runn Off” by Lee Tusman and “PowerSuit Fashion Show” by Aliya Bonar
August 14th Lee Tusman presented “Alexa’s Run Off”. Tusman showed new works and a talk on embodied virtual poesis assistants. Tusman points out that: In the near future an alternative to the convenience and utility promised by corporate digital assistants Alexa, Cortana, Google Assistant emerges. New corporate teams bottle generative art systems within the black box of deep learning algorithms. AI has freed artists and their dealers from the need to exhaustively imagine and test novel, costly art installations. Instead powerful machines run millions of calculations to spawn new works for subscribers. Rival brands generate entirely virtual artists, negating the need to pay humans. Against this scene a hacker-art-collective infects the algorithms, attempting to establish….what?

Aliya Bonar’s presented her new line of PowerSuits made while in residence at ARoS. These garments are both ActionSuits — garments worn for taking bold new, impactful actions in your life and community — and also InActionSuits — garments worn while being indecisive and anxious about your life’s direction. The fashion show took place at the Atelier and traveled through the museum.

See photos from Tusman’s talk and Bonar’s fashion show below.

Independent curator Georgia Muenster organized a new iteration of her Going Places (Doing Stuff) tours — Aarhus Bike Edition!

The concept Going Places (Doing Stuff) was originally a part of Flux Factory’s three-year series of artist-led tours on buses – in which participants had no idea where the ride would lead. Georgia Muenster webpages described the concept as “an adventure as performance art…” furthermore that “the content of the tours is entirely up to the artist, and destinations are kept secret.”

While at ARoS Public in 2019, Georgia Muenster invited all the Fluxers on an Aarhus Edition of Going Places (Doing Stuff) via bike, with only Georgia knowing the destinations. The tour turned out to be amazing (as you can see in the pictures!). Biking around the City of Aarhus the tour took the Fluxers to the Botanic Garden, Museums Ovartaci, seeing a dinosaur footprint and at the ending a picnic in Trøjborg.

 

Skin Flora: Skin Painting
A project by Caitlin & Misha, Flux Factory ARoS Public
Saturday August 10

Our skin alone hosts a thousand species. Caitlin & Misha invited people to celebrate their bacterial symbiosis by getting characters inspired by common skin bacteria painted onto their hands or faces. The need for a diverse microbiome is for them a potent analogy for the need for cultural diversity among people. Sharing is caring!
