Madeleine Andersson: Dirty Coal
Madeleine Andersson (b.1993 in Jönköping, Sweden) is currently taking her master at the Royal Danish Art Academy. Through humorous, often self-deprecating video installations she seeks to highlight the emotions and relationsbetweenawestEuropeanlifestyleandclimate change. It is foremost in language and performance that this investigation takes form, where she aims to twist and contort the language and rhetoric of climate discourse to find its limitations and possibilities. The video Dirty Coal is a proposition of possible connections between fossil fuel extraction, sexuality and masculinity. It plays with concepts of lust and urges in an attempt to mock our current system. The film will be accompanied with an artist interview available on Facebook and on the website of CBS Digital Art Space.
Maria Kapajeva: The Bright Way
(Split screen or two screens, 16:9, 4K, stereo, subtitled, 9 min, 2017)
Maria Kapajeva on the video: "The video is my attempt to deconstruct a myth, a dream projected with a Soviet film The Bright Way (1940). Lyubov Orlova starred in it as a weaver, who made her successful journey from a peasant to a stakhanovite. The protagonist inspired one of the weavers of the closed textile mill in Estonia, who I interviewed, which in her turn inspired me on this video work. It is done in collaboration with Estonian dancer Maarja Tõnisson in the spaces of the mill, which closed down in 2009 after 150 years of its existence. Leaving audible my instructions from behind the camera, I strengthen viewer’s attention on the manipulative mechanisms behind propaganda films and possibly every other artwork."
Christoffer Birkkjær: Add the mirror (2019)
In an art institution, visitors observe and address art. However, with Add the Mirror, the artwork observes and address the visitors and the room in which it is exhibited.
The artwork records data from depth, color, and sound in the room in which it exists. At night, when the artwork goes to sleep, its algorithm processes all the impressions, which it has been fed during the day.
It calculates flow, interactions, and reactions, and tries to understand and portray the room in an abstract three-dimensional digital sculpture.
During the exhibition period, the room’s dynamics change with exams, holidays, and the start of a new semester. And as an individual, the artwork develops autonomously and continuously depending on the room’s activity.
As the work becomes wiser, it also becomes more difficult to influence. But in periods of low activity, the complexity will fall, and it will become more sensitive to new impressions.
The more you stay in the room, the more you become a part of the work. Over time, we will all get to know the work better and be able to see ourself in it.
The work was exclusively made for CBS' Digital Art Space.
