In addition to our musical acts, we also employ a talented mix of Visual Artists, VJs and a Decorations team who will be creating works throughout our main concert venue Driv.
The following artists are VJ’s and Lighting Technicians, and will be controlling lights and visuals during the concerts:
Curatorial Note from the Decorations Qeen, Andrea Conradsen:
“Somehow we all ended up here in the north. Exactly at the same time. It has to mean something!”
How will electronic sounds organized in a limited public space transform our bodies, our minds – the way we perceive art? Experience a selection of soundless videos and site-specific installations made as a response to the space itself.
So i am doing the “decorations” at Insomnia this year.
There should be some local artists involved, i thought.
So i asked a few – whose work i like :-)
My first thought was that I only wanted video works.
But some of the artists wanted to make installations and paintings instead.
And that’s how the collaboration started. All the artists presenting art works at insomnia this year are currently studying art – in a process to become better at navigating in the art world – because an art education doesn’t automatically make you a best selling IT-person. It’s a weird and i’d say tough place to navigate through. My experience is that you get as much fun as you make yourself. Because (most likely) nobody else will do it for us.
I hope you – as a visitor of the festival – will spend some time searching for the artworks, discussing them with your friends, because the art needs to be talked about. And not just by “a privileged” few, but by everyone who is seeing it. When it comes to art, nothing can be right or wrong.
ENJOY THE ART AND HAVE A GREAT FESTIVAL :_D – Andrea Conradsen.
The following are Visual Artists, and will be creating works that you will find in the spaces between the stages at Driv:
