RUM 7
I am ALVA
(Sophia Ioannou Gjerding & Xenia Xamanek Lopez)


“I have been thinking about it for some time. I would to call myself by the name ALVA. ALVA, because I am the inventer of the ghost box, the conch shell, the house of unattached voices.”

(English below)

Som en del af ORAUMs fortsatte viruskataklysme blev ‘I am ALVA’ præsenteret som det syvende rum. ‘I am ALVA’ er et videoværk udarbejdet af billedkunstner Sophia Ioannou Gjerding og komponist Xenia Xamanek Lopez, som beskæftiger sig med stemmen som et prostetisk adskilt element fra kroppen, samt landskabet som simulering i relation til naturens ide.

Begivenheden blev præsenteret i anledning af DIAS Kunsthals nyåbnede pop-up udstilling ‘MyMusic’, der er en del af samarbejdet med ARKEN Museum for Moderne Kunst. Projektet blev støttet af Statens Kunstfond.

Rummet er en flade. Stemmer flyver afsted.
Ude i landskabet ligger en konkylie.

Koncept og manuskript: Sophia Ioannou Gjerding og Xenia Xamanek Lopez.
3D-animation: Sophia Ioannou Gjerding og Lars Hemmingsen Nørgaard.
Lyd: Sophia Ioannou Gjerding og Xenia Xamanek Lopez.
