[su_vimeo url=”https://vimeo.com/204093900″]

Atelier Nord ANX, Olaf Ryes plass 2 (entrance Sofienberggt.)
27.01. – 26.02.17
Thursday and Friday 15-18, Saturday and Sunday 13-18.

Join us for the exhibition opening including live performance, food and DJ-set on Thursday 26th of January 7PM.

Loud Matter is a series of interactive instruments by Marieke Verbiesen. The various installations are heavily influenced by science fiction and Auto-Destructive Art and aim to imagine the instruments of a far away future, where destructive tools and forces are considered integral to creative processes. Each installation contains a number of custom-made interfaces including touchpads, joysticks and gesture controlled devices that allow visitors to manipulate several audiovisual compositions.

The visuals generated in Loud Matter are characteristic of Verbiesen’s pixel-animated, retro aesthetic. Reminiscent of the graphics of video games on 80s systems such as the Atari ST and Commodore Amiga.

Marieke Verbiesen is a Dutch artist based in Bergen. Her practice is centered on interactive installations and animations, often based on b-movies, computer games and science fiction phenomena. Verbiesen blends the re-use of outmoded technology such as old computer hardware and Super 8 film with new technology such as interactive interfaces and motion tracking.

The opening of Loud Matter on Thursday 26th of January features an extensive collaborative program. We hope you can join us for a great evening of events!
