KVELDENS KUNSTNERE:

SANDRA MUJINGA

Sandra Mujinga, based in Malmö, uses online distribution platforms for music as source material for her works, pulling from the overflow of sharing and access to both media and means of media production. For the duration of the exhibition, Mujinga will sing for you, the only condition being that you will engage with her through Skype.

G. DOUGLAS BARRETT

G. Douglas Barrett’s work considers music as part of a critical arts practice in which performance and conceptuality figure as integral components. Drawing equally from the contemporary gallery arts and the performing arts traditions, Barrett has exhibited, performed, and published throughout North America and Europe. In 2009 Barrett received a DAAD research grant to Berlin; he is also the recipient of a 2012-13 Franklin Furnace Fund grant. Barrett has obtained advanced degrees from California Institute of the Arts (MFA) and the State University of New York at Buffalo (Ph.D.).

CECILIA JONSSON

Cecilia Jonsson’s research resides in the tension between the living and the inanimate. Two binary oppositions, in which she searches for related or interconnected techniques, base materials and behavioural differences. Her intention is to signify how they can intersect and collaborate into audio-visual and spatial examinations. The results are often intricate constructions that negotiate the fertile ground between empirical research and artistic practice where art and technology meet environmental concerns. Cecilia Jonsson has an MA from Bergen Academy of Art and Design and as participant in the Nordic Sound Art MFA program.

He is also a music critic and curator for new and experimental music.
