Sequences VII

Concept

An offspring of the dynamic art scene that thrives in Reykjavik, Sequences real-time art festival is an independent biennial that aims to produce and present progressive visual art with special focus on time-based mediums, such as performance, sonic works, video and public interventions.

“Plumbing”
Sequences VII presents a spectrum of video installations, exhibitions, screenings, performances and discussions centred on the theme of “Plumbing,” highlighting the often-unseen infrastructure that underlies digital communication and its complex network of pipes and wires and its metaphorical correspondence with the physical structure of the body as well as of the earth.

The seventh edition looks at the developments in the areas of DIY culture, body visualization and the dynamic possibilities offered by installation, sound and time-based media with an unbiased approach which embraces, rather than avoids, notions of amateurism, improvisation, “glitch” aesthetics and bottom-up creative initiative.

Drawing on influences from the local environment as well as the global phenomenon of data space, Sequences VII includes a selection of 26 artists, performers and manipulators of images, data and bodies who were keen to exchange, mix and reconfigure thoughts, doubts, works, time and space. Sequences VII will take place in publicly-funded and commercial galleries, artist-run spaces, project spaces and informal locations in Reykjavík.

Alfredo Cramerotti, director of MOSTYN, is the artistic director of Sequences VII.

Honorary artist

It is with great honour and pride that we present Carolee Schneemann as honorary artist of Sequences VII.

Carolee Schneemann (1939) is a multidisciplinary artist. She transformed the definition of art, especially discourse on the body, sexuality, and gender. The history of her work is characterized by research into archaic visual traditions, pleasure wrested from suppressive taboos, the body of the artist in dynamic relationship with the social body.
