An illustrated talk, screening and concert at Trondheim Cinematek to celebrate the 25th anniversary of electronic arts festival Screens, the forerunner of Meta.Morf.
The screening programme will feature old and new film/video works, including Ivar Smedstad’s work Centuryfuge 255, one of the video works featured in the Screens exhibition, 1997. From the same exhibition, artist/architect Vibeke Jensen will be represented in a video interview recorded in the early 2000’s. There will be a film by Inger Lise Hansen, a Trondheim native, and an internationally renowned experimental film maker. Documentation of the ’97 Screens exhibition will also be presented.
Of more recent works, the programme will include Flyttestein by film/video artist Kaia Hugin, a work originally commissioned for a show at Rake Visningsrom, Trondheim, in 2016. Also shown will be Uns-table, a short sound-image work made by composer Øyvind Brandtsegg together with electronic musician Tijs Ham, visual artist Piya Wanthiang and videomaker Jeremy Welsh.
The programme includes a live concert, Reconstruction V, a work for recorded sound, digital film and live contrabass, composed by Lene Grenager and performed by Michael Francis Duch with projections by Jeremy Welsh. The work was premiered in January 2022 at Inderøy Kulturhus and Dokkhuset, Trondheim, later performed at Café Hærverk in Oslo. Grenager and Duch are both members of leading contemporary music ensemble Lemur and have often collaborated with visual artists and film makers.
The duration of the programme will be approximately 90 minutes.
