Curare Art Movement participates at the Athens Video Art Festival at the old gas factory Technopolis in the center of Athens with a video screening programme including some of the most interesting contemporary Swedish video artists. Represented in the screening programme:
Magdalena Dzurlikowska and Richard Dinter, Maria Friberg, Oscar Furbacken, Sonia Hedstrand, Mathias Kristersson, Petra Lindholm, Johannes Stjärne Nilsson & Ola Simonsson, Kristofer Ström and Stina Wirfedt.
With us in Athens are also the artist duo å+k (Åsa Ståhl and Kristina Lindström), with the sound installation Play in Reverse, made specificly for Curare Art Movement in Athens. The interactive sound installation Play in Reverse is a swing where the one who is swinging controls a sound file through his/her movements, at the same time as this person is controlled by the limitations of the swing and is moved back and forward in a narrative. The site-specific sounds are recorded in the street of Athens.
Realized with support from the Swedish Embassy in Athens and the Swedish Institute in Athens.
