Taiwanese artist Lin Chi-Wei presents the commission Sound Intestines For Stockholm: Analogical/Digital Body Music performance in Konsthall C.
Sound Intestines For Stockholm: Analogical/Digital Body Music is a series of work composed of text, performance and image. Inspired by the linguistic production process of “Poesie Sonore” from Dadaism and Futurism as well as the live performance of “Concrete Poem” movement, the work is Lin’s recent sound/language experiment to employ all sorts of non-electronic sounds and materials in producing quasi-electronic sound effects while returning his practice to its original body politics.
By instigating and gathering the collective sound and force of the local participants to formulate the Sound Intestines For Stockholm: Analogical/Digital Body Music into an interactive instrument vibrated within the space, the performance that takes the concept of Möbius strip will also complete a duo reversion to transform the meaning of the artwork itself in the Swedish social/cultural context—the interaction and exchange between the artist and the audience become the turning neck of this metaphor, and the de-construction of “Zhong Yong” (Confucian virtue, meaning “amidst the common”) and “Lagom” (Swedish, meaning “the best agreed”) may introspect the energy of inversion to be reborn within each individual and society.
