‘I Design’

Kimmo Modig @ Kattilahalli, Oct 28

28 October 2016

Kimmo Modig is presenting I, Design at Helsinki’s Kattilahalli on October 28.

An ongoing project between the Helsinki-based artist and Video in Common (ViC), the event is a continuation of its first iteration, called Listen to Yourself: Sound Design Tutorial with Pappa Modig, during a residency at London’s Space in August. The performance presentation is an interactive sound design workshop, produced by both audience and artist, while running through the clich├ęs, ideologies and political meanings of certain sonic elements.

Questioning the role of a designer in ascribing value, power and status to cultural production, the video material (produced with ViC in London) stems from a filming session around Hackney Wick, with Modig performing empty gestures in front of cameras, destined to be given meaning only at the edit.

See the FB event page for details.**
