Allora & Calzadilla “Clamor” | Live performance17 Sep, 13:00 — 16:00
The installation Clamor is being presented here for the first time since 2009
Allora & Calzadilla’s installation Clamor (2006), part of the Astrup Fearnley Collection, will be activated by six live musicians. Through a research-based approach, Allora & Calzadilla’s work traces the intersections of history, material culture and politics. Their installation Clamor explores the relationship between sound, music, and war. The artists assembled an extensive archive of war songs from a wide variety of contexts. These songs are played by dueling musicians hidden inside the work, creating a cacophonous sound montage.
With Johanna Scheie Orellana, Torstein Lavik Larsen, Sigurd Skogdal, Danielle Price, Martin Lee Thomson, and Frank Hannasvik.
Jennifer Allora (born 1974 in Philadelphia, USA) and Guillermo Calzadilla (born 1971 in La Havana, Cuba) are an artist duo living and working in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Allora & Calzadilla have collaborated on an extensive body of work since 1995. Through a research-based approach, their work traces the intersections of history, material culture and politics through a wide range of mediums, including sculpture, performance, sound, video, and photography.
This event is part of Before Tomorrow Live – a program of performance, talks, sound, and screenings as an extension of the anniversary exhibition Before Tomorrow – Astrup Fearnley Museet 30 Years.
The performance lasts from 13:00 to 16:00 with some short breaks. Feel free to come and go as you please – it’s included in the admission ticket!
