This spring the Berwald Hall will explore the connections between music, technology and movement – together with the audience! From February to May a border-crossing exhibition will be on show in the foyers of the Berwald Hall with interactive musical installations created by Carl and Åsa Unander-Scharin and Ludvig Elblaus.
Over the years that they have collaborated on projects, Carl Unander-Scharin, Åsa Unander-Scharin and Ludvig Elblaus have often explored how movements and gestures are transformed into music/voice/sound which in turn transforms the movements of the person who hears and interacts with the installations and “instruments”, respectively.
Guillaume Apollinaire was one of the leading figures of 20th century French modernism; he coined the term Surrealism but is mainly remembered for his poems. In his concrete poetry (where the typography and layout clarify and illustrate a theme or subject of the poem) he presented some of the keynotes that were typical of modernism at that time: memories of the First World War, of peace, love and new technology. He called this form of poetry Calligrammes, which is also the name of a collection of poems from 1918.
