The Series: After touring since 2007 with a performance & installation for which they developed the illusion- machine “Viewmaster”, Heike Langsdorf, Laurent Liefooghe and Ula Sickle now offer a chance for other artists to explore the possibilities of this ‘magic‘ tool. “The Series” invites artists from different disciplines to use the Viewmaster to produce a new work. Works emerging can range from cinematic, performative, visual and even auditive attempts to make use of the tool. Each time the Viewmaster moves to another residency location, a new work is added to the series by a guest artist.
The first installment will be co-produced by Huis a/d Werf in Utrecht, where Finnish choreographer Inari Salmivaara will explore the box during a two-week residency in February 2010. The workshop and residency will be accompanied by a seminar for the PHD students of the Media and Performance department of the University of Utrecht on the topic of ‘Liveness’.
