March 25 m_division unveils a new project «Artification», aimed at supporting and presenting several facets of contemporary art, young talents and celebrated artists.
The opening night at the art-residence Quartariata, located in the park zone of Peterhof, will include live performances, audio-visual installations, screenings, and public talks with curators and artists.
One of the opening’s highlights will be the performance of Kurvenschreiber collective, which includes CYLAND MediaArtLab artists Sergei Komarov and Alexey Grachev.
Members of Kurvenschreiber collective are interested in transporting analog electronic music away from the rather sterile, academic environment to which it has become accustomed, and opened technology up to the possibility of spontaneous interaction with live performers. Kurvenschreiber sound is a link between anodyne analogue electronics and Tsiolkovskiy’s ideas of atomism.
The collective has radically reclaimed their synthesizers for spontaneity. Exploiting the tendency of analogue models of their instruments to betray reasonable expectations, they run tightropes between control and accident. Collaborators are liable to find themselves on untried ground, dependent upon sharp reflexes and tangential intuitions.
