Alexis O’Hara: SQUEEEEQUE! The Improbable Igloo

Performative Installation

May 5- May 9, 2009

Project Description

Centre des arts actuels Skol presents Alexis O’Hara’s first performative installation. Her project straddles the divide between the worlds of experimental electronic music, gallery installation, and the blackest comedy. O’Hara will be sampling and transforming her voice in real-time, within an igloo made of speakers and amplifiers acting as a resonance chamber through the chimerical qualities of electricity. For SQUEEEEQUE! a.k.a. The Improbable Igloo, the artist is inviting the public between Tuesday and Thursday to witness the construction of the igloo, which will then be activated with performances presented on Friday May 8, from 5pm to 8pm, and Saturday May 9, from 1pm to 3pm.

Presented in the context of Elektra festival.
