hc gilje :: snitt




‘Snitt’ is H.C. Gilje’s installation made for Galleri 21 in Malmö. A straight light line moves slowly through the three rooms of the gallery space, cutting it into different sections (snitt). The movement of the line is “attacking” the room from different angles and it focuses the attention of the viewer on the physical qualities of the space. The physical properties of the gallery’s space (walls, ceiling, floor, door openings, light fixtures etc.) modulate/break up the straight line into a continuously evolving pattern of line fragments, depending on the position of the viewer and the angle of the line in relation to the architecture.


H.C. Gilje works with realtime environments, installations, live performance, set design and single channel video. He has presented his works in concert halls, theatre and cinema venues, galleries, festivals and on several DVD releases, including ‘242.pilots live in Bruxelles’ on the label Carpark and ‘Cityscapes’ on the French label Lowave. He was a member of the video-impro trio 242.pilots and the visual motor of the Norwegian dance company Kreutzerkompani. In October 2006 Gilje started a 3 year position as a research fellow at Bergen National Academy of the Arts in Norway, exploring how audiovisual technology can be used to transform, create, expand, amplify and interpret physical spaces.

H.C. Gilje’s current exhibition Light space modulators is open until 22 May in iMAL center for digital cultures and technology in Brussels.

azurebumble :: fragmental : book


Fragmental is a new book from Azurebumble (Alan Wilson), it consists of six series of digital artworks, each having evolved from small sections ‘sampled’ (cut) from photographs.


“A process where these basic elements have been combined and recombined numerous times to produce an extensive vocabulary of shapes and forms. With no preconceived ideas, I begin to play and improvise with these pieces allowing my imagination to create compositions, perhaps based on a simple pattern, an interesting association or architectural element, or maybe they’ll suggest some surreal narrative. These constructions can then form the basis for a continuation of this process, whereby selecting the most interesting aspects of these new images and placing them into the original pool, can create possibilities for fresh combinations and different ideas. This continual process of deconstruction and reconstruction also makes it possible to trace the evolution of specific elements throughout a number of incarnations and series. Despite the multiple choices this technique allows, I think it’s also important to introduce source material from outside the pool. Lately, using a similar process, I have been ‘remixing’ works by another photographer (Fernando Prats) and ‘refurbishing’ and ‘reimagining’ an old photograph by Andreas Feininger. In time, certain aspects of these series could possibly be integrated with earlier works to produce new and interesting hybrids.” Azurebumble

Mike Tonkin and Anna Liu :: The Singing Ringing Tree




Click on image to watch the video


The Singing Ringing Tree is a wind powered sound sculpture resembling a tree set in the landscape of the Pennine mountain range overlooking Burnley, in Lancashire. Completed in 2006, it is part of the series of four sculptures within the Panopticons arts and regeneration project created by the East Lancashire Environmental Arts Network (ELEAN). The project was set up to erect a series of 21st-century landmarks, or Panopticons (structures providing a comprehensive view), across East Lancashire as symbols of the renaissance of the area.

Designed by architects Mike Tonkin and Anna Liu of Tonkin Liu, the Singing Ringing Tree is a 3 metre tall construction comprising pipes of galvanised steel which harness the energy of the wind to produce a slightly discordant and penetrating choral sound covering a range of several octaves. Some of the pipes are primarily structural and aesthetic elements, while others have been cut across their width enabling the sound. The harmonic and singing qualities of the tree were produced by tuning the pipes according to their length by adding holes to the underside of each.

In 2007, the sculpture won (along with 13 other candidates) the National Award of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for architectural excellence. (edit from Wikipedia)

waxy pith :: new platform for the contemporary arts

WAXY PITH is a seriously new platform for the contemporary arts, functioning in Brussels, Oslo, and further afield. WAXY PITH nurtures genuine artistic practice in which the essence of the work is palpable. Possessing a decidedly itinerant format within a dynamic organic structure, WAXY PITH presents striking works in varying contexts.

Works presented by WAXY PITH are imbued with extraordinary depth, created by artists possessing a rigorous sense of individuality and integrity; the works are expansive, innately poetic, resonant. All creative genres are embraced; presented are important, unfamiliar or undiscovered works of an exceptional standard, their inherent meaningfulness is derived from the nature and quality of the work itself. WAXY PITH deems that the intrinsic content of a work of art defines its true value.

The presenting and selective interweaving of visual art, performance, spoken word, music, dance, film, literature, and other forms of merited creative expression, introduce into the programme a rich repertoire of material, while the formation of selective collaborations brings further dimensionality. By way of a finely tuned curatorial process, cross-links are continually forged, ever widening the range of artists, galleries, and private individuals with whom WAXY PITH works.

Who it is

Jodie Hruby is the creative force at WAXY PITH. As an architect, artist, curator, writer, critic, poet, and catalyst, Jodie treats the WAXY PITH platform as an extension of her own artistic practice, curating a complex programme of activity, selecting and working closely with the artists. Prior to founding WAXY PITH, Jodie created and developed Naked State, a platform housed in a downtown Brussels gallery space. There she directed and curated a varied programme that included exhibitions, collaborations, performances, dance, music and film.

Olve Sande is a collaborative partner at WAXY PITH. A visual artist based in Oslo, he is also the facilitator for WAXY PITH presentations in Norway.

Deborah Coûteaux is the top assistant at WAXY PITH. She performs a plethora of functions essential to the successful operation of the platform.

Members are our precious loves, sincerely and enthusiastically supporting and contributing to the programme in multifarious ways.
