Diorama

In 2021 To be announced | To be announced

The word “diorama” often refers to a three-dimentional model of a landscape, such as displayed in museums of natural history. In the French diorama theatre, invented by Louis Daguerre in 1822, the audience were sat watching big landscape paintings transform through skillfully manipulated light, sound effects and live performers. In her performance series Diorama, contemporary Norwegian artist Ingri Fiksdal uses choreography as a special effect or lens to change the way we perceive the world. Her performances reflect on the passing of time, on the slow change in landscape, and scenography as an ecological practice of bodies both human and non-human. The music is composed by Norwegian musician Jenny Hval and noise artist Lasse Marhaug, and shifts from a drone-like echo, to a punctured, industrial noise, to indecipherable whispering voices drifting into the landscape.

About artist

Ingri Midgard Fiksdal is a choreographer and performer based in Oslo, working in a variety of formats, from theater and dance to interdisciplinary experiments where the audience becomes an important part of the atmospheric visual and audible landscape. In 2019 she finished a PhD in artistic research at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, and her work has in recent years taken her into discourses on perspective and privilege. Ingri is currently working on a number of projects addressing the intersection between the post-anthropocentric and the decolonial from a feminist perspective. Ingri is concerned with how practise and theory are entangled in her work in a way where neither is perceived as anterior to the other. In recent years her works have been performed at renowned dance and theater festivals in Brussels, Vienna, Rome, Salzburg, etc.
