FINDLAY // SANDSMARK
fractured bones/ let’s get lost 2011/2012
<<fractured bones/ let’s get lost>> by Iver Findlay//Marit Sandsmark
with Pål Asle Pettersen, Eric Dyer and Victor E. Morales.
<<fractured bones/ let’s get lost>> draws on ‘disappearance’ impulses to create a performance that brushes across theater/ dance/ live music/ and video installation to make a slippery and nebulous take on futurism.
With ‘fractured/ lost’, Findlay//Sandsmark (US/NO) conspire with musician/composer Pål Asle Pettersen, performer Eric Dyer (radiohole) and performer/video game modder Victor E. Morales.
Working from a parable about a ‘disappearer’, the piece explores the idea of object permanence and performance while picking apart other hard-boiled motifs to create a dialectic between the present and the future, the interior and the exterior. The performance is set across a landscape of projections and trashed video monitors revealing a discourse over the natural and synthetic.

Am I in? (or out?) Am I lost? (Or found?)
