Work for Live Art Denmark
2014 “Nu(?)” at Hitparaden 2
Søren brought some friends along for his performance “Nu(?)” at our second Hitparaden festival of international performance art. On a screen in the back of the small stage, a wild chain of video associations was projected, while the performers in the foreground remained half obscure in the half light. Phantastic costume creations and kitsch props clashed with snippets of documentary film from the Iraq war, until finally the screen is taken over by a performer in a monster mask, rolling in a bathtub and crying for his mom. A disturbing tour de force of images and sounds.
About the Artist
Søren lives and works in Aarhus, Denmark. He graduated from The Jutland Art Academy in 2015 and studied at the advanced Diploma Program at Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology in Bangalore, India, from 2013 to 2014. Much of his work connects religious imagery with outdated technology. Søren experiments within a broad artistic field, ranging from images, installations and video to performance art, often based on sound. One of his particular focuses is ‘lo-fi’-technology, such as websites or software with very simple architectures, or Microsoft’s drawing programme Paint, which comprises the fundament for his artistic practice.
Maybe having a personal website would be too high tech for Søren. All we can find on the web are this blog from a performance space he co-directs in Aarhus, with the last post from 2016, and a facebook page announcing more recent activities of the same space.
