BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

We are pleased to announce the forthcoming exhibition Speaking in Tongues by Ann Lislegaard.

\n

Speaking in Tongues is a continuation of Ann Lislegaard’s exploration of science fiction as a genre and frame for critical reflection on notions of language\, gender-rol es\, socio-political structures and the future. For Ann Lislegaard the genr e of science fiction is used as a laboratory where transformative scenarios and unstable ideas can be staged and tested.

\n

Ann Lislegaard will show her latest animation Oracle (2012) based on P.K. Dick’s “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheeps?” In the animation two owls\, or maybe the double of the other\, are having a monologue of aphorisms. The fragments in the an imation could be prophecies from the I-Ching or a feminist speaking in tong ues. The doubled owl is as if unaware of its role as the oracle\, having th e words\, the languages and the manipulated soundtrack from the film “Blade Runner”(by Ridley Scott) flow through the vibrating body. The doubled owl is in an ongoing search of its notional coherence of self and gender.

\n

With her project Time Machine (2011)\, an animated tal king fox-like creature is projected into a folded mirror box. The fox-like creature delivers a stuttering account of a visit to a distant future. Thro ughout the story\, the voice and the narrative\, seems on the edge of colla pse. Words are repeated\, languages are mixed and sentences dissolve\; as i f this grand journey is equally an uncertain journey into the very words th at make up the construction of narrative itself.

\n

In the exhibition: Speaking in Tongues\, you will find other works like the animations Salt Crystal and Bellona. Salt C rystal is an animation made a new every time it is on show. Salt C rystal is drawn and then animated from one single crystal of the “Eigh t-Part-Piece” work by Robert Smithson.Both Bellona\, the animated fictitious city and the print of Wonder Woman are related to the writer Sam uel R. Delany.

\n

High and low culture is strongly present in the show. Ann Lislegaard will show a series of new drawings as well.
