Projects for EC1 24H:
Artist: Filip Vest
In 4 phases of artistic exploration, examination and cross-sectioning of different enthological concepts of therapy, both ancient and contemporary, the exhibition space will transform throughout the day and provide a transcendental frame for visitors and Birds alike.

‘Talking Frame – Expanded object. An interactive audio experience of the Copenhagen Landscape’
Artist: Budhaditya Chattopadhyay
The ongoing project “Expanded Object” responds to a crucial question: whether “sound” can be “exhibited” as an artistic object and whether exhibiting sound works is problematic considering the nature and characteristics of sound predominantly emerging as an invisible and immaterial phenomenon spilling over any artistic object framed within an exhibition setting. In addressing this fundamental question, the work “Talking Frame” examines how sound art can approach and negotiate materiality and objecthood within an exhibitory context by involving subjective contemplation triggered by a deliberate visual suggestion but a withdrawal of any visual information. The audio component of the work is derived from site-specific field recordings in Denmark during a Nano-residency hosted by Future Suburban Contemporary, culminating in a phenomenological survey of these sited situations by the author, augmenting each other randomly, and transforming by the presence of the viewer.
