Instructions to Make Use of an Already Present Itch
MetadataShow full item record
The speculation in the film The Other Wild is spun further in the sound installation Instructions to Make Use of an Already Present Itch (15 min): voices tell about their meeting with a fossil of a trilobite, an extinct group of marine arthropods which lived approximately 540-250 million years ago, and which there are particularly many fossils of in the Oslo area. The sound is based upon a series of conversations Liv Bugge has held in the course of the last several years, where methods taken from animal communication are tried in a telepathic conversation with the fossil. The conversation is an exercise in non-linear methods to relate to historic existences and concepts about time, as well as using the entire body as a picture-producing apparatus. The casts on display in the bench are borrowed from the Natural History Museum in Oslo, with the exception of three of the artist’s own casts from Ullersmo prison.
Sound installation (15 min) in Liv Bugge's exhibition The Other Wild, at Interkulturelt Museum, Oslo 15.11.18 - 16.12.18. Part of Liv Bugge's PhD project The Other Wild: Touching Art as Confrontation.
