Liminaria 2017

Trond Lossius and myself are currently on a residency in Terranova, Arpaisa, southern Italy, as part of Liminaria, an international sound art project curated by Leandro Pisano and beatrice Ferrara. This residency is hosted by TANA (Terranova Arte Natura) an art and ecology project initiated by Tiziana de Tora and Marco Papa. Our participation is the result of a collaboration agreement between Bergen Center for Electronic Art (BEK) and Limiaria. It is planned to follow this up with a visit to Norway in 2018 or 2019 by Italian participants in the project. We have been making field recordings in sound and video around the district in the natural landscape and in neighbouring villages. The residency concludes with a screening event on Saturday 9 September.

The Atmospherics, 2017 developments.

The Atmospherics, an ongoing sound and video project by Jeremy Welsh and Trond Lossius is currently in its fourth year, and will continue into 2018 and beyond, taking on new forms as it develops. 2017 began with a new installation at HardingarT, in Utne, Hardanger, which co-incidentally was also one of the locations used for the first field recordings made for The Atmospherics. This was the sixth installation in the series and was entitled "The Atmospherics 6: The Seat With The Clearest View". It was comprised of three HD video projections and an eight channel surround sound installation. The next phase will take place in September as part of Liminaria 2017, an international sound art residency and workshop in the region of Fortore, Italy.

17th. Seoul International New Media Festival

I'm happy to be showing my video work I.O.D. (1984) as part of a retrospective programme of video art from Norway within the 17th. Seoul International New Media Festival. The programme has been curated by Farhad Kalantary, director of Atopia, Oslo.

I.O.D. has previously been shown at numerous video art and experimental film festivals since it was premiered in 1984. It won an award at the 1984 Tokyo International Video Festival, and has been tv broadcast in several countries including the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and Sweden. In 2013 it was included in a major exhibition of video art at the National Museum, Oslo, where it is also part of the museum's permanent collection.

London, March 2017

Two days spent in London on 9th. - 10th. March 2017, mainly for the occasion of "Emergence From The Underground", a film & video screening dedicated to the memory of Mike O'Pray, founder of the Film & Video Umbrella. The programme was screened  at the BFI South Bank/National Film Theatre, introduced by William Fowler, Steven Bode and myself. Aside from attending this event, I visited the Wolfgang Tillmans exhibition at Tate Modern and Eduardo Paolozzi at The Whitechapel Gallery. Both good exhibitions. And in between I walked the streets of London, more or less aimlessly, occasionally pausing to photograph small details encountered en route. Photos below, not in chronological order. At the Tate bookshop I acquired, and then rapidly read, Jon Day's "Cyclogeography: journeys of a London bicycle courier". A good addition to my growing library of books about places/walking/exploring etc.

Three Rooms

Three Rooms was a concert held on Friday 2 December in Galleri KiT at Trondheim Academy of Fine Art, NTNU. The concert featured three solo performances by Michael Francis Duch (double bass), Kim Myhr (guitar & electronics) and Ingar Zach (percussion & electronics) with video projections by Jeremy Welsh. The concert was part of an ongoing collaboration between Duch and Welsh, with the aim of establishing a research platform for contemporary music, visual art and performance, focussed on site-specific and place-related concerts, events and exhibitions.

Video documentation of the three performances can be viewed here:
