Herman Kolgen: 'Inject'

Date 27.07.2012

Deadline 27.07.2012

Synopsis

For one day only, artist and audiocinetic sculptor Herman Kolgen's award-winning installation Inject will open free to the public at Hengrove Park Leisure Centre. Projected on a giant screen at Hengrove's Olympic size pool, Inject depicts a human body immersed in a large cistern of water. Over 45 minutes the water pressure builds and the oxygen depletes, affecting the figure's nervous system. A remarkable sequence of live mixed sound and video illustrates a loss of touch with reality and invites a floating audience to consider the relationship between human biology and emotion.

Details

The Artist will be giving a talk on Wed 25 July at 18:30 at Watershed. Then on Fri 27, don your swimsuit and experience this stunning work at the pool: float in the water while the projection is played on a giant screen or simply watch from the spectator seats.

Performances at Hengrove are free and take place at 21:00 and 22:00. Book your free tickets to the performance here or call: +44 (0)117 927 5100
