TORI WRåNES

FRI 12 JUNE Artist Talk at the Hub
SAT 13 JUNE part of the evening program at Defibrillator Gallery

TORI WRåNES (NORWAY) is a Norwegian artist and vocalist. She works mainly with performance, combining voice and sculpture as point of departure. Her use of sounds, costumes, props, architecture and sculptures deforms her appearance and creates new dreamlike constellations.

Her recent works include STONE and SINGER commissioned for the 19Th Biennale of Sydney 2014, where Wrånes appears as a troll, singing into her tail. The voice comes out of a big rock pendulum above her head. The building was filled up with elevated brass players, which made it echo in the big turbine hall at Cockatoo Island. In her last production YOUR NEXT VACATION IS CALLING, at Lilith Performance Studio in Malmø, Sweden, Wrånes transferred the whole space into a 3-dimentional abstract painting; furniture’s where thrown up on the walls, and beanbag hovered in the room as planets or bunches of grapes. It appeared as some sort of musical deluge of colours and movements, as to cheer on a floating chaos without words, determined by rhythm and moods.
