This episode is in Swedish
In this conversation between the artist Hanna Ljungh and curator Karin Bähler Lavér, the becoming and the components of the performative sound piece Seismic event are unfolded. The work has been a part of the biennial exhibition at Välkommaskolan in Malmberget and deals with the ongoing mining of iron ore in the area.
A seismic event is a report from the mining company of a tremor, a tremor that occurs when the natural tension in the rock changes due to the quarrying of ore. Listen to Hanna Ljungh speak of time, of material and immaterial traces and processes and of her interest in the soil we walk on.
The work Seismic Event can be heard in full here.
