Vinyl, terror & Horror
Marie Kølbæk Iversen
Emphasizing the presence of technology and the concreteness of feedback loops, the performances and installations of Marie Kølbæk Iversen challenge representational powers of mediation by reducing it to those material properties through which it is in excess of itself: patterns, waves, vibrations, flows. Media are thus conceived as a multiplicity of forces and intermediaries that are staged and traced through the effects and affects they elicit across human, machinic, geological, and geopolitical bodies, and which massage and shape subjectivity through their interaction with emergent realities; a virtuality that is inseparably bound up with the real without resembling it.
