GREENLAND
    * Jacob Kirkegaard's new audio visual work on waste, TESTIMONIUM, will be shown at Nuuk Art Museum.

DENMARK
    * New work entitled EN BY I RUSLAND for Urban Sound Art Festival STRUER // TRACKS.
About the work:
In Danish, the expression “A town in Russia” (“En by i Rusland”) is used as a metaphor for something unknown or alien. The work is created from field recordings of different urban locations in Russia such as a train station, a street corner, a square, a residential area, a playground, a graveyard or a public park. With the aim to dissolve the metaphor for "A town in Russia" as the concept of the alien, the field recordings from a 'Russian town' are then installed in the Danish town called Struer in exact similar locations: i.e. the ambient sounds from a train station somewhere in Russia will be heard in the train station in Denmark, the sound from a street corner somewhere in Russia will be heard in a town somewhere in Denmark. August 23.

KENYA
    * World premiere of TESTIMONIUM at UN-HABITAT in Nairobi, May 30th

DENMARK
    World premiere of OPUS MORS at BLOOM - Festival for Nature and Science. Opus Mors is a contemplative listening space for one of the most existential and natural aspects of being alive, which is death. The project portrays the four most common sound environments that human body will be surrounded by or exposed to in the immediate post mortem: a morgue, autopsy, decomposition and cremation, events that no one will ever get to sense on their own bodies because of the very fact of death. The work can be experienced as installation at the Cisterns in Copenhagen on May 25th and 26th

    Another world premiere from Kirkegaard is his new choir piece entitled MORGUE. It is composed especially on occassion of the BLOOM - Festival for Nature and Science, from the ambient tones and air ventilation recordings from a morgue. MORGUE will be performed by ARS NOVA Copenhagen and Allegrokoret. The three concerts will be performed in Cisternerne in the evening of Saturday the 25th. Get tickets here:

DENMARK
    BLACK METAL SQUARE # 1 is a freely hanging black metal plate whose subtle natural vibrations are amplified and played back into itself, evoking its resonant frequencies. The installation refers to Kazimir Malevich’s famous painting Black Square from 1915 and his quote ‘It is from zero, in zero, that the true movement of being begins’. The astronomer Robert Fludd’s drawing of the black square from 1617 inscribed with the phrase ‘et sic in infinitum’ (and so on to infinity) is also an inspirational source for Jacob Kirkegaard's black square, who asks the question: ’but how does the black square sound?". Showing at Galleri Tom Christoffersen, Copenhagen, 19th - 26th and opening with live performance on the 18th
    
Artist talk and live performance at Jyderup Højskole. Jan 31st and Feb 1st.
