Get absorbed into the golden colours and meditative atmosphere in Ambereum.
Ambereum is an installation by German designer and artist Viron Erol Vert, inspired by the healing qualities of amber, Greek temples and the idea of merging pagan culture and Mediterranean mythology.
Use the installation to take a break and have a drink during the day, and experience the meeting between installation art, gastronomy and electronic music in the evening.
Ambereum will be a part of GRASP throughout the festival. Each day, there is a programme of live performances and events curated by Solvej Helweg Ovesen entitled "Our Body Electric".
“Our Body Electric” houses electronic and acoustic sound vibrations and digital criticism in a diverse performance programme. “Our Body Electric” looks into how we interact with others through our senses, how we electrify each other. Can we slow things down by being together through sound? And dare we allow ourselves to be disconnected from others for a while as well? What happens to our body when we interact in 3D (haptic space) instead of 2D, i.e. through our screens?
The title is inspired by Walt Whitman’s poem and statement on the equality and possible energy exchange of all bodies, “I Sing the Body Electric” (1855). A poem about the freeing and sharing of the senses – the male and female body – comparing attraction to the (back then) magic of electricity. It was the first time in history that a poet used the metaphor of electricity about the body and mutual attraction amongst bodies.
During GRASP, you can experience performances and events at Ambereum by Jakob Remin, Mårten Spångberg, Josefine Opsahl, Thea Soti and ILYICH.
