In "Movements of the Body Electric", Danish cellist and performer Josefine Opsahl unites her classical music background and new cello composition with a liberating openness to electronic sounds, erratic movements and the simultaneous use of electronics.
Her work reflects her own artistic search towards understanding the role of art in our society and the tension between tradition and renewal, expertise and intuition.
Inspired by Walt Whitman’s poem “I Sing the Body Electric”, Opsahl has created her current performance about the relation between the down-to-earth “acoustic” body and the surrounding digital reality.
Josefine Opsahl is a remarkable artist, cellist and composer who connects music, art, performance and spaces in her works and ideas. She extends her classical musical training, knowledge of its history, perception of art and self into different new medias of expression.
Opsahl will perform in our Ambereum installation.
