Sequences VII: Plumbing

Sequences VII presents a spectrum of video installations, exhibitions, screenings, performances and discussions centred on the theme of “Plumbing,” highlighting the often-unseen infrastructure that underlies digital communication and its complex network of pipes and wires and its metaphorical correspondence with the physical structure of the body as well as of the earth.

The seventh edition looks at the developments in the areas of DIY culture, body visualization and the dynamic possibilities offered by installation, sound and time-based media with an unbiased approach which embraces, rather than avoids, notions of amateurism, improvisation, “glitch” aesthetics and bottom-up creative initiative.

Drawing on influences from the local environment as well as the global phenomenon of data space, Sequences VII includes a selection of 26 artists, performers and manipulators of images, data and bodies who were keen to exchange, mix and reconfigure thoughts, doubts, works, time and space. Sequences VII will take place in publicly-funded and commercial galleries, artist-run spaces, project spaces and informal locations in Reykjavík.
