<nettime-ann> [event] [Oct 23 London] Closing event: Orchestra of Anxiety


Sunday 23rd of October 2005, 3.30 pm = 8.30 pm
Come to the farewell performance and use the last opportunity to play
the
Razor-wire Harp yourself!

'Orchestra of Anxiety' Manu Luksch and Mukul Patel

The Orchestra of Anxiety is a collection of instruments that use
materials
and technologies from the security and surveillance industries. The
central
focus of the installation is a harp, traditionally regarded as a sacred
or
metaphysical instrument. However, unlike standard harps, this one is
strung
with razor wire, requiring the harpist to wear protective gloves while
playing.=A0Touching a string triggers multiple projections and sound
sources
in the gallery.

For this new work to be first shown at Watermans Gallery,  artists Manu
Luksch and Mukul Patel expand their ongoing explorations of the concept
of
security. While 'security' can be seen as desire, as ideology, as
illusion
but never as a garuanteed status quo, socio-political measures of
control
have been implemented in the name of security. The security industry is
one
of the fastest growing sectors this decade, and is worth hundreds of
billions of dollars annually. The participative installation piece,
Orchestra of Anxiety, deploys security and surveillance technologies in
an
unusual and playful context, prompting visitors to reflect on their
personal
sense of security and their relationship with public fears.=A0
