And All the Questionmarks Started to Sing

9.–17. september 2010

And All the Questionmarks Started to Sing is a composition in the form of a hybrid between performance, concert and installation . A transparent though complex work with an overhwelming richness of details. It might be described as an art-machine played by musicians, performers and robots.

...Questionmarks... is a work that only slowly reveals all it’s secrets, it’s underlying stories and inner logic. We enter a state of excited surprise that all we wonder about starts to sing instead of giving answers. Many artists of different backgrounds have left their prints on this work. Ensuring a multitude of ideas threatening to tear the work apart, artistic magnitude and in consequence an articulation of the composition The elements are tied together by kinship, proximity, simultaneity and the belief that differing materials appear as a well moulded whole under the composition.
