Rachel Arianne Ogle (Australia)
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night, 2019

Dance Massive, Substation, visited 15/03/2019

Very minimalistic dance against the backdrop of sounds and projections generated in real time on intercepted radio and cosmic signals.

Just the kind of unexpected combo of elements in just the kind of aesthetics that I’m trying to engage with myself.

AGNSW Sydney / State Library of Victoria, Melbourne visited on 07/09/2019

I can’t wait to experience the performance itself…

Otherwise it is a good reminder that there rarely are reasons to consider something as ‘holy’ and ‘untouchable’ when making art – even if it is a nice grand piano or a classic piece of music that is also adopted as the national anthem of EU. I wonder if non-EU nationality of the artists plays any role in that… on the other hand I’d guess that not very many Europeans would be aware of EU anthem anyway…
