ARTIST TALK: AMIE SIEGEL IN COLLABORATION WITH ARKDES

Thu 6 oct6:00 pm

Amie Siegel, whose 2022 work The Silence is currently on view at ArkDes, will be in conversation with Theodor Ringborg on 6 October at 6 pm.

Register for the online artist talk here.

Siegel is known for her meticulously constructed works that trace and perform systems of value, examine relationships between objects and spaces, and expose the plasticity of the moving image through sound and performance. Her compelling, multi-layered approach often reveals new meaning in narrativizing systems of power and economic structures as it examines the very aesthetics and mechanisms of image and sound production.

A double-screen video installation composed of two alternating segments —each performed and filmed in churches designed by Sigurd Lewerentz: St. Mark’s in Stockholm and St. Peter’s in Klippan —The Silence considers the relationship between architecture, music, sound and the immaterial. The Silence (2022) is Siegel’s first work made and exhibited in Sweden.
