A site-specific performance installation by Signe Becker, Rosalind Goldberg and Ingvild Langgård.

In Still Life, scenography, choreography and sound together create an ever changing tableau. The scenery first seems frozen and arrayed. In the course of time, it will grow and morph into living, three dimensional images with sound – constantly changing shape and meaning. Still Life is as much of a concert as a performance: the scenography and sound will be choreographed, the dancers will turn into scenography and the sound will be dancing.Still Life wants to challenge the idea of image; how we see and perceive images and how they, by subtle means, can
completely change their meaning.

Tableau Vivant is used as a way to work with time: the perception of time as well as the time range starting from the end of 19th century until today. Over the last hundred years technology has developed the usage of image and shaped our conception of reality. Looking at the images displayed in the core of industrialism till today’s constant flow of exposure of lives through social media, Still Life reflects on the contemporary paradigms of perception and the politics of images.
