Location: SOLU

On November, 2nd from 19h to 20h30, HAB artists Noora Sandgren and Till Bovermann warmly welcome you to an evening of soundscapes and discussions in relation to the Atmospheric Encounters exhibition. We will start the evening with a guided tour through the exhibition and the opportunity to dive into the politics of approaching Other-than-humans. This will be followed by a soundscape performance with Till Bovermann, framing and extending on "flock" (H. Imlach/T. Bovermann), one of the artworks in the exhibition.

Listening to Atmospheric Encounters is related to the current exhibition Atmospheric Encounters by High Altitude Bioprospecting (HAB). The event is part of the Helsinki Environmental Humanities Month in November.

Noora Sandgren is a visual artist working with photography and related installation, texts and embodied practice. She is interested in the theme of fluidity, different materialities and questions of entanglement. Noora collaborates with weather, insects, soil and outdated light-sensitive materials.

Till Bovermann is an artist and scientist working with field recordings and interactive sound programming to create sonic experiences of immersion and reflection. Till currently works for the art-science project Rotting Sounds at University for Applied Arts, Vienna. He is also part of the artistic collective friendly.organisms.
