Uncloud Festival brings world’s finest with Tundra and 404.zero from St. Petersburg to the Netherlands. Festival for audiovisual art opens a pop-up museum on the 30th of October in Utrecht

Uncloud Festival opens the doors of the former Pieter Baan Centrum in Utrecht from October 30th to November 21st. Uncloud:’Transliminal’ curates over 20 (inter)national artists to explore the boundaries of space, visuals and sound and some breathtaking works of art celebrate their Dutch premiere.

Transliminal
With this year’s theme, Transliminal, Uncloud refers to the temporary estrangement that takes place during the intermediate phase of a transformation, of which the final destination is unknown. As such, Transliminal not only is a metaphor for the current state of the world as we currently live it, but also represents the process the former psychiatric observation institute is undergoing by losing its original function. This theme also describes the process that the visitor undergoes throughout the exhibition: a fascinating transformation of multi-sensory perception.

Exhibition program
Uncloud: ’Transliminal’ presents works of artists and collectives like 404.zero (RUS), Tundra (RUS), Tatsuru Arai (JPN) and Arash Akbari (IRN).

Tundra is a multidisciplinary collective from St. Petersburg, specialized in multimedia performance and interactive audiovisual installation. At Uncloud they will present their newest work ‘ROW’, an installation that makes use of algorithms to translate data from the direct surroundings into an intriguing audiovisual experience.

Also from St. Petersburg is 404.zero, the ambitious art- and inventors duo consisting of Kristina Karphysheva and Aleksandr Letsius who create innovative experiences based on their expertise in maths, code and the science of sound. 404.zero pushes the boundaries by working with digital matter and changes the use of sound and image in a breathtaking way.

Arash Akbari presents ‘Sensimotor’, an audiovisual environment based on the interactions of visitors in the physical space.

With ‘Quantum’, Tatsuru Arai speculates about the future of aesthetics in a world where we achieved Quantum Supremacy, a world that is orchestrated by artificial intelligence.

Tickets are available via the Uncloud website and ticketshop.

The number of visitors is regulated in accordance with the current and expected COVID-19 measures to guarantee a safe visit to the exhibition.
