Significant Encounters is a work in three parts – a live performance, a sound installation and a video installation.
The work looks at how meaning can be constructed based on the coming-together of things. It considers how these things can be situated, put into dialogue with one another and disrupted through mutual encounter. These encounters create situations where obstacles are posed – either ethical, physical or material.
All parts of the work can be experienced in Sundhöllin swimming pool.
The live performance is a seated event which can be experienced from the side of the indoor pool. The video installation can experienced in all locker rooms. The sound installation can be experienced underwater in the shallow indoor pool.
