Ashley Fure - Hive Rise


Im Rahmen des / Within: CTM 2020 Liminal

Composer and installation artist Ashley Fure explores the kinetic side of sound with “Hive Rise,” created in collaboration with interdisciplinary artist and director Lilleth Glimcher. Fure’s work stems from a belief that the sonic is social and the aesthetic is political. Blurring false binaries between formalism and conceptualism, abstraction and identity, onto-aesthetics and the social turn, her work pursues a micropolitical materialism that manifests on multiple scales. “Hive Rise” delves into the site-specific magic of Berghain with a hand-picked ensemble performing with custom 3D-printed megaphones. Producing focused vectors of sound, they join Berghain’s formidable subwoofers in a crescendoing composition as the performers move around the building exploring posthuman kink, ritual acoustics, and the networked perceptions of the migratory hive mind. The piece is a co-commission between CTM and DAAD’s Berliner Künstlerprogramm.
