About this Event

Artists Polina Medvedeva and Andreas Kühne present an interactive exhibition and a one-off performance exploring music subcultures of Brighton, zeroing in on non-conformity and defiance of standard lifestyles in our digital age.

A live, improvised audio-visual performance. The artists collaborate with local musicians Phonetic, Bobbie Johnson, Ollie Hutchison and Marshall Mandiangu to create a collective portrait of, and a give a platform to, Brighton’s extraordinary youth culture.

This piece is an extension of The Informals II interactive exhibition, showing at Lighthouse throughout the Festival. More information here: http://www.lighthouse.org.uk/programme/the-informals-ii-brighton-festival-may-2020

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:

Andreas Kühne

Andreas Kühne (1988, the Netherlands) is an improviser, sound artist, and drummer. His art practice involves creating audiovisual works and field improvisations by revealing the musical qualities of on-site inert objects with live electronic setups for real-time generation and manipulation.

He is a Master of Music graduate from the ArtEZ University of Arts, and the founder and curator of the interdisciplinary concert series RAMSES/ MPRO in Amsterdam.

Recent performances include; A4 cultural space, Bratislava; Lofoten International Art Festival, Solvaer; Sonic Acts Festival, Amsterdam; Inversia Festival, Murmansk; Muziekgebouw, Amsterdam; Overkill Festival, Enschede; State of Fashion Exhibition, Arnhem; Dutch National Opera & Ballet, Amsterdam.

Polina Medvedeva

Polina Medvedeva is a Russian-Dutch (documentary) filmmaker and artist based in Amsterdam. Her work researches the notion of informality, focusing on informal economies and non-conformist communal structures, their principles influencing the aesthetics of her videos.

Medvedeva’s works have been exhibited at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels; Al-Ma’mal Foundation for Contemporary Art, Jerusalem; Rotterdam City Theatre; Art Brussels; Centre of Fine Arts Groningen; De Nieuwe Vide gallery, Haarlem and screened during IDFA Docs for Sale and on VPRO among others.

Phonetic

Phonetic is an artist who is already synonymous with Brighton’s thriving hip hop scene, thanks to her skills on the mic, combined with her unwavering creative drive. That drive and talent go way beyond her 21 years and they are good signifiers as to why she has already earned support slots for a number of notable artists and acts, including Rag’N’Bone Man, Children of Zeus, Skinnyman, LEVELZ, Dr Syntax and Amy True.

Phonetic continues to build her career with more live shows and collaborations, as well as her very first solo project – The Dictionary of Proverbs LP – which promises to launch into the UK scene and beyond.

The Informals II is a new commission by Lighthouse and Brighton Festival, with support from Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, and Mondrian Fund. The Informals was originally commissioned by Sonic Acts and Inverse Festival, Murmansk.
