2021 Doktortjønna, Røros Museum

Exhibition "SPOR/TRACKS" opens at Doktortjønna June 19 from 11 am - 1 pm

Tracks is an outdoor installation transmitting sounds from the underground. The composition is built on a field trips and research and recordings of reindeers communication and in particular a certain "clicking" sound they make with their hinter legs.

The audience can find 16 different tracks placed in the soil in a circle. By searching for sound vibrations and concentrated listening the audience can hear the quiet composition moving around on the surface of the grass field. The whole installation is powered by a wind mill and solar panels.

The opening will be held more quietly than usual due to covid-19, where a general opening still is in process.

Open from 19th of June- August 8th, 2021.

At Gråebrien Sijti in Brekken all the research took place and was realized thanks to Inge Even Danielsen, who opened the gate to the reindeers for me.

Thanks go to: Gråebrien Sijti and Røros Museene.

Support received from: Røros Council, Trøndelag County, BHK Billedkunstnernes Vederlagsfond, Norwegian Arts Council/Sound and Image and KORO.
