The genesis of the principal visual material for this project was a shoot, in an immense cistern filled with water, which lasted six consecutive days. The performer had to be immersed for over eight hours a day in the glass tank, oscillating between weightlessness and lack of oxygen. With the aid of various digital video recording and photographic systems Herman Kolgen assembled many series of temporal sequences, images that he then assembled into a flexible and modular body. Its a matter of a narrative progression, in perpetual circles of influence and movement, where the real is in dislocation.
Herman Kolgen is a Canadian multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in Montreal. A true audiocinetic sculptor, he draws his primary material from the intimate relationship between sound and image. Kolgen works to create objects that assume the form of installations, video and film works, performances and sound sculptures.
