Henrik Hakansson

Birdconcert Oct. 23, 2005 (Carduelis carduelis) Part 1

‘A set to consist of a single bird performing its natural voice live onstage. The full set is with audience and 16mm film production focusing on the bird’s performance and the full aspect of the surroundings. The set should be open to the public at a venue directed toward musical performances.’

Henrik Håkansson, London, July 2005

A huh. "Sound sculpture" coupled with these literally breathing installations, and the obvious injection of a little bit of oomph and may I whisper under my breath, substance, to the now seemingly popular eco-art/design trend, makes Hakansson someone worth reading about- Mousse magazines issue 21 will offer a little insight.
