David Sylvian-in cooperation with Atsushi Fukui uncommon deities
For Punktart 2011, the Punkt Festival and SKMU are pleased to collaborate on presenting the installation Uncommon Deities by David Sylvian. David Sylvian`s (b.1958 in London)artistic career began in the 1970s. He is now a renowned composer, musician, photographer and producer, having made numerous albums, both as solo productions and in cooperation with many world-famous musicians. He has also created a series of visual art projects. Uncommon Deities will be a cooperation between Sylvian and the Japanese artist Atsushi Fukui (b.1966, Aichi, Japan) where both sound recordings, wall painting and painting on paper will be part of the installation.
In the installation, Sylvian explores ideas related to universality, spirituality and general human existence, all og which extend beyond science and verge on an intuitive logic that presupposes a cultural heritage. The installation site will be the venue for performances in connetion with Punkt Festival (1-3 September 2011). Parallel to this event, we present works by Atsushi Fukui in the Paper space on the 1st floor.
