Biennale LAB; What Happens Now

featuring collaborative works by FSM 17 artists Dylan Martorell and Benjamin Hancock

what happens now.jpg

What Happens Now? Biennale Lab Melbourne 2016 curated by Natalie King, with a closing ceremony performance by Hiromi Tango with FSM 2017 contributors Dylan Martorell creating a live robot orchestra soundtrack and movement by Benjamin Hancock. 

"Clanging with energy to interrupt this quiet moment was Dylan Martorell’s self-playing instrument, to which Hiromi TangoBenjamin Hancock and Biennial Lab volunteers performed. Striking and sparkly, Hancock’s performance with Hiromi, who was decked out in matter accumulated from the market, echoed a sensitivity and emotional capacity to think the space via bodily movement." Text by Sarah Werkmeister from Biennale Lab program.

Review :

"Dylan Martorell’s interactive installation – which allows participants to make their own primitive electronic music by completing the circuit between various sensors and objects – perhaps offers the most telling summation of Future Primitive’s missive. Using domestic junk and street-side detritus collected the world over to build a kind of musical shrine, it cobbles together what is readily available to forge a different set of possibilities. 

Martorell’s cooption of supposedly primitive techniques is of social and political resonance. Strung and taped together, the work offers cues, clues and directions as to how we can move forward in an age of mass consumption, waste and excess." Dan Rule, Broadsheet
