Transforma presents Dark Flow
The artist group Transforma was founded in 2001 by Luke Bennett, Baris Hasselbach and Simon Krahl. They met while studying experimental film and media at the Berlin University of the Arts and and soon moved from making videos, sound works and images to installations, live cinema and performance.
Transforma has also produced work in collaboration with musicians such as Apparat, Dieter Meier, Alex Banks, Chloé as well as the theatre director Sebastian Hartmann, choreographer Sônia Mota and the artist Yro.
Transforma has performed live and exhibited at festivals and venues around the world e.g. KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, Barbican Centre in London, Moscow International Biennial for Young Art, FAD Festival de Arte Digital in Belo Horizonte, Art.Ware Festival in Hong Kong, Sequences Festival in Reykjavik, CTM Festival in Berlin, Todays Art in Den Haag and Deutsches Theater Berlin.
Dark Flow is an installation consisting of a liquid portal in a constant movement.
Playing with the idea of dimension(s) by discovering similarities in cosmic and microscopic motion, the work is as much an experiment in physics as it is an mystic shrine.
To enhance the effect of scale, close up views of the installation are being filmed and projected on different screens in the exhibition space.
