Artist Talk with Alexander Tillegreen and Stina Hasse Jørgensen: phantom words, situated listening, and artificial voices

Currently exhibiting artist and composer Alexander Tillegreen meets Stine Hasse Jørgensen, researcher of sound art and voices, for a conversation on how what we hear differs based on our cultural background and subconscious.

The conversation’s starting point will be Tillegreen’s exhibition Shift at O—Overgaden. The exhibition, which consists of sound installations, painting, sculpture, and photography, concerns itself with how our listening is situated, and what different types of voices mean for the listening experience.

The Artist Talk will be conducted in Danish.
The event is free for all and does not require registration. As always, entry is free to O—Overgaden's exhibitions, all of which can be explored before and after the event.

Stina Hasse Jørgensen is a researcher at Affective Interactions and Relations (AIR Lab) at the Institute of Digital Design, IT University of Copenhagen. Hasse Jørgensen investigates the politics and aesthetics of voice from a practice-based feminist activist standpoint. Her research and practice unfold in the collectives For More than one voice, a collaboration between Hasse Jørgensen and the artist Jane Jin Kaisen, and i [multi´vocal], which she runs alongside DJ Frederik Tollund Juutilainen, interaction designer Nina Højholdt, sound artist Alice Emily Baird, and programmer Mads Pelt. i [multi´vocal] uses machine-learning techniques to explore ways of generating and applying different artificial voices.

Alexander Tillegreen was educated at Städelschule (DE) and the Cooper Union School of Art (US). Parallel to this, he has studied art history and sound studies at Copenhagen University. Tillegreen is also involved with artistic research at Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics. His works have been shown at MMK, Museum für Moderne Kunst (DE), the CTM Festival (DE), Fotografisk Center (DK), the National Gallery of Denmark, and Kunsthalle Darmstadt (DE). He has just opened a solo show at the museum FuturDome (IT) and will be releasing his first album on the label raster-media.
