DELIQUIUM presents new and challenging work from across all contemporary media, ranging from performance, sound and noise through video, installation and poetry all the way artist talks and pulsating electronic music and video in combination. The focus is always on sound – the very edges of what is possible today – and on artists with a clear mission to expand our sense of what it means to experience radically challenging work.
This is an exhibition like no other – MILKandLEAD have excavated through layers of artistic production to bring out what is most uncanny about the world of sound today. The artists are all leaders, pioneers and risk-takers. they step outside of cultural norms in order to push our senses further – higher but also lower – into the dark as well as toward the light.
The artists at DELIQUIUM represent all that is best in multiple areas of experimental work. Every one has a clear vision, a path they have followed relentlessly. For MILKandLEAD, the important thing was to bring together disparate artists but with something like a shared vision of the troubled reality of being a human today (or posthuman…). Musicians and artists in DELIQUIUM offer a raw insight into what waits outside the human and cultural norms that supposedly protect us. These are shadows that make sounds, images, words, ideas, and above all, effects on those who encounter their work.
These are artists who want to push you as a listener, viewer, toucher, taster. They feel the competing powers that define human and inhuman experience and press this open the audience. This is work that requires the presence of the artist and the engagement – sometimes submission – of the public. Your senses will thank you for the embrace that is DELIQUIUM.
