The People's BunkerLove 2013
Dansk version på blog
. Facebook invitation - BunkerLove, 21 July
. Flyer - English
After a wonderfully CHILLED BunkerLove 2013 at a Regelbau 668 with an existing nest of swallows, we now head determinedly towards the bunker Battery in Furreby and to the PEOPLES' BunkerLove on Sunday 21st July starting at 15.00. The festival will be working with transformation and sensitivity and we want to use the bunkers to celebrate as well as warn of the power of humankind. We will be presenting 7 works and we are hoping for a mild wind for everyone's comfort on the beach just north of Løkken.
Floating bunker transformation - Erik Peitersen (DK)
Heart of Darkness - architectonic reorientation - Elin Strand Ruin and Spridd (S)
Akurat - video art about change. The work is dedicated to the "En af os" association - Objartiste (DK/PL)
Inversion - solar powered sound installation - Christian Skjødt (DK)
Tilted - user determined, responsive environment - Edit E. Vizer (DK/HU)
Piano Concerto in a bunker - Dominik Blasko (DK/SK)
A Walk in the Dark - graveyard drama in a bunker landscape - Lars Ditlev Johansen, Kaare Bjørn Vad, Marie Eriksen, Anita Holst Sørensen, Birthe Rosenfeldt and Lars Olsen (DK)
We start at 15.00 with an opening speech by Sven Bertelsen, Head of Culture and Leisure in Hjørring municipality and the program continues until around 20.00. Weather permitting, the beach party will continue with an evening chillout. We will be putting the program and other practical details on the festival's Facebook page towards the end of the week. http://bunkerlove.dk/furreby2013/
As a warm-up to the festival, A Walk in the Dark
will be performed on Friday and Saturday in Vendsyssel's plantation in Løkken at 21.30.
Dreams of Stone (Drømme af sten)
BunkerLove 2013 has received a festival song from Natmandskomplottet: Drømme af sten
, directly inspired by the bunkers. We are incredibly pleased with this slightly Balstyrko-esque piece which captures the heart of the project. Am I dreaming or am I awake? We hope that somebody will make a BunkerLove video for the number - we have it in high quality too - write to firstname.lastname@example.org
. Natmandskomplottet would like to be credited collectively and see the results here. It is so motivating and cheering to see this. Thanks to everyone contributing actively as well as passively. The bunkers in Hirtshals and Grønhøj will never be the same again and now we are also going to make the ones in Furreby buzz with activity on Sunday. We are looking forward to it <3
Please share press cuttings about BunkerLove on our Facebook wall
(are there any Nordjyske
readers amongst us?) we still have a lot of wind in our ears. Voluntary help is very welcome as assistance to the artists as well as the practical tasks this week and on the day of the festival on Sunday. Write to email@example.com
if you want to participate or just turn up.
Please note that important elements of the Alert BunkerLove Festival are still on display in Hirtshals
