基礎や基盤を意味する インフラ INFRAという名前は、アーティスト、参加者にとっての新しい基盤を意味しています。

Berlin’s 3hd Festival and Tokyo-based EBM(T) Gallery are combining forces to work on インフラ INFRA 2017 in Tokyo, running August 19 to 26.

An ambitious festival of art, music, and thought in the digital age, the program unfolds in museums, galleries, clubs, and online.

The name インフラ INFRA is a play on the abbreviated form of ‘infrastructure,’ and breaks new ground for participants.

Artists

Green Music

Francesco Cavaliere and Tomoko Sauvage re-interpret the work by the fluxus artist and composer Henning Christiansen. For their installation and performance, the duo plays green sculptures and instruments combining mineral, glass, plants and painted synthesizers.

Y.Ohashi

Y.Ohashi is a Japanese producer who gets inspiration from sceneries and phenomena experienced when in solitude. Placing pieces of collected recordings, Ohashi replays broken pieces of nostalgia. Between 2015 and 2016, he has released four albums through his own Bandcamp. In 2016, ein Nebelhaftes Zimmer was released through Wasabi Tapes.

IKU

Johanna Odersky a.k.a IKU is a Frankfurt-based artist whose interests and music is circulated around the aesthetic form of recursion. Currently studying Fine Arts at Städelschule, she uses this approach as a loose structure for creating, as well as erasing, mood and meaning. Recontextualization and self-reference are used to bring to mind different time frames and an alternative space to our linear histories and understanding of being.
