About BZZZ! International Sound Art Festival, Sveriges Television
But The Show Must Go On!
Harp Art Lab is open every weekend Friday to Sunday when you can experience some amazing site specific installations made for the festival. The exhibition consists of 12 site-specific works connected to the theme of honey bees: non camera animations, conceptual computer games, interactive sound sculptures, video installations, wallpaintings, drawings and custom built instruments.
In recent years, bee colonies have collapsed in several parts of the world. Nobody knows for sure why, but a variety of different and sometimes contested theories have been presented and debated.
To put focus on this issue HARP ART LAB invited artists and beekeepers to create installations and performances connected to the theme of honey bees, thereby transforming Harplinge windmill into a "hive" of sounds. The response have been overwhelming with participators from Sweden, Poland, Ireland, UK, Norway, Lithuania, USA, Finland and Turkey. The ambition to create processes in the community between local residents and artists from abroad, have been achieved.
