Artist Nils Bech works with voice, movement, music, and text, conceiving performances that are often staged or erupt spontaneously in galleries, bars, or public spaces. Bech describes his work as the “creation of rituals” through which he transforms and elevates emotional circumstances from his own life.
Look Inside is based on his upcoming album, which includes collaborations with Giske (saxophone and electronics) and Tcherepnin (piano and electronics). The songs chart a chronology of events that have transpired over the last six months for Bech. These include meeting and breaking up with his boyfriend, as well as figuring out how to continue doing what he always knew he loved: performing and making art.
Organized by Art Since the Summer of ’69 and Rhizome, presented as part of Performa 11.
