mira calix

6 october 2007

Mira Calix, one of the most influential artists on the contemporary electronic music scene, marks the dawn of Pollinaria with a site-specific work conceived as a visceral initiation rite. A composition that unites the northern and southern hemispheres of the world, combining the sounds, voices, cries and images of a South African tempestuous nature, deeply-rooted in the artist’s background, with the milder language of European rural habitats

In a centuries-old agrarian outpost, Mira Calix celebrates a conflux between memory and the future, merging organic and synthetic tones. Her narrative traverses multiple scales of time and space, releasing new generative forces in the forgotten animal stable and in the rooms once populated by families of farmers _

Mira Calix’s ritual is in unison with the mission it launched, aiming to express the pure state of the place and to pervade the spirit of its present inhabitants. The work’s magnetic trajectory captures and shapes feelings that emerge from the
depths of the rural world and from concealed inner landscapes _______
