ISACS17: Lea Kannar-Lichtenberger

Deception: convergence of spaces brings context to time

Deception: convergence of spaces brings context to time
28.09.2017 to 30.09.2017

Under the chairmanship of Morten Søndergaard and Peter Weibel the conference »ISACS17: Resonant Worlds – Curating Sound, Art & Science« takes place at the ZKM from 28–30 September, 2017. The conference addresses and debates the resonant worlds of sound, art, science and curation.

ISACS17 (re)investigates the  intersections of sound, art and science from the perspective of artistic / creative curation. The participants are asked to showcase, and reflect on, their own practices from the perspective of how and why choices are made in order to make things »work« – in the sense that it resonates in/with other people, contexts, culture, society, history, and »the world«. These are perhaps issues of (and effects from) embodied experiences, of language games, of existence.


Lea Kannar-Lichtenberger, MA (2014), MFA (2016), (Sydney College of the Arts) is an artist exploring the connections between science and art. This paper presentation will centre around new media art works produced from time spent on Deception Island off Antarctica by Lea Kannar-Lichtenberger and post production in conjunction with composer and sound artist Maria Alfonsine. Lea’s environmental artworks have been exhibited at the Footprints Film Festival (Sydney), Venice Summer Academy (Palazzo Zenobia, Venice) Stunning Edge Exhibition Taiwan, the New York Hall of Science, Galway International Arts Festival, Harbour Sculpture (Sydney), Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize. Following a research trip in January 2017 to Antarctica, Lea completed a residency at Culture at Work and subsequent solo exhibition ‘Deception’ at Accelerator Gallery Ultimo.
