Reykjavik 24 - 28 November, 2016
You are stuck in Lazaretto. The outcome is known to none. You might be quarantined, ostrasized, sick, vulnerable or lonely. Or you might think you have it all. We are all travelers, somehow out of place, out of sync, on the edge of society. But who defines the centers of power, who defines the norms Lazaretto is shadowy world, a world in between.
The Inner Ear (Innra eyrað) is an Icelandic group, located in Reykjavík, working with sounds and audio in various ways. The group consists of three members and founders, Elísabet Indra Ragnarsdóttir, Guðni Tómasson and Þorgerður E. Sigurðardóttir and works and plays somewhere on the border of fact and fiction, creating site-specific works and inviting it’s audience/participants to experience spaces in a new way through sound. The working methods involve collecting stories, experiences and sound that are subsequently used to exhume the meaning of a place, both in a collective and a personal sense. With the help of sound one can walk in other people’s shoes, travel through time and see the most mundane places in a new light.
