Lilian Beidler (CH) for iii

In April 2015 Lilian Beidler is the artist in residence within the residency program organized by the artist-run platform iii in cooperation with Satellietgroup and Studio Loos.

Lilian Beidler was born on 1 March 1982 in Bern, Switzerland. She completed her Master of Arts in Contemporary Arts Practice (CAP) at Bern University of the Arts in 2010. She was invited as an artist in residence to the USA, Finland and China. She regularly shows her work and performs at different venues and festivals in the USA, Asia and Europe. She is currently studying at Goldsmiths University of London. She speaks seven languages and is eager to learn more.

"Sound being a fundamental component of my work, I often combine performance, installation, conceptual work and musical composition. During the residency I will develop a piece that deals with questions I am currently addressing in my work: What is the significance of gestures in the performance of electronic music? How do new media change the perception and appearance of the human body? How do humans interact with machines? How do new forms of communication influence the way people look at themselves and at others?"

About Quiet Ensemble:
The research of Quiet ensemble goes through the observation of the balance between chaos and control, nature and technology, creating subjects that perfectly merges the those elements, elements that take form from the relation of organic and artificial subjects, moving the attention to insignificant and wonderful elements, like the movement of a fly or the sound of trees. The interest is connected to those technologies that explores the aesthetic and conceptual possibilities deriving from interactivity techniques, apProaching the newest technological discoveries as if they would be the tools for creation, like the brush for the painter. Working on the relation between time and space, sound and image the work of Quiet ensemble changes and develops in time, relating to the space, changing it. Emphasizing the unespected events, refuting the apparent immobility of shapes and melting the appearing opposition of forces in nature. Concrete and abstract shapes are sectioned and remodeled in hybrid forms and balances, parallel giving great importance to the pure aesthetics of forms. Quiet ensemble is born in 2009 from the meeting between Fabio Di Salvo and Bernardo Vercelli.
