Artist's Talk: Herman Kolgen's Inject

Artists Talk: Herman Kolgen's Inject
Wednesday 25th, July 18:30

For one-day only, artist and audiocinetic sculptor Herman Kolgen's award-winning installation Inject will open free to the public Hengrove Park Leisure Centre. Projected on a giant screen at Hengrove's Olympic size pool, Inject depicts a human body immersed in a large cistern of water. Over 45 minutes the water pressure builds and the oxygen depletes, affecting the figure's nervous system. A remarkable sequence of live mixed sound and video illustrates a loss of touch with reality and invites a floating audience to consider the relationship between human biology and emotion.

There will be a talk with the artist on Wednesday 25 July at 18:30 and he will share insights about his work and career. Then on Friday 27, don your swim-suit and experience this stunning work at the pool: float in the water while the projection is played on a giant screen or simply watch from the spectator seats.

Performances at Hengrove are free and take place at 21:00 and 22:00. Click here to book your free tickets to the performance.

Commissioned by Bristol City Council, part of Hengrove Park Public Art Programme. Supported by Picture This and InBetween Time. Work contains nudity.

Talk Fee: £4.00 full/£3.00 concs.
