From Boiler Room 4:3
Kilchhofer Anklin: 'Zinnen'
Directed by Frode & Marcus
Frode and Marcus bask in the organic sounds of Kilchhofer + Anklin with this Super 8 filmed music video shot in Bali & Gran Canaria. "After hearing the song, we got this all of a sudden feeling for Bali, probably because of Balinese gongs, which we both love," Frode & Marcus tell 4:3.
"We have both shot things in Gran Canaria before and love it," they continue. "It offers a lot of variety has a great blend of extraordinary beauty, industrial areas, tacky tourist areas and dusty wastelands full of rubbish and gravel."
'Zinnen' is taken from "Moto Perpetuo", the forthcoming Kilchhofer Anklin LP due on Marionette. Its not the first time Marionette figurehead Kilchhofer has worked with Swiss percussionist Michael Anklin, but "Moto Perpetuo" is their most comprehensive joint statement thus far.
Drawing on the titular concept of perpetual motion, the pair find a calming middle ground between their respective modular synth and percussion across six delicate compositions.
Marionette will release "Moto Perpetuo" by Kilchhofer Anklin on March 15.
The Institute of Social Hypocrisy
16th May 2009 to 16th May 2011
by Victor Boullet
The Institute of Social Hypocrisy is the Paris based artificial organisation that fronts an ongoing collaborative work by the artist Victor Boullet. The Institute of Social Hypocrisy is conducted in the form of a protracted performance piece and its very existence is brought about by inviting participation with others. Each player and event contributes vital information and connections that allow the Institute to progress.
The ISH provides a perception of authority and thus acts as a Trojan horse; it permits the contributors to covertly infiltrate organisations and to gain access people that they might not normally be able to approach.
The accepted paraphernalia that symbolize an official structure also represent The Institute. Door plaques, headed paper, business cards and a flag combine to present an authoritative façade that conceals the true internal activity.
The fundamental theme recurring in Victor Boullet’s work is that of alienation and acceptance. He highlights the aspects of intrinsically hypocritical social behaviour used to ingratiate oneself with others. This sense of exclusion, and the subsequent desire to put up an illusion of conformity, functions as the point of departure for the activities taking place within the The Institute of Social Hypocrisy
The Institute combines these two connected aspects, of simulated bureaucracy and hypocrisy to form a conceptual umbrella under which a programme of related events can take place. It provides a structure for artists to take control of the programming and direction of their work and to be responsible for the events, installations and publications that occur.
