Marianne Jõgi‘Interaural Contour I’, 2018

Outset Estonia supports the presentation of Marianne Jõgi’s outdoor installation Interaural Contour I at Battersea Park during the London Art Night festival.

Outset Estonia supported Interaural Contour I when it was first opened to the public at the Estonian Open Air Museum in 217. In London, the installation for Art Night is created in collaboration with curator Hanna Laura Kaljo. The immersive sculpture is accompanied by composer Ülo Krigul’s sound piece Water Itself that was commissioned for the occasion. Interaural Contour I is an architectural installation, an acoustically active environment, whose mathematical structure promotes relaxation, wellbeing, and supports learning. Substantiated by neuroscientific research and drawing from artist Marianne Jõgi’s background in music theory, sculpture, and engineering, the event offers a particular sensorial experience. Pointing to the connectivity between our inner vibrations and those in outer space, the project invites us to consider the reciprocity between the psychological and physical, the personal and environmental, as ultimately sustaining our healthful, earthly dwelling. Marianne Jõgi’s project is presented by the artist, composer Ülo Krigul, curator Hanna Laura Kaljo and the Estonian Contemporary Art Development Center. Art Night is London’s largest free contemporary arts festival. Each year the festival partners with a leading cultural institution and curator, focusing on a different area of London to explore its distinctive identity, culture and architecture through various forms of art. 2018 edition transformed the Thames riverbank between the South Bank and Battersea Power Station with Ralph Rugoff and the Hayward Gallery team have curating the projects by 12 internationally renowned artists in the main program.
