Susan Philipsz @ BALTIC Gateshead
20 October 2017 - 4 March 2018
Susan Philipsz is staging the presentation of a new work, A Single Voice 2017, which is an adaptation of Karl-Birger Blomdahl’s opera Aniara 1959. The narrative follows a group of colonists who leave a doomed planet Earth behind to set up a new life on Mars. An accident occurs during their journey and the passengers of the craft are left to float eternally in space. In Philipsz’ installation, a large film projection combined with the sculptural arrangement of 12 speakers act as an intimate meditation on themes of distance, separation and isolation.
