Rhythmic Music Conservatory | Copenhagen , SK

Spaces (in) Between is a collaborative project between Rhythmic Music Conservatory (RMC), The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Thorvaldsen Museum where students from the conservatory and the art academy collaborate on creating new works that enter into dialogue with the context and location of Thorvaldsen Museum – premiering at the museum in January 2021.
This seminar of talks/performances features both visiting guest teachers (Salomé Voegelin and Vincent Meessen) and faculty from the two schools (Carla Zaccagnini and Søren Kjærgaard) who all will share their artistic work which in various ways relates to the manifold title meanings of Spaces (in) Between.

Salomé Voegelin
is an artist, writer and researcher engaged in listening as a socio-political practice. Her work and writing deal with sound, the world sound makes: its aesthetic, social and political realities that are hidden by the persuasiveness of a visual point of view. She writes essays and text-scores for performance and publication. Books include Sonic Possible Worlds (2014/21) The Political Possibility of Sound (2018) and Listening to Noise and Silence (2010). Voegelin’s practice engages in participatory, collective and communal approaches, and uncurates curatorial conventions through performance. She is a Professor of Sound at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London and currently represents the Professorship Sound Studies at the University of Art Braunschweig. She is the PI (Principle Investigator) on the UK Research Council funded project Listening across Disciplines

Vincent Meessen (Baltimore, USA, 1971)
Lives and works in Brussels. His artistic work is woven from a constellation of actors, gestures, and signs that maintain a polemical and sensible relation to the writing of history and the westernization of imaginaries. He decenters and multiplies gazes and perspectives to explore the variety of ways in which colonial modernity has impacted the fabric of contemporary subjectivities. Both in his work as an artist and in his paracuratorial activities, he likes to use procedures of collaboration that undermine the authority of the author and emphasize the intelligence of collectives. With ten guest artists, Meessen represented Belgium at the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015.
Vincent Meessen is a founding member of Jubilee-platform for artistic research and production. Other links

Carla Zaccagnini (Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1973.
Lives between São Paulo, Brazil and Malmö, Sweden) is a visual artist, professor of Conceptual and Contextual Practices at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and guest curator of the 34th Bienal de São Paulo.

Søren Kjærgaard (born March 5th 1978)
is a Copenhagen-based pianist, composer, improviser, educator and artistic researcher who encompasses a variety of settings ranging from solo performance to ensemble formats. His work has led to various international exchanges, performances, lectures, commissions and a growing discography of critically acclaimed albums.
Currently Søren Kjærgaard is also working as an educator and artistic researcher as part of his associate professorship at the Rhythmic Music Conservatory, investigating the trans/interference of sonic identity, practices of critical and imaginal listening, methods of sampling and instrument coding and ways of disseminating research knowledge in experiental, performative formats.
