Ingri Fiksdal: Diorama
  • Framed within the shimmering skyline of Chicago, Diorama is staged alongside artist Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate in Chicago’s iconic Millennium Park, where the performance unfolds in tandem with the city’s winter sunset. Diorama is influenced by Louis Daguerre’s notion of ‘diorama theater’ in which the audience watches larger-than-life landscape paintings transform through skillfully manipulated light, sound effects, and live performers. Reflecting on the passing of time and the evolution of a particular view of the urban landscape, MFA students from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago perform alongside Fiksdal’s dancers, while noise/metal artist Lasse Marhaug mixes live with vocals by Norwegian art-pop and gothic metal artist Jenny Hval. Diorama is presented in partnership with the Departments of Fashion Design, Exhibitions, and Performance, and the Fashion Resource Center of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
