Multimedia installation SUMMER

SUMMER is a collaborative audio-visual work by composer and producer Sonae and video artist Jennifer Trees. The walk-through multimedia constellation will be shown for the first time with us at Stadtgarten Cologne.

Tickets can be purchased for 7pm, 8pm and 9pm here.

Climate change today poses an imminent threat to life on our planet. SUMMER stages a revealing confrontation with this provocative truth in a floor-to-ceiling A/V installation consisting of two screens placed opposite each other; the audience is positioned between them. The installation creates a space in which to feel honest, perhaps difficult emotions such as fear for the environment and grief for our changed planet. Or to indulge in denial, because the installation also offers the possibility to close one's eyes. The two screens show different perspectives. In this way, SUMMER places its audience at the center of the problem, forcing them to make a decision at that moment and highlighting their respective active roles in the current climate crisis.

SUMMER was produced with support from NICA Artist Developmentand the European Center for Jazz and Contemporary Music at Stadtgarten Cologne. Sonae's album of the same name will be released on 04.10.2021 by LAAPS.
