Preternatural

Kinesthesia

As we round the corner to the final stage of Preternatural, Norwegian artist Anne Katrine Senstad returns, this time flooding St. Brigid’s with ambient light, colour, and resonance for her site-specific video and sound installation, Kinesthesia for Saint Brigid.

Colour Kinesthesia is part of a larger body of work by Senstad, which explores the multi-sensorial experience of the body enveloped in light and sound. At St. Brigid’s, a video project­ion flooding the rear of the space emits a striking arrangement of colour sequences: a startling blood red — a vibrant blue — a warm green — a stunning yellow, which transgresses through the space to envelop and seemingly disintegrate its architectural details.

The cinematic score that will accompany Kinesthesia for Saint Brigid was composed by eminent musician/composer/producer and DJ, JG Thirlwell.

Below is a short preview of Senstad’s Kinesthesia for Saint Brigid:
