Used materials re-act again.

On Thursday the ARTos Foundation in Nicosia will give up its stage to artist, musician, composer and thinker Ida-Marie Corell. Corell will present a visual and music performance of the work developed during a week-long artist residency under the name Synesthetic Re-action.

The performance, taking place within the framework of the eight X-dream festival is based on a process of collection and documentation of found local materials and footage, and the production of a music composition while wearing a costume made out of found, local, plastic foils and other materials.

In times of global mass production, consumption, and technical reproduction, the artist's work provides access to offline, analogue, synesthetic and, therefore, rare and live experiences.

Corell works in the fields of music, art and knowledge transfer. In her pieces, she works with themes like mass consumerism, identity, emotion, plastic, plastic bags and aesthesis. Her dissertation for her PhD, entitled The Phenomenology of the Plastic Bags, won the publishing grant edition angewandte of the University of the Applied Arts Vienna and was published in 2011. Her second book The Artist is Resident, won the publishing grant Florian und Ursula Werner and the Kunsthalle Arlberg 1800 Art Award in 2013. She has exhibited her work and/ or performed in Italy, Greece, Switzerland, Amsterdam, Germany, Britain and elsewhere.
