Previously at the ICA - Events
27 Apr 2017
The ICA is pleased to present ECHO, a performance by Norwegian musician Nils Bech and long-term collaborator artist Ida Ekblad. The event will involve Bech performing songs from his latest album, ECHO (DFA/Fysisk Format, 2016), while interacting with new sculptural works by Ekblad. The artworks have been created to intentionally embody human qualities and act as a placeholder for the storyteller, the lover or the object. They act as a conversation partner—or as a stand-in for the person for whom the song was written—while the mirroring opens up a parallel dialogue, representing the often conflicted ways of communication that lie at the core of the album.
