Bye bye Trailerpark Festival!

For 10. gang er Trailerpark Festival til ende og vender ikke tilbage næste år. Carla Camilla Hjort stiftede festivalen for 10 år siden, og om beslutningen om at stoppe ved 10-års jubilæet fortæller hun: 

Vi tror på, at man altid skal udfordre sig selv og prøve noget nyt og vi vil gerne slutte på toppen, mens kærligheden og passionen er intakt.

Rygtet siger, at Carla Camilla og hendes team brygger på et nyt festivalskoncept. Indtil da vil vi nyde nogle af de kunstnere, der spillede på dette års festival og sende varme tanker til Trailerpark.

Trailerpark Festival 2016 has ended and will not return next year. Carla Camilla Hjort was the woman who decided to set up the festival 10 years ago:

We believe that you always have to challenge yourself and try out new adventures. We wanted to stop at the height of the festival while love and passion were still there. 

She said about the decision. Rumour has it that Carla Camilla and her team are brainstorming on a new festival concept. Until then we are to enjoy some of the artist who played at this year’s Trailerpark Festival.    

M.I.L.K.



About M.I.L.K. Trailerpark Festval writes: M.I.L.K emerged in the international blogosphere with his sun-infused vibes. M.I.L.K. sounds like Scandinavian skinny dipping and has been compared to acts like Jungle and Rhye. 


SLOWES



About SLOWES Trailerpark Festival writes: Slowes is a brand new band and the brainchild of psychedelic-pop duo Jack Kilburn and Anders Hamann. They have just released their first single which were instantly picked up ny international radio. 


Vinnie Who

About Vinnie Who Trailerpark Festival writes: Introducing Vinnie Who would be unnecessary as he has been talk of the town since entering the music scene with his disco vibes in 2010. He has played at Trailerpark Festival no less than five times and this year he is back with his well-known catchy disco energy.

 – Vores interview med Dries Depoorter bringes på engelsk, da korrespondancen med den belgiske kunstner har foregået på dette sprog.  


Belgian artist Dries Depoorter has a mission: Through his arts he wants us to question the constant surveillance we are subjected to – and it might make us feel uncomfortable.
The work Jaywalking can be experienced at this year’s Trailerpark Festival starting today. Here Depoorter invites his audience to a live streaming experience of pedestrians crossing a road at a traffic light. Webcams will blabber whether the pedestrian has crossed the road when he is allowed to or not. Depoorter’s audience can thus press a button if he is caught crossing at red light, which will send an e-mail and a screenshot of the “Jaywalker” directly to the nearest police station.
Would you dare to press the button if finding yourself in front of the work at Trailerpark Festival? We are not sure ourselves but we are certainly curious to get to know more about the artist behind Jaywalking Read the Q&As here!
– In your own words what is Jay Walking about?
Jaywalking is about the future of police automatisation. Is a good that we’re gonna have a fine by just the most simple things like walking through a red light? 
This piece is also about surveillance and the tools I can build to make this possible. Most of the time I’m using open source tools. 
For the moment I’m working on a new project called JayWalking Frames. It’s exist out of photo frames of people walking through red lights all over the world captured with my software and using surveillance camera’s. I curate the jaywalking photo’s and put them in Photoframes. If you want to buy them you have to pay the same price as the fine in that country. 
So the money doesn’t go to the police but to me as an artist. Most of the time you pay 50 dollar or each Jaywalking photo frame.  
– Jay Walking is questioning the power of the authorities – is your art a riot against authorities or more the digital age we live in? 
It’s not a riot. It just brings up questions of the time we live in. 

– What are your thoughts about the technologies you use for your work? Taken into consideration that they constantly evolve. 
Technology is my main inspiration. Most of the time it’s a spark for a new project. But I try to be original with these new technologies.  
I don’t feel making a painting because the tool already exists. 


– It seems like your project is to make the things we surround ourselves with – but do not see or think about visible. Is that correctly understood? 
Yes. In a lot of projects I just combine data or technology with sometimes an interesting result. 
– When using all these data as for instance in your work “Tinder In” (one of Drie’s older works that matches a person’s Tinder photos and frames them with the same individual’s LinkedIn profile photo), don’t you think that turns you into some kind of a Big Brother of someone who plays “God” with all us ignorant others? 
It was a choice to make TinderIn a manual process. First I was think to make a script where I combine hundreds combinations of Tinder & LinkedIn pictures. But I think it’s stronger to 
do it manually so I show everyone can do this. That was a choice. 
– Everything about surveillance and online privacy seems invisible to the “normal eye”. Is it with works like yours that we really start to think about it? And are you doing us a favour?
No, I don’t do you a favour. I hope it start raising question. 
– Is your work ethical? Do you feel the need to fight for the knowledge of how much surveillance we actually are being exposed to?
I show what is possible with surveillance and the tools I have. I don’t want to be that artist with the heavy and boring message. 
– If you had lived 100 years ago, what kind of artist would you have been?
Most of my inspiration comes from technology. So I probably did some projects with a phonograph, typewriter or a radio receiver. 

I always wanted to become an inventor when I was young. Sometimes I feel like this.

Today Trailerpark Festival reveals the full art program of this year’s festival. Eight new art groups have been added to the line up. We give you an update!  




Verdens mindste klub
Campingvogne danner ramme for Trailerparks opbygning, og i år fødes verdens mindste klub i en af dem. Det er danske Marie Boyesen og Julie Cetti som vil forvandle en campingvogn til en gigantisk komet. Indvendigt beklædt med spejle og laserlys, som publikum i små hold kan træde ind i og sætte nye rammer for definitionen af en fest, når verdens mindste natklub folder sig ud.

The world’s smallest night club

Marie Boye & Julie Cetti (DK) will transform one of the many iconic trailers into one giant rock to house the world’s smallest nightclub. So get ready to step into one giant big rock on wheels!
The world’s smallest night club is still in the making. Here is how it might look like!


Legende lysinstallationer
I år har Trailerpark Festival inviteret tre kunstnere, dedikeret til lys: “Lyset er det ultimative middel til at skabe stemninger, men ofte er lyset brugt som dekoration eller et hjælpemiddel og det er ærgerligt, for det kan så meget mere end bare oplyse en scene. Vi vil gerne udfordre den gængse opfattelse af, hvad lyset kan, også i en kunstnerisk forstand.” fortæller Mikkel Christopher, festivallens kunstansvarlige. 

Mikkel Dahlin & Rhoda Ting og Line Finderup Jensen vil begge udforme forskellige installationer med udgangspunkt i lysdesign og video. Gæster vil blandt andet opleve sensoriske rum med meditative virkemidler som lysterapi og rindende vand.

Derudover teamer lyskunstnerne Obscura op med Hvass & Hannibal om at lave scenografien til Royal Stage, som er festivalens hovedscene. Obscura er dedikeret inden for lys- og videoinstallation, og er tilbage på Trailerpark Festival for at bruge lys som en aktiv del i deres kunst.

Playful light-installations 

The Danish-Australian duo Mikkel Dahlin & Rhoda Ting will be presenting multiple installations and sensory rooms in different sizes. Some of the rooms are human sized and for the audience to step into, and experience calmness and a private space through meditate way of working. By including the participants, Rhoda Ting & Mikkel Bojesen are setting out to examine how the creation of places and situations can transform ones way of being, and ones way of time and space.

Danish Line Finderup Jensen will present an installation at Trailerpark which include a video installation where art will come to life through interactive design. By investigating various methods of somehow challenging our cognition, Line Finderup Jensen, is constantly on the lookout for new contexts and formats to put herself and her art into.

Fashionabel petanque bane 

Måske bliver den nye modesport petanque! Til festivalen har det britiske designkollektiv CMDNDP, bestående af arkitekterne Chris Paxton og Jack Minchella nemlig designet en arkitekttegnet pentanquebane. Banen er en slags arena hvor gæster kan spille petanque, og opholde sig omkring mens musik syder ud fra Soundvenue scenens højtalere i baggrunden.

///

The two architects, behind CMPNDP Chris Paxton & Jack Minchella, have worked together since 2010 and for Trailerpark Festival they will design an arena centered around a fashionable petanque court, where guests can chill, watch people or play petanque with the Soundvenue Stage as a backdrop. Maybe the new stylish way of doing sports will be pentanque!

Work by CMPNDP


Alice i Eventyrland feeling
Den hollandske kunstnergruppe Softcore har bidraget til Trailerpark Festival før, og dette år vil gruppen designe en massiv trappe i centrum af festivalpladsen. Overskydende trædele som kunstnergruppen finder på festivalområdet, genbruges til at bygge en skov med lysskulpturer, som skal føre gæsternes tanker i retning af Alice i Eventyrland.

A feeling of Alice in Wonderland
With the ambition of recapturing the atmosphere of Alice In Wonderland Softcore (NL) is back at Trailerpark Festival. The group will build a forest out of leftover wooden pieces found at the festival area and create a sculpture of light.
