Herman Kolgen - Inject
11th July 2012

Live Event: Friday 27 July, 9pm and 10pm
Hengrove Park Leisure Centre
FREE (booking required)

For one day only, Montreal based artist Herman Kolgen's award-winning installation Inject will open free to the public at Hengrove Park Leisure Centre.

Projected on a giant screen at Hengrove's Olympic size pool, Inject depicts a human body immersed in a large cistern of water. Over 45 minutes the water pressure builds and the oxygen depletes, affecting the figure's nervous system. A remarkable sequence of live mixed sound and video illustrates a loss of touch with reality and invites a floating audience to consider the relationship between human biology and emotion.

Join in and float in the water as the video is projected on the giant screen at the pool or simply watch from the spectator seats to experience this stunning show.

Live event: Performances at Hengrove are free and take place at 9pm and 10pm on Friday 27 July.
(Booking required). The pool has full disabled access.

Artists Talk: Join us for a public talk with Herman Kolgen to hear the artist discuss Inject and other works, Wednesday 25 July, 6.30pm, at Watershed, £4 / £3

Inject is a modular performance in High Definition video and multichannel audio, this work is staged at Hengrove's Olympic sized pool as part of Hengrove Park Public Art Programme.

A Bristol City Council commission, delivered in collaboration with Watershed, In Between Time and Picture This, as part of the Hengrove Park Public Art Programme.
