Tomorrow, February 25 at 19:00 - the opening of the online installation Happy To Be Here - a multimedia audiovisual project created by Nizhny Novgorod musician Mikhail Pinyaev @aegersmoothie and Scottish video artist Heather Lander @heatherroselander. This is Arsenal's first experience in creating a multimedia work in this form.
The broadcast will take place on the Arsenal website. Before the show, there will be an artist-talk with Mikhail Pinyaev and Heather Lander, the meeting moderator and curator of the project - musicologist Ksenia Anufrieva @xeniana_music.
The Happy To Be Here website: https://www.happytobehere.art/Mikhail Pinyaev and I met at Cove Park while we were both there on arts residency via Cryptic. This was in March 2020 just as Lockdown was beginning to become a reality. It was a pleasure to make the visual content for this website later that year.
