About Allard van Hoorn

Allard van Hoorn investigates relationships to our environment incorporating the disciplines of architecture, design, music and dance. He visually, acoustically and spatially transcodes our usage and perception of cities and nature in order to question preconceptions and experiences of the spaces we live and work in. Through mapping and the subsequent re-ordering of embedded rituals, rules and routines in buildings and public spaces, he allows for reinterpretation of form and function taking into account the inherent impossibility of complete description of our world by manmade systems.

"My main body of work consists of Urban Songlines, a utopian/dystopian series of collaborative translations of buildings, urban structures and public spaces into music through site-specific sound-generation. These performances are a way of connecting to places by listening to them as well as a research into how we use and experience the public domain and to what degree we can claim ownership over it, discussing notions of inclusion, becoming and belonging." Allard van Hoorn

Other projects and this series, now containing sixty-three site-specific works have been commissioned for institutions and tri-/biennials like the 11th Kaunas Biennial, 7th Bucharest Biennale, 1st Yinchuan Biennale, 6th Marrakech Biennale, 3rd Istanbul Design Biennial, 2nd Tbilisi Triennial, 12th Biennal de la Havana (framework), 2013 Shenzhen / Hong Kong Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism and Architecture, 2011 Gwangju Design Biennial, Museum for Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT) – Lisbon, Whitney Museum of American Art – New York, Tate St. Ives, Fundazione Pistoletto – Biella, Art Rotterdam 2014 as Focused Artist, Stedelijk Museum – Amsterdam & Pinakothek der Moderne – Munich.

"During my year at the ISCP I will continue to develop the series of Urban Songlines a.o. with iterations that transform three works of Gordon Matta-Clark: Day’s End as a wearable site-specific perfume for the now disfunct Pier 52, Conical Cut: re-creating Conical Intersect of 1975 into a choreography for chain-saw-manned ice-sculptor and dancer & Playing Fake Estates: translating slivers of re-zoned public spaces bought at auction by Matta-Clark in the 70’s in Queens as scores discussing issues of appropriation, gentrification and inner-city migration patterns. The works in progress can be seen at studio 217 at ISCP twice this year during open studios in March and October." Allard van Hoorn
