Konrad Korabiewski and Anna Friz are running the Icelandic-based independent artist-run organization Skálar – Sound Art and Experimental Music, which acts as both an artist collective and a mobile curatorial platform, and produces a nomadic festival, international exchanges, and limited edition releases of audio and audio-visual works. Skálar works with related international institutions to form a network of artist interchange and presentation possibilities in Iceland and abroad, with the objective of undertaking sound-based artistic experiments, collaborations, presentations, and studies with artists working across disciplines. Skálar is particularly interested to generate and support artistic practices which highlight unstable systems, open spaces to new interpretations and use, and which engage in perceptual feedback and affect between site and subject. more under: skalar.is/info/Skalar.pdf
