Iris Garrelfs is a site-responsive sound artist active across improvised performance, installation and fixed media. She is currently preparing a new audio-visual performance piece called Otzi for the MuseRuole Festival, to take place at the Museion Museum for Modern and Contemporary Art in Bolzano/Italy, on 27th May 2016, curated by Valeria Merlini, aka JD Zazie. The piece loosely inspired by the story of the Ötzi the ieceman, an extremely well-preserved natural mummy who was found buried in ice in the nearby Ötztal Alps (hence the name). His body and belongings are now on display in the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology, just down the road from the festival venue.
MuseRuole is a festival dedicated to experimental music and puts contemporary female musicians and performers at its center. It is a journey of discovery into the wide world of current musical research, looking for specifically female modes of expression, with its own grammar and personal style.
