Een GeOnmogelijkt verhaal (in Dutch) bestaat uit 13 absurdistische dialogen, die even goed allemaal los op zichzelf kunnen staan. In elk deel spelen andere spelers, maar sommige personages komen vaker terug. Hoewel niemand een eigen naam heeft, vertegenwoordigt iedere rol wel degelijk een karakter, die voortvloeit uit de aard van zijn of haar omschrijving. Geen van de stukken heeft een introductie nodig, ze beginnen direct, en zijn doorspekt met gedichten, wat zorgt voor een consistent ritme met onverwachte wendingen. De dialogen zijn niet zozeer verhalend alswel onderzoekend. Er wordt tot in het hilarische op een absurd filosofische manier op elkaar gereageerd. Aanvankelijk lijkt de gespreksstof simpel, maar er komen voortdurend onverwachte standpunten, spitsvondigheden, en ingevingen voorbij, waar niet altijd de meest voordehandliggende conclusies aan worden verbonden. © Margriet Kicks-Ass 2022

An (Im)Possibled Story consists of absurdist dialogues in 13 episodes, each of which may as well stand alone. Each part has different actors, but some characters reappear more often. Although no one has a name of his own, each role does represent a character, arising from the nature of his or her description. None of the plays needs an introduction, they start straight away, and are peppered with poems, which creates a consistent rhythm with unexpected twists. The dialogues are not so much narrative as investigative. The players react to each other in an absurdly philosophical way, to the point of hilarity. Initially, the discussion material appears simple, but unexpected viewpoints, quirks and hunches are constantly passing by, not always leading to the most obvious conclusions. © Margriet Kicks-Ass 2022.

Experimental Sound-art, performances and soundsculptures

Margriet Kicks-Ass (NL) works as an interdisciplinary artist. Her artistic process can be described as investigative.
In a Dadaistic manner she combines art with technology. Already as a child she asked herself: ‘Why are the dishes
not arranged alphabetically?’ Margriet refuses to be intimidated by calls for efficiency and functionality. She is
exchanging the context and meaning of everyday objects and combining opposites with an analytical attitude which
also reflects her fascination for natural phenomena. This is the starting point for the development of playful kinetic
sound sculptures, which she later exhibits as interactive works of art or in theatrical live performances. The physical
power of sound is her inspiration source. Earlier work concerned research in magnetic fields, pneumatic sounds and
the ´quake-factor´ or vibration and resonance behavior of daily objects, to shape an audible landscape of sound layers.
Now she has changed her direction more towards our divine nature.

ARTISTIC VIEW:
By showing the pure sound source (without effects), visitors can literally see how the sounds are made.
I'm playing with daily objects, juggling with the possible meaning like a dadaist. Mixing things which are normally
not destined to be placed together, highlighting how easy it is to break free of daily life conventions and showing
how automatisms are fixed in our behavior without us being aware of any other options.

It is possible to make a composition with a self-made object instead of traditional instruments. In that sense
I'm trying to open up some prejudices about so called ´music´. Not opening the discussion if it is music or not,
I am able to play noises in such a way visitors enjoy the performance, imagining other planets or even dance,
or discover and play themselves. A live sound-research with visual ingredients put together in a sculpture.
Presenting crossovers of different media: combining monumental 3d-sculpture with sound-art (installation),
sometimes with moving parts (kinetic art), or live performance (theater), all inspired by nature herself.
