In Spring 2020 Mansions of the Future is presenting a new immersive installation by London based artist, musician and producer Haich Ber Na, supported by Joseph Bernard, IVOR Alice & Jesse Crankson. The commission will be inspired by 70s experimental film, sci-fi futures and modernist interior design. The set-like installations will form the backdrop to the production of a new short film and supporting photography series. Following filming the installations will be open to the public to view.
Self-taught London based producer and musician Haich Ber Na is the director of his beautiful yet awkward universe. Adding his own broken vocals over oscillating experimental electronic cuts, Ber Na fuses the sounds of indie-pop, soul and grime. Touching on introspective and self-reflective topics, he made a strong entrance with his 6 track debut EP ‘Unbalanced’. Ber Na’s contribution to the Lincoln Live programme, is a continuation from his 2019 release Everywhere’s Home; a musical and visual project which explored autobiographical notions of alienation and isolation.
His effortless musical rebellion and stunning self directed visuals have gained Haich Ber Na acclaim on platforms such as i-D, NOWNESS, The Face, Boiler Room and more. He is establishing himself as an all encompassing artist set on pushing the boundaries whilst working towards his 2020 release.
This project is part of Mansions of the Future’s Lincoln Live programme March – August 2020 (Season extended in response to COVID-19). Departing from Lincoln’s rich entertainment and theatre history, Lincoln Live features new commissions which exist at the intersections of disciplinary boundaries. The season is a celebration of performative ventures that stand resolutely marginal to both the history of English theatre and the often exclusive, disciplinary rhetoric of contemporary performance art.
