For her first solo exhibition in the UK, Annika Kahrs presents the billion year spree, a selection of new works using film, performance and installation commissioned in response to and positioned throughout Flat Time House.


For the billion year spree she has focused her research into John Latham’s holistic cosmology of time and the universe, and how this might be visualised through time-based music and the atemporality of scores.

The title of the show derives from a 1970’s science fiction encyclopedia by Brian Aldiss, a collection of past imaginings of possible futures. Kahrs brings together her research into Latham with other perspectives via the Max Planck Institute, Berlin, the realm of psychiatric neuroimaging, and the search for cosmic gravitational waves at LIGO. From these starting points her work focuses on systems or forms of communication, interpretation and translation. Using music and sound she shifts or assembles what we hear through a performative process, making timelines intertwine and auditory perceptions interact.

the billion year spree is accompanied by a series of performances, concerts and talks on music, sound and scores.
