Electra is a London based cross-artform agency founded in May 2003 by Lina Dzuverovic - Russell and Anne Hilde Neset. Electra specialises in providing new platforms for artists working across media arts, sound and the visual arts. Our mission is to foster new collaborations and increase communication between these spheres of artistic production and to provide a higher level of visibility for artists working in these areas. Electra also aims to provide a lasting resource in the area of sound art and media arts through documentation of projects both online and offline and the creation of an accessible study archive.
Electra's recent projects include Sounds Of Christmas by Christian Marclay - an installation and a series of performances at Tate Modern; Once Seen - a touring programme of British video and sound work shown in various venues in Norway; Electric Weekend - talks, interventions and screenings at Electric Avenue Studios and The Ritzy Cinema; Shipwreck Radio - A sound art radio commission (Steven Stapleton & Colin Potter of Nurse With Wound) above the arctic circle broadcast regularly on local radio in Lofoten, Norway; and Sound and the 20th Century Avant Garde - an eight week lecture series held at Tate Modern.
