“Hymn To Pan” was recorded live on July 9, 2010 during a reading/performance by Karl Holmqvist at Badischer Kunstverein. The record features a selection of four texts from his anthology “What’s My Name” (2009). Karl Holmqvist’s texts represent a writing method that is based on lengthy collages of quotes, song lyrics, lists, and other often pop-cultural or trivial sources. Through cut-ups or repetition, occassional rhyme and mantra-like rhythm, these minimal, geometric linguistic arrangements orbit a nucleus that is at the same time analytical and meditative, and that question the cultural hegemony of rationality and authority in any sort of authorship. 

Karl Holmqvist’s work has been exhibited internationally. He took part in Frieze Projects 2010 with Ei Arakawa and was also part of Manifesta 8 in Cartagena, Spain in 2010. In 2011 his work can be seen in the group exhibition “Illuminations”, part of the 54th Venice Biennale.
