Recipient’s Positions (2012 – 2015) Volkmar Klien

Assisted excercises in an installative setting.

Sounds are transmitted through structure- borne audio transducers mounted to the head, making the skull vibrate. The recipient is fixed into sound devices, while the artist delivers intimate music from the computer and electric piano. Does this make you nervous or receptive? Reception Positions is a threepart experiment about the materiality of sound, exploring the relationship of empathy and power between artist and recipient. Volkmar Klien describes them as “assisted exercises”. The medium is the message and the massage. Details
