Recipient’s Positions (2012 – 2015) Volkmar Klien

Assisted excercises in an installative setting.

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

Primitive Komplexität Zimoun

Zimoun’s organic installations and sound sculptures emerge in an interplay between mechanics, movement, and physically created sounds. They are delicate works with a poetic playfulness, simultaneously simple and complex, results of repetition and fine anomalies, routine and coincidence. Details

Alga Soundinstallation in Klangraum Krems-Kapitelsaal

URSULA SCHERRER – spatial design
SHELLEY HIRSCH – sound concept

Chaos – genesis – tohu wa bohu: with voices, sea algae and light, the two New York artists Ursula Scherrer (space design) and Shelley Hirsch (sound concept) will create a space similar to the first signs of order after the “tohu wa bohu”—a space prior to the first sunrise. The term “tohu wa bohu” is a Hebrew phrase (Genesis 1:2) and means chaos and emptiness (Luther); it describes the original state of being before creation.
