In June 2018, composer Yvonne Freckmann and I travelled to Austria to work at AIR Krems. It was an intense month and we created new work, including Sentinels, for cello and field recordings/electronics, and an audio/visual exhibition.
With my new colleagues Adriana Affortunati, Jana Dabac, Yvonne Freckmann and Andrew Neumann, we organized an exhibition and cello performance in a beautiful old garage/former wine cellar in Krems. It is a celebration of our poetic impressions of Krems during the month of June.
Ohrenbetäubendes Geflüster (Deafening Whispers)
The artworks presented are a result of the poetic impressions assembled collaboratively between the artists during their first month of residency in Krems, Austria. Installing the exhibition in an old wine cellar stimulates the proximity between the artworks and the public since it is both a familiar and an authentic setting. The place is an art piece itself and thus multiplies the possibilities of interaction with the artworks, provoking the visitor to create different meanings while experiencing each installation.
