LANGES STILLES VOLT
Epicentro Art
Joachimstrasse 5
10119 Berlin, Germany
7pm 


A new sound installation using amplified sounds of various common electrical appliances and a computer that listens and picks out tones in real-time from the acoustics in the space to playback as sine tones. Accompanying a number of visual works by Charlotte Warsen, Valerie Schmidt, and Valentin Emil Lubberger.

Eine Ausstellung von Charlotte Warsen, Valerie Schmidt und Valentin Emil Lubberger.

Vernissage am 12.12.2013 ab 19 Uhr mit einer Lesung von Linus Westheuser und einer Soundinstallation von Scott Cazan.

Langes stilles Volt markiert eine langsam getaktete Grundspannung, die sich durch die Arbeiten zieht oder sich in ihnen als Bildmotiv entlädt. In einer Zeit, in der die Bilder gereizt, die Matratzen nervös sind und keine Ruhe versprechen, wird die Hysterie der Dinge nüchtern und still in den fotografischen Blick genommen, leise wummernde Kreislinien breiten sich langsam im Raum aus und Malbewegungen finden sich als ikonische Spasmen auf der Leinwand wieder.
