Ksenija Čerče: Sonic

Kibla and Sinagoga Maribor, the exhibition opening on Thursday  21/02/2008 at 7 pm.

Ksenija Čerče: Sonic
acoustic video ambient

Sonic is an artistic articulation of the relationships between the natural and the digital performed by acoustic and visu/ional reality. The acoustic video ambient, established in an extremely acoustic environment and defined by the specific shape of the space, is based on the research into phenomena of transparency and transitivity. Our perception focuses on the movement between sets of acoustic and visual happenings and their forms. The stress is on the difference between the present and the absent - the concealed stimulator of attention. It is the opposite of silence, if silence is perceived as the sensation upon the momentary recognition of the lack of sound and the ensuing listening to silence, searching for other sounds to be assured about hearing.

Curator: Petra Kapš
