Chairs, Speakers, sparse Light

Categories: ,

Chairs, Speakers, sparse Light is a based on the idea that sound can be an artistic material. In the context of exhibition spaces, sound thus should not be downgraded as a byproduct of an installation or be pushed into fringe events such as concerts. Therefore, the question at hand is not if, but rather how sound can be presented in an exhibition space.

To examine this question Lawrence English, Nika Son, Franziska Lingg, Koen Holtkamp, Hagar Masoud, Shayu + Sfairiko, and Félicia Atkinson have been commissioned to compose a sound piece. Those pieces then were presented during an evening at Lucerne’s sic! Raum für Kunst in May 2018, where the setting in the space was reduced to the max—to chairs, speakers, sparse light. Now, we proudly publish six of the seven original pieces on a website designed and programmed by Luca Napoli.

Chairs, Speakers, sparse Light was initiated by Martina Lussi and Remo Bitzi. The project was supported by FUKA-Fonds, Regionalkonferenz Kultur RKK, and Migros-Kulturprozent.

The files will be available for download on Bandcamp soon.
