July 10. – 18. 2021 Exhibition, Künstlerforum Bonn

part 2 - sonic explorers (Dakar-Bonn)

Con-tainers is part of the series "rolling things", an expression of interest-less objects rolling around. The motorised gallon bottle-halves are moving through space, crashing into each other and thereby changing the direction. Their journey is without interest or purpose. Bored but restless both engage with the limitations of the physical space as it is.

This pieces was exhibited at "Künstlerforum Bonn" (DE).

The international exchange project “sonotopia – the sonic explorers” by bonn hoeren on behalf of the Beethoven Foundation for Art and Culture sent six young European sound artists on artistic expeditions to four cities on four continents on the occasion of the Beethoven anniversary year. After residencies with two young local sound artists in each of the respective cities – Tehran, Dakar and Valparaiso/Bonn – all of the twelve artists came together in Bonn.

The final exhibition shows works created in Bonn, documents the working process and the individual works by the young artists, and reflects about the outcomes of the collaborations and the specifics of their local contexts.Materials, field recordings, sketches, traces, sound cartographies, ideas, artifacts, devices and atmospheres: What and how did the young sound artists hear and what did they experience during their time together? What remains?
