Exhibition as Sound. Sense of Sound
In the case of sound art, the medium itself forces the viewer to change his normal mode of perception. Finding the right form for the presentation is a crucial element, especially in the world of visual arts that is mostly focused on the visual.
Sound and movement are inextricably linked together. Movements and vibrations turn into audible sounds and back again. In ‘Sense of Sound’, sound manifests itself in many shapes and forms: vibrations, magnetic fields, electrical discharges or waves of feedback. But the various works have one thing in common: sounds can always be traced back to friction that makes the world move. From the resonance on your skull to your middle ear or from fluctuating voltage to a vibrating magnet. Sound is created when energy escapes and through air or materials transforms itself into a sensory sensation.
Sense of Sound is a cooperation between Z33 and Overtoon, a production facility in Brussels and a stage for sound and media art. All the works of art in the exhibition are new productions created by current or future Overtoon residents. For Overtoon as well as for Z33, Sense of Sound is not just an exhibition, but also a new challenge in an ongoing research on modes of presentation for different forms of art and media.
