Thursday, October 12 at 8 pm Sound performance. "Æter / Dj Bjørn Svin" are presenting a new collaboration.
For the duration of the exhibition
Freeways and Garage, the gallery space will be converted
into an archive, containing sounds and tones created by various
artists and musicians. The exhibition emphasizes the relationships
between the visual artist and the musician, and provides a point
of contact, a meeting place for the artist, whose installations
concentrate on sound, and the experimentally active musician
and/or DJ. The observer, the visitor, the listener, or the recipient
(this is, perhaps, the most appropriate term) does not always
recognize the division between one trade and the other. The artists
and artworks presented in Freeways and Garage explore
this blurred distinction.
Wolfgang Betke's audio-play pieces and Peter Dackes' sound contributions exemplify experimentation with the blurred boundaries between artist and musician. Betke often appears with the group "Ocean Club" at WMF-Club in Berlin Mitte. Musician Robert Henke, through his music label "monolake," challenges the acoustic undertones in the works of artists like Michael Lapkus. The artist-group Sonde is highly respected in the DJ-world. Also presented are Bjorn Svin, in collaboration with the group Aeter and narrative work by Karin Mosegard.
