WHEN SOUND ENDS

Due to the lockdown starting on the 22nd of November, the exhibition can only be visited until the 19th of November. All persons must wear an FFP2 face mask and the 2G rule applys (recovered or vaccinated).

This series of works explores themes of corporeality, in relation to sound production and audition, touch, and loss. The loudspeakers, microphones, enclosures, and membranes presented in this exhibition are in varying states of disrepair; most are no longer capable of producing sound and thus are poignant objects for meditation on impermanence, bodily frailty, and death. Each of these corpses bear visible marks of violence, traces of past collisions and other wounds which emphatetically encourage viewers to visualize this encounter and the consequential loss of capacity.

Davide Tidoni is an artist and researcher working with sound and listening. With a particular focus on direct experience, observation, and action, he creates live works of different formats that include performance, intervention, walk, and workshop. Bound to the performativity of the recording act, he realises videos and sound recordings which function as pieces and/or as documentation material.
