The installation «ce qu’il reste des échos» talks about the memories of an object, in particular, those of acoustic pots inspired by the ones used in churches to amplify or modify the voices of preachers and choirs in the past. At the time they also served as a metaphorical bridge between the prayer, and the song of the angels of heaven.

For this sound installation, ceramic sculptures with different shapes and resonances were produced and equipped with speakers to create a spatial sound environment in the exhibition space. The soundscape is created using sounds recorded in Linz such as voices, echoes, and various field recordings to evoke memories of places visited.

Objects carry a memory, it is charged with the ideas and intentions of those who made and use them. By taking it out of its original ecclesiastic context, contemporary voices are amplified and evoke, explicitly or not, societal themes such as feminism, ecology, and antiracism. The installation is thus a structure to invite people to play with it in a performative way and use it to amplify their voices.
