sesin melodim, seslerin yankım benim (tu voz es mi sonido es tu ruido es mi eco)

 

MIND the GAP, Hamburgo

21.10 – 13.12.2020

 

Instalación sonora de Annika Kahrs en colaboración con el músico Derya Yildirim.

 

 

 

La base de la instalación de sonido de 7 canales son las entrevistas que Kahrs y Yıldırım realizaron con los miembros de la familia de Yıldırım, sus padres, hermanos y primos, en Hamburgo. En las respectivas conversaciones se intercambiaron historias personales, específicamente preguntado sobre recuerdos sonoros y personalidad acústica. Estos se tradujeron luego en una compleja instalación de sonido en el estudio de sonido. La música se entiende aquí como una puesta en escena portadora de la memoria y un vínculo intergeneracional: qué canciones juegan un papel importante dentro de la familia, se transmiten a las siguientes generaciones y se reinterpretan, qué sonidos recuerdan los padres de su infancia en Sivas (Turquía), o los hermanos en Hamburgo.

 

sesin melodim, seslerin yankım benim (tu voz es mi sonido es tu ruido es mi eco) invita a los visitantes a acercarse a estos pensamientos y a escuchar el retrato de la familia de una manera temporalmente lineal y espacialmente vertical: cada piso representa a un miembro de la familia.

CORONA SOUND SYSTEM.

 

BEING LAID UP WAS NO EXCUSE FOR NOT MAKING ART

 

An experimental exhibition format in two chapters

 

22.8 –11.10.2020

 

Kunstverein in Hamburg

 

 

The experimental exhibition Corona Sound System foregrounds the experience of listening while changing the visual experience of an exhibition. What is the purpose of the exhibition space and/or what can the exhibition space do in the context of sound? In an empty room with white walls, within the functioning exhibition architecture, there are seats scattered at the required distance. Here a group exhibition will be held from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. A radio play takes place next to a concert; minimalist tones are replaced by a baroque piece; the ambience  of short pauses between pieces offers a moment to breathe deeply before getting involved in a new cosmos—just like in real life. These sounds are scattered in the room, one runs after another rather than side by side. We have to move back and forth between a total of five spaces that host these sounds—go there, linger, and then onto another place in the room, where the constellation of these sounds evokes new images from the last. Sound art can be experienced visually because it evokes different images in the mind of each individual visitor.

 

The exhibition Corona Sound System has no theme—except for concentrating on the different types of sound and their implicit possibilities.

 

Annika Kahrs and Wolfgang Tillmans both work in Hamburg. With her sound work My Favorite Music, Annika Kahrs deals with sound reinforcement and the acoustic appropriation of public spaces at Hamburg Hauptbahnhof. In 2001, areas of the main station began to be filled with classical ambient music in order to drive away people who slept or spent time there. She asks: whose private playlist do we hear at the train station? In Hamburg Süd / Nee IYaow eow eow Wolfgang Tillmans  mixes the ambient noises of the Hauptbahnhof and the surroundings of the Kunstverein with the playfully extended singing of Billie Ray Martin and himself.

 

Annika Kahrs’s piece is played daily at 14:17:00 – 14:35:31.

Annika Kahrs’ new performance THIS IS A LOVE SONG negotiates the field of tension between the musical notion of romantic love and the actually lived communication in a partnership. Singing about love has been passed on since antiquity, with the idea of what love is repeatedly undergoing changes. Our present-day understanding of love as it is addressed in movies, pop songs or romantic novels has existed in its popular form only since the 19th century. Especially in pop music, love lyrics are the most widespread, often consisting in the simplified longing for and idealization of partner relationships, which Kahrs contrasts with the mundane and complex issues that a relationship involves.

 

For THIS IS A LOVE SONG, Kahrs stages a song recital, with the presentation of the songs shifting more and more to a discussion on the existing conditions between the performers.

Viu i treballa a Hamburg

 

 

Annika Kahrs és una artista resident a Hamburg que treballa principalment amb vídeo, performance i fotografia.

 

En la seva obra, Annika Kahrs examina representació i interpretació, interessant-se per les construccions socials i científiques, i per les relacions orgàniques evolucionades com les que s’estableixen entre humans i animals. Les seves pel·lícules oscil·len entre posades en escena òbvies i l’observació estil documental; una característica distintiva de les seves pel·lícules és que l’artista mai no s’amaga en el film, fins i tot quan la seva presència només es revela en una breu mirada d’un actor o actriu envers la directora. Això mostra un apropament particular a l’entorn que sembla quasi guiat per un procés matemàtic.

 

Els vídeos d’Annika Kahrs són com coreografies composades. La música sovint juga un paper important, no només representada pictòricament o a la banda sonora, sinó també convertida en imatge; a través de la seva selecció i els ajustos realitzats durant el procés d’edició, la partitura esdevé cinema i, posteriorment, la pel·lícula com a partitura pot esdevenir una altra pel·lícula en la ment de l’espectador.
