The burly word catches the erm
A new multi-media multi-channel multi-tonal exhibition from Samuel Brzeski on making your early morning salutations, doing your breathing exercises, drinking your protein smoothie, singing to yourself in the shower, that nice feeling of the mouth in the shape of an O, that noise that you make when you want to show someone you are attentively listening to what they are saying, the bumbling mumbles, the meandering hums, and other verbal rehearsals. All of these vocalised elements of disposable language come together in four acts of a kind of operatic babble.
The exhibition includes the launch of the Vibrational Semantics publication series, which explores the performed voice’s ability to shift between signification and sonority, from speech sound to noise. Text and sound commissions from Cia Rinne, Holly Pester, Lisa Busby, Daniela Cascella and Marie Thams.
Curated by Julie Lillelien Porter for Oscillations – Exercises in Resilience.
