for Zorka Wollny’s exhibition: Environment: A Future Retrospective –
Sokolowsko, July 2019
with: Irina Gheorghe, Ana Kavalis, Pauline Payen, Karoline Strys, Lyllie Rouvière, Zorka Wollny
bass: Leah Buckareff (Nadja)
Music band. Seven women. Six vocals + bass. We intonate haunted ambient with witchcraft ritual. Our bass player Leah (NADJA) provides mesmerising sonic foundation with drones and processed sounds.
A stunning orchestra of alien sounds, at times difficult to believe they emanated from human bodies.
The work ebbed and flowed in intensity, ranging from light breath work, to soft rain sounds, to the cacophonous screeches of exotic animals and the razor blade noises of inorganic materials.
What interests Wollny most is “how such actions, when made by a group of people, change the quality of sound from obvious to indefinable: how timbre becomes a dominating factor.”
And, indeed, most sounds were abstracted from their clear referents. Though one might try, the experience becomes less about discerning a recognizable soundscape—a forest, for example—and more about allowing the experience of sound to wash over the body. The audience is prompted to reconsider its relationship to sound, relinquishing the categorical impulse to associate sound with phenomenon, and instead surrendering to the psychosomatic experience of abstract noise.

“The majority of gallery visitors are art enthusiasts, casual visitors and vernissage guests – in other words nice-to-have visitors – and collectors and art professionals form only the minority” of the public. (M. Resch, Management of art galleries, 2015)
According to the report of GmbH 2017, more than 70% of the exhibition visitors are less interested in the presented artworks and their concepts or in an exchange with artists than in the probability to meet curators and gallerists that can push their career; not to mention the possibility of getting cheap drinks.
These facts make us, curators, think twice about which artists and works to present in a proper conceptual direction, in order to create a meaningful and coherent group exhibition.
The serious question we might ask now is what makes an exhibition more meaningful than another? According to which criteria should an art show be evaluated? The numbers of visitors? The profit of the sales of drinks at the bar and of artworks? The feedbacks from art critics and audience? The smile on the curators’ faces?
In the group show “keywords_required” we propose to artists, art lovers, collectors and nice-to-have visitors to question what motivations lead the public here and what information they receive. To evaluate the meaningfulness of the exhibition, we selected a list of conceptual keywords that permitted us to set up a sample of artists who are likely to reuse and reinterpret them, to find out if these are transmitted to the public.

« Parc » is a 4 minute audio piece from 2014. The specific sounds were produced with processed recordings of water, electric guitar, and human whistles. The result evokes the atmosphere of a jungle with its wetness and whistling birds.
