  Atahotel Varese****
  19 giugno - 6 novembre 2010
State borders and how one approaches them emotionally, the tension, that imposes itself reminds me of a distant past, when borders were even tighter. This fear of being exposed is what I try to document, by working with speech and formal packaging. The days, when these borders were the epitome of intimidation, extradition, discrimination etc., is the departing thought for me. I would like to search out the witnesses to history who document these times.
In a Speech-Tone-Sound installation I'm trying to convey these unsettled feelings.
(I presume, that the anxiety has diminished over the years, not only because we become accustomed to crossing borders, but also because borders have become looser, eventually borders have opened.)
In a progression of five time zones (1 time zone spanning 15 years) one can accustically experience German, and simultaneously Belgian, Luxembourgian witnesses of history, beginning 2006 and going backwards in time to before World War II. One can hear only how they truly experienced the borders then, and still do daily.
Differing nations are facing each other in speech and space. Speech is the sound medium for these three fronts; dramatic experiences attack each other from three sides in the room. Three nationalities are facing each other: with equal experiences, equal needs and yet separated for decades.
The Space-Sound-Installation begins with the oldest Belgian, German and Luxembourgian witness of history still alive. From the depth of time the dramatic feeling of uncertainty, extradition etc. intensify through sound and word repetitions. The consternation that the listener experiences is the goal of my Space-Sound-Installation.
I assume that the monologues become less spectacular the closer they move toward 2006; the monologues that I change dramatically and artistically through sound and word-color.
It is important to me, that 15 authentic reports are played out in a specific sequence.
The listener enters a pent-up room filled with sounds.
Silence...
First soft and individually starting monologues locate the loudspeaker and with it the individual speaker.
Following each individual introduction of verbal contexts, all speakers turn down, determined to grab the attention of the listeners. Each protagonist authentically narrates his emotional experience with the boundary.
Volume and the number of narrators increase.
Absolute silence...
Then, ever-increasing up to the final...
The addition of sounds creates an orchestral character. Solos of emotionally-charged voices and herumphing will structure the whole.
Each loudspeaker documents a contemporary witness. Thus it is possible for the listener to follow the sounds and hear the feature important to him.
