Instrument was developed on residency at Bauhaus Foundation in 2021 and exhibited in Gropius Haus, Nov 2021 – Jun 2022, in parallel to works by Charlotte Posenenske / Alexis Lowry (Dia Art Foundation).
“Instrument is a tool for navigating in fictional, collective spaces. The sensitive sound sculpture is a means to explore a complex infrastructure that includes touch and affect.
The Instrument also serves as an experiential medium to find out what the use or biography of their work might mean for an individual group. Is it an independent organism that gradually unfolds during the performance? Or does the Instrument serve as an exploration of collective boundaries and transitions? For Rita Evans, this use is a collective action that visualizes the Instrument and makes it tangible.
The documentation shows the workshop that took place and on which the work is based. Visitors hear how the object sounds. The drawings, plans, room scores and objects shed a light on process components that emerged from encounters with the sound sculpture.”
