|After the successful presentation of the project TO HEAR IS TO SEE in the City Museum/Napoleon House in Györ/Hungary (2006) and its last one so far in the TRIANGLE PROJECT SPACE
in San Antonio, Texas/USA (2008) the exhibition will now make a stop in the Project Room MAG3, where it will be exhibited for the 18th time since the establishment of the project in 1996.
The original concept has been retained, which can be briefly outlined as follows:
...the project, which was established in 1996 with the theme "TO HEAR IS TO SEE", revolves around three contentual and artistic areas: IMAGE, SOUND and TEXT. Artists from diverse disciplines like literature, sculpture, film, painting, theatre and music have participated...
"...in order to perform the game in the electronic space, like in this particular case, one obviously needs a radio transmitter. Another prerequisite for the conceptual functioning of the project is the existence of a main receiver, like for example a museum or exhibition room, where sound sculptures, landscapes, images and musical pieces are not only transmitted and made audible via radio receiver, stereo amplifier unit and loudspeakers, but where, as mentioned before, associations of the artists to their respective sound work are presented in form of photographs and texts. In this context it must be stressed that in the actually visible exhibition in the form of text and image whatever is to be depicted only relates to what is depicted by offering a possible example for its visual and contentual representation but needs not be understood in this way..."
The exhibition is realised in cooperation with Art Radio Ö1 of the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF) and Radio Augustin.
During the three weeks of the exhibition a selection of the sound works will be broadcast on the first Sunday, 9th April 2017, at 23:03 by Art Radio
A further selection of some acoustic words will be broadcast by Radio Augustin on 10th April, 17th April and 24th April from 15:00 to 16:00 on each respective day.
Thomas KUSCHNY`s sound work comfort/discomfort (as well as its photographic association and related text) will be presented for the first time in this exhibition.
