RAM radioartemobile presents VOCATION/only sound, curated by Federica Bueti with sound installations by Brandon LaBelle, Thomas Köner and Liliana Moro.
VOCATION is an investigation of sound as an emotive material, dynamic material of reality, a physical short circuit that precedes the moment of theoretical reflection.
The works by the three artists reflect in their approach the emotive, involving and seductive dimension of the sonar event, underlining the liberating potential of those practices which make the proximity with the user and the friction between body and space an important imaginative vehicle. For this reason, VOCATION, through the three sonar interventions, invites us to reconsider the importance of the physics of reality.
Each of the sound installations put together by the artists will be simultaneously hosted in three different museums that have supported the idea of creating a collaborative event, a geographical expansion of the project hosted in Rome. Pierre Bal-Blanc, Lorenzo Benedetti and Alenka Gregorič have collaborated in partnership with the Rome event.
The sound installation by Brandon LaBelle will be hosted by the CAC Brétigny, France.
The sound installation by Thomas Köner will be hosted by De Vleeshal, Middelburg Holland.
The sound installation by Liliana Moro will be hosted by the Mestna Galerija Ljubljana, Slovenia.
