flüstern

flüstern, silent sharing

exhibition

INI Prostor, Prague, 2021

The exhibition flüstern - silent sharing poses questions about the permeability of time, about simultaneity and the interweavings of past, present and future. flüstern approaches an understanding of time which is foundational for both exhibited works Gebettet (Drain, Frick) and while we fall asleep (Frick).


Gebettet is a four-part installation and sound-composition. Based on four 19th century beds and field recordings from their rural surroundings. The installation Gebettet (2020, Hausen i.W.) was redeveloped within the framework of flüstern in the backyard of INI Prostor in Prague. The original dimensions of the beds remain unchanged. However the beds themselves are no longer present. The composition is unchanged, bringing rural sounds to a city context.
