On Thursday May the 4th – at Via Nizza MACRO www.museomacro.org opens a sound art exhibition called Otros sonidos, otros paisajes, curated by Antonio Arévalo and Leando Pisano.
This is the first time that sound projects from 5 Chilean artists are displayed in Italy. It is a real journey to wonderful and unknown (to many people) Chilean landscapes. An interpretation through sounds of geographic areas on the other side of the world.
The artists are: Fernando Godoy, with a focus on Atacama desert; Claudia González Godoy, describing the passing of time through the noise of drops in Mapocho river; Sebastian Jatz, with a site specific installation that follows the criteria of an Aeolian Harp; Rainer Krause and an anthropomorphic voice to tell about the connection between human kind and the land where they live and create art; Alejandra Perez Nuñez, who proposes an interactive work about the Antartich.
Five artists who, through artificial or natural sounds reflect on the space creating new and unprecedented connections. Their way- which does not imply words- narrates unheard stories. They focus on the role and importance of sound art in the International contemporary artistic panorama considering the influence sounds can have on human and social sciences.
Therefore, this exhibition- involving mainly hearing- activates thoughts, sensations and stimulating considerations to better understand human kind and the space that we use on this planet.
