Opening: Regionale 19 – Sound Embodied

We are celebrating the opening of the exhibition Regionale 19: Sound Embodied, which presents works by artists who deal with sound and digital media in different ways.

The exhibition at HeK shows a selection of works dealing with the attributes of sound and studying the visualisation of acoustic experiences. The artists presented, experiment with the physical and sculptural characteristics of sound. Some use resonators to reveal the concealed sounds of objects and electric devices. Others employ sound as a conceptual guide to examine social media behaviour or to evaluate the production and staging of music events. Whether through robotic installations, augmented reality works, or synesthetic compositions – the artistic approaches enable us to broaden our sound horizons.

The curator Boris Magrini will introduce the exhibition and selected works. The talk is followed by an aperitif, to which all visitors are invited.

Artists: Markus Aebersold & Chris Handberg, Jonas Baumann, Anja Braun, Emma Cozzani, Elvire Flocken-Vitez, Dirk Koy, Karin Lustenberger, Marie Matusz, Elia Navarro, Frederic Pagace, Gabriele Rendina Cattani, Patrick Steffen, Fiona Valentine Thomann, Ambra Viviani, Michel Winterberg, Katharina Zimmerhackl
