NOW - site-specific sound intervention

13 Jun 2018 - 20:00
Now - Sound Intervention by Julie Faubert @ ausland © Julie Faubert

NOW is a site-specific sound intervention that amalgamates together the singular collective history/actuality of ausland, auslanders close relationship to experimental music and arts, and the very spatial situation of ausland: it’s spaces, ways of encountering in space, ways of occupying ausland spaces. During a month, I will be attending most of ausland’s events, activities; talking with ausland members; listening to some recordings that were done there: being there in that space. From these numerous hours of recordings on site, I will create a site-specific sound situation unfolding through different listening positions in ausland. This sound situation will act both as a way of complexifying the experience of ausland as a site, an encounter, a narrative of people, objects, events; and as a collective listening experience that unsettles the relation between intimacy and publicness. I think of these spatial experiences as a manner to put things, the world, and sense itself into question. I am looking for a constant agitation of the tiny line between fiction (the possible / imaginaries) and the real (what is there, concretely, in a place), appealing to a specific kind of attention and presence

On the opening day, visitors will be invited to share in a site-specific collective listening situation. In addition to listening, you are invited to join us for drinks, snacks, discussions.

The installation will be accessible before and after all events at ausland until December 2018
