Artists’ Voices

Sound exhibition from December 11, 2015 till March 26, 2016
Opening on Thursday December 10, 2015, 6 PM – 9 PM

Artists’ Voices assembles a group of sound pieces linked to the theme of the voice. The voice considered as a strong marker on the unconscious, a pre-language primal expression that is directly connected to emotions and is identifiable by a body of signs: tone, vibration, timbre, rhythm. The sound pieces are songs, declamations, monologues, a reading, a discourse, a dialogue, an echo, a whisper, a noise, a scream or breathing, up to the point of rupture, dysphonia, aphonia, silence, or even the return of sound and music.
The invited artists are either artists with whom we have already worked with or artists with whom we are currently preparing a future project, others met more recently whose work is effectively or supposedly linked to sound, recording techniques, copy and paste, the performative, repetition, singing…
The exhibition presents a simple installation favourable for listening to the different sound pieces individually: iPods and headphones, other works will invade the exhibition space intermittently or silently.
The exhibition Artists’ Voices gathers works by Rita Ackermann, Alexandre Bianchini, Gerard Byrne, Valentin Carron, Claire Fontaine, Jason Dodge, Giulia Essyad, Sylvie Fleury, Gilles Furtwängler, Mathis Gasser, Marcus Geiger/Heimo Zobernig, Vivienne Griffin, Thomas Hirschhorn, Tobias Kaspar et Karl Holmqvist, Anne Le Troter, Beat Lippert, Tobias Madison, Fabian Marti, Jonathan Monk, Damián Navarro, James Richards, Emanuel Rossetti, Ryan Conrad Sawyer, Ramaya Tegegne, Ricardo Valentim, Jean-Michel Wicker…
Artists’ Voices proposes in March 2016 the launch of a double vinyl associated with a download link and a set of performances.
