The exhibition “Untitled” (topoanalyis) is an acousmatic setting created by surfaces that map personal sonic paths and memories. In the book ‘The poetics of Space’ (1958), Gaston Bachelard introduced the concept of “topoanalysis” as “the systematic psychological study of the sites of our intimate lives.” The presented work extends the surfaces of different domestic objects sonically through images and sounds.


curatorial text:

With the return to exhibitions live and in person, SoundsAbout contemplates the reappearance of a present presence. In the sudden actuality of this moment, we explore the perspectives and relations provided by regained temporalities, intimate relations and shared gazes. At this time a peculiar nostalgia emerges, a desire for something outside of our comprehension, something we cannot grasp or perhaps never existed. Presence is tempered in equal parts hindsight and anticipation. With this series of four sounding installations, we seek to speak in the tension of the present tense, to invest in the possibility of being re-bound to each other, to objects, materials, sonorities, moments, ideas, and spaces. How will this time be remembered, and how long will it last? We already miss the now.
