aRzu Saglam - Further 5th phase of de-knowing


STUK, Q-O2 and Musica present a sample of new sound art in Belgium. Six promising sound artists have been selected for the Showcase Emerging Sound 2021 at STUK. The showcase shows the diversity of the Belgian sound landscape and gives the next generation of sound artists a boost. Given the circumstances, this year's showcase will primarily be an expo. The expo will run from Wednesday 12th of until Sunday 16th of May and features four installations.

Dominique 't Jolle will show her brand new installation Behind the Tune based on her own experience with tinnitus. By moving in and along the work, the listener imagines itself in the head of someone with ear buzzings. In the inner courtyard you can walk past Bling rring by Anne van de Star, a meditative work in which a resounding dialogue is created between two rotating steel rings. aRzu Saglam has a more philosophical approach: in her project Further 5th phase of de-knowing she observes the behavior of volcanoes through image, sound and text. Finally, Charlie Usher presents his installation Mixed feelings, which makes cultural samples, field recordings, instruments, and timer switches sound from half-unpacked speakers and vintage Leslie speakers.
