Listening to the image’s silence, this exhibition choreographs sonic vibrations and perceptual mirages in a post-Cagean vacuum of senses and experience.

The cinematic work of Manon de Boer interrogates the liminal areas of sound and vision while Pavel Büchler’s practice concentrates on the ephemeral and the neglected, “the closing of the gap between the ‘no’ and the ‘thing’”. Hreinn Fridfinnsson’s lyrical compositions portray the thing’s essence and its silent double while VALIE EXPORT reunites the poetic and the political in a love-embracing gesture of the breath.
