MELTING GALLERY

The sound installation was created in collaboration with the polish fine artist Diana Lelonek as part of the Culturescapes festival in Basel. Field recordings of three melting Alpine glaciers: du Rhone, Aletsch and Morteratsch are composed into an immersive soundscape composition and form a symphony of disappearing glaciers. The sound of a slowly trickling catastrophe, whose arrival is hardly spectacular, is blurred, present everywhere and nowhere, and gives rise to anxiety and is lined with fear. Alpine glaciers are disappearing very quickly; some of them have already gone forever. A trip to the glacier, listening to the ubiquitous sounds of uniform dripping, resembles a countdown. The sound is a direct sign of irretrievable loss. The multichannel sound installation, presented in an empty exhibition space, fills the room with sound, while the classic ‚ white cube’ form has not been filled with objects.
