Sound Art is a volatile art form, oscillating between different genres and media. It readily adopts and adapts itself to varying aesthetic expressions. The exhibition SOUNDINGS 2 – NORDIC SOUND ART GRADUATE SHOW presents examples hereof. In the diverse soundscapes we meet calm, relaxing sounds, intense sounds that scares and provokes, transient, delicate sounds. The humming and buzzing or the total lack of acoustic stimulus can be persistent, disrupting of our everyday disregard for involuntary noises, or simply meditative. As the sounds press on our mental and physical space we must enter the installations to co-create a particular experience of heightened sensibility. With SOUNDINGS 2 the Museum of Contemporary Art facilitates such sensuous experiences.
Artists: Martinka Bobrikova (SK), Oscar de Carmen (ES), Cecilia Jonsson (SE), Signe Lidén (NO), Christian Mastrup (DK), Joonas Siren (FI), Elin Øyen Vister (NO), Lauri Wuolio (FI).The Exhibition is sponsored by KUNO, Nordic Culture Fund, and The Royal Academy of Fine Arts
