With interdisciplinary exhibition projects, performances, an opera installation and a diverse discourse program, the series VOICE:over at Galerie Nord| Kunstverein Tiergarten presents various phenomena of the voice. The projects negotiate the spectrum of the voice as a medium within the medium itself – considering scream as well as speaking or singing.
The second project in the programme series, the solo show Relegation ~ via by Catherine Lorent, combines two exhibition series in Galerie Nord: VOICE:over and Grenzgängerinnnen.
Catherine Lorent, visual artist, musician and art historian (PhD), creates complex Gesamtkunstwerks of voice, painting, drawing, sculpture, performance and popular and classical music in theatrical settings – hybrid installations that play with baroque references and dissolve boundaries of art genres. Different format drawings of strange chimaeras and peculiar coats of arms are mounted on the wall or hung from the ceiling above a grand piano, together with electronic guitars. Electromagnetic interfaces affixed to the guitars’ strings interact with movements of the visitors and transform them into sounds. The gallery’s space provides a stage for Lorent’s daring experiments on amalgamating visual art and music, high and popular culture, symmetry and entropy.
