THE EXHIBITION OF SOUND SCULPTURES AND THE SHARING OF ETHNOGRAPHIC RESEARCH

June 8-19, 2021 – Goethe-Institut Bucure┼čti

The research project had an artistic-participant sharing, the two sound sculptures, Prelude for organ and Trittico, created in collaboration with the artisans with whom we collaborated, were exhibited at the Goethe Institut in Bucurest.
The two works, one exhibited inside and the other outside, intended to reflect the Saxon experience, landscapes and anthropic communities.
We have tried to stop and manifest the sound and material time, to make it experimental and aware public. The participant was able to experience an immediate experience of the Saxon communities.
In both works we installed loudspeakers that reproduced all the material previously recorded during our research, from interviews to stories to the landscape of each community. Finally we discussed with the audience the anthropological result of this research, the importance of Saxon craftsmanship within other communities, the fragility and strength of a community that is still present and strong today thanks to associations and foundations. present.
