Roman Stolyar at Museum Of Contemporary Art, Zagreb
We often consider a speech as something existing separately from other sounds. We often perceive sounds as aliens existing in space. We often think that space, as a complex and infinite being, can hardly be described by speech. The exploration of the unity of speech, sound and space requires complete attention and deepness from those who want to explore. The way to explore Space, Speech and Sound is the unity of Spontaneity, Synesthesia and Synthesis.
When an unknown word is spoken, it is becoming an alien sound. When the sound is created with
certain loudness, pitch and curve, it can be perceived as a word, even unknown. What happens in
our minds when we hear something – can we recognize it as a word or just as a sound? What is an
effort one has to do to make a sudden sound a word? Throughout their performance, Croatian
artist Vesna Mačković, Russian musician Roman Stolyar and Austrian electric violinist Mia Zabelka are exploring fragile borders between sounds and words, visual and non-visual, heard and unheard.
