AMBIENT FOR A SILENT FOREST
A Sound Installation in Resonance to Joseph Beuys
Followed by an Artist Talk
Joseph Beuys’ “The End of the 20th Century” is a key art work in the permanent collection of the Pinakothek der Moderne. The installation comprising 44 basalt columns questions – in title, materiality and shape – the very meaning of time and space in relation to society and the individual. Kalas Liebfried’s ambient sound installation fuse the visual perception of space with an aural experience, transcending physical spaces into atmospherically charged environments.
In reference to Joseph Beuys’ artistic and philosophic legacy, Kalas Liebfried will present a site-specific sound performance addressing the tension between naturally grown form and men’s interference. Using archive material of extinct and endangered bird species in relation to modular synthesizers and recordings of transverse flutes, Liebfried processes a dynamic multi-channel composition as a response to the silent forests
