Karel Verhoeven (BE), Emi Kodama (BE, CA), Elias Heuninck (BE)
Karel Verhoeven, Emi Kodama and Elias Heuninck all studied media-art at School of Arts Ghent. After a group-exhibition they seemed to share an affinity for space, sound, narrative and materiality.
They collaborate (for their first time in the BUDA-studio’s’) on Topos Sonos, a spatial performance, an audio-visual exploration of the Canarian island La Gomera and its whistle language El Siblo, used to communicate through the rural landscape.
Topos Sonos is a piece about the relation of sound, story and the topography of the island and about the sculpturality of contemporary communication infrastructure. Spectators will be guided through a big black space by stories, spatial sound experiences, electronic devices, graphic maps and sculptural scenography ending with a videowork bringing all elements together.
At the end of their residency hey’ll open up their studio for a series of small showings to the BUDA-compañeros.
Topos Sonos will première beginning of July at Mu.ZEE Ostend.
