sound installations by Jacek Doroszenko

In the project, a sound is treated as a legitimate material of visual art, audible and visible spheres interact with each other. Ewa Doroszenko confronts herself with the acoustic environment through remote references, attempting to translate selected audio events to the visual language. Her huge graphic prints illustrate the flow of sound material: collecting, archiving, reproduction in the context of digital times. She focuses on harmony, melody, form, and rhythm. Employing digital collages, the artist tries to present the process of creating and producing contemporary experimental electronic music. Music production offers an unlimited field of possibilities. Any sound can be made, manipulated, re-recorded, re-manipulated, etc. But while an infinite range of options might sound appealing, it also means that decision making is really hard.

Prints were prepared as a part of the Artist-in-Residence program at Atelierhaus Salzamt in Linz, Austria and Foundation Hangar in Barcelona, Spain. Artworks were presented at Fait Gallery in Brno at the post-competition exhibition – “Exercises of listening” in 2016.
