Ve Vaňkovce 2, Brno, Czech Republic
Exercises of Listening is a continuation of a creative project by Polish artistic duo Ewa Doroszenko and Jacek Doroszenko. At the starting point of the show, a film created at the Fundació AAVC Hangar in Barcelona in 2014, The Same Horizon Repeated at Every Moment of the Walk, is projected. In the film the landscape becomes a musical notation system, where moving figure determines the pitch on a frequency- related scale.
In the first solo show of Ewa and Jacek Doroszenko in Brno, sound is treated as a legitimate material of visual art, allowing audible and visible spheres to interact with each other. The sound recording technique allows to approach the transparency of the environmental sound and to present it visually in a new context.
Exercises of Listening is a recapitulation of the entire project’s various themes. Jacek Doroszenko creates a combination of sounds that have been captured in an immersive environment. The film It’s Hard to Find a Polyphonic Body produced during an artistic residence at the Kunstnarhuset Messen Ålvik in Norway in 2015 will be presented at FAIT GALLERY PREVIEW for the first time ever. Ewa Doroszenko confronts herself with acoustic environment through more remote references, attempting to translate selected audio events to the visual language. Her graphic prints illustrate the flow of sound material: collecting, archiving, reproduction in the context of digital times.
