Infinite Ear

Date

From 8 June 2018 to 2 September 2018

Hours

11:00–22:00

Place

Central Gallery

Infinite Ear is an exhibition of hearing situations that has been derived from an ongoing series of international workshops and dialogues with deaf and hard of hearing individuals.

Developed in Moscow as part of Garage’s Field Research Program, the artists and curators explored various connections between society’s understanding of deafness and multiple dimensions of Russian cultural history. The resulting exhibition presents a unique sonic space where the public are invited to hear, feel, understand, dream sound in a way they have never encountered before. In this project, sound ceases to be an exclusively physical notion that can be measured by an audiogram and becomes an artistic value with limitless interpretations.

The experience includes WITHIN, a display of instruments by Tarek Atoui, played during concerts and workshops, and a project by Alison O’Daniel composed of sculptures and a video series. To amplify the central exhibition thesis—that each person has their own way to perceive sound through vibration, body movement, sign language, images, and fiction—an experimental mediation will be established by the artists Lendl Barcelos, Valentina Desideri and Myriam Lefkowitz.

Please note that the individual mediation available at the exhibition is carried out as a performative interaction initiated by the artist. Therefore, the number of participants in the mediation process per day varies from 30 to 100 people. For this reason, only registering for a group session guarantees you a place. To register and get more information, visit the information desk. Group size: 10 people.


Curated by Council. The exhibition at Garage is organized by Anastasia Mityushina and Iaroslav Volovod, Garage Curators, in collaboration with the Inclusive Department team.

Garage is grateful to Meyer Sound and SDT-Rent for technical support of the exhibition.
