From the organizer:
AUDINT presents a collection of works together for their exhibition, named – AUDinst019: Upload=Delphic Panaceas – at the Zorlu Performing Arts Center in March 2017 as a part of the Sonar Istanbul +D Programme powered by Digi.logue. Involving old and new work, the exhibition will be comprised of an intensely immersive closed space that uses Subpacs (which vibrate bass and infrasonic frequencies down the spinal column); headphones which will amplify the 20-minute narrative of the work; fog machines which obscure the artworks on the walls of the space; miracle fruit (which reverses the polarity of the taste buds – meaning that sour tastes sweet) and wood chips which provide a scent not usually associated with interior gallery spaces. These will all be used to continually modulate the 5 senses so that participants are forced to acknowledge both the vulnerability of the sensorium, and the potential of other forces (military, entertainment and economic) to territorialise those realms that reside at the edges of perception.
The two sonic narratives transmitted through the headphones last for 20 minutes each and flip from one to the other, referencing the vinyl record/book/print project that they are taken from – Martial Hauntology, which was released by AUDINT in 2014. Martial Hauntology mixes the whispered and the unsound into an audible journey that links the underground groove of the Large Hadron Collider with the vaults of the Bank of Hell; connects the Dead Record Network with the Phantom Hailer; and traces the evolution of the Wandering Soul Tapes to the viral dynamics of the online spectreware IREX2. Below are the opening excerpts from each side of the vinyl record.
Visiting Hours: 10:00 – 22:00
