About

‘Anthropophonia’ is an installation representing a cosmic entanglement of sound and fabric that embodies resilience through darkness. Set within the infinite of the deep sea, aquatic mythology and sonic dark matter collide to interrogate spaces that can neither be suppressed or fully understood. As the site of the source of all life, one discovers here beauty and healing in the power of the unknown. 

Anthropophony consists of the Greek ‘Anthropos’ - meaning human, and ‘phoni’ - meaning voice, ultimately suggestive of all sound produced by humans. A soundscape with healing frequencies envelops a network of blue textile - a nostalgic and remedial colour of the ocean, femininity and fluidity – tied and fanned reminiscently of Caribbean Carnival celebrations. 

Mythological hybrid figures appear in encounters within imaginary spaces. Permeable and plasmic, ‘Anthropophonia’ is a meeting point for tradition, memory and meditations both past and future that extends itself into an unfixed state of being. This site of sonic and performative ritual will explore the fluidity and ongoing transformation of the artists’ experience as Afro-German artists, the dissonance between the interior of the self and external perceptions, historical whitewashing and anti-hierarchical space-making.
