Takehito Koganezawa, Gerwald Rockenschaub (tracks & graphics), Guan Xiao, Zhen Xu

Sound is present in this exhibition in its most diverse shapes: as structuring principle, as strategy of adaptation, to organize and mix. The Chinese artist Guan Xiao collected images from the World Wide Web and newly combined them as readymade-material. He thereby uses sound as structuring moment to create an order of the visual material. The slow sequence of changing body positions in the video of Zhen Xu are accompanied by spherical sounds. Takehito Koganezawa created a sound-collage, which is composed by mere coincidence: 99  sound mountings, each 15 seconds, are combined with the shots of an abandoned former East-Berlin apartment. Artist Gerwald Rockenschaub composed tracks of electronic music as an optional soundtrack, inviting the viewer to transform the perception of the works on view.
