11.02.2020 Presentation of the "Listened in Museum" project
On February 15 (Saturday) at 16.00 we invite you to the presentation of the "Listened In Museum" project by Alexey Shmurak and Oleg Shpudeik.
"Listened In Museum" is a series of music and sound interventions in the halls of the National Art Museum of Ukraine, the purpose of which is to reproduce the sound world depicted in the paintings, indirectly recorded by the artist in visual images.
For the first intervention, Oleksiy Shmurak and Oleg Shpudeyko chose the hall of Ukrainian landscape of the XIX-early XX century - examined more than thirty paintings on sound content and grouped them into eight blocks, each of which corresponds to a separate column. Sound artists focused on the sound of open spaces, the atmosphere, the sea, rivers, animals and vehicles of the time.
Mission of the "Listened Museum" - to expand the concept of visual art, to offer another approach to the perception of the museum collection, combining immersiveness (immersion), exploration, relaxation (rest) and synesthesia (communication, coordination of different sensory organs - vision, vision sense of space).
Oleksiy Shmurak and Oleg Shpudeyko are Ukrainian composers and sound artists who have been performing musical performances, installations, lectures and studies of acoustic ecology in recent years. Collaborated with the Goethe-Institut, Plivka Space, the Center for Contemporary Art Foundation, the Closer and Mezzanine Art Spaces, the Lviv Regional Philharmonic, the Akademie der Künste in Berlin, the Alexander Dovzhenko National Center, the Museum of Modern Art.
