On Sunday, 10 April, at 3 PM Agnieszka Chodysz-Foryś – curator of the exhibition, will guide us through the “Silence of Sounds”.
“Silence is not quietness but anxiety. Silence is deadly because it is human nature to act; we associate a lack of stimuli with the ultimate biological end. For this reason, we listen closely to silence just to make sure that it is not absolute, to prove that perfect silence does not exist because any sound contradicts it and becomes a testimony to being alive. Silence is how we celebrate death rather than life.”
Marek Wasilewski, “Możliwość ciszy”
The title of the exhibition leads us into a field of soundscapes, audio phenomena and the acoustic social space. The phrase “Silence of Sounds” provides a pretext for an in-depth analysis of the notion of silence, its utopian and paradoxical dimension.
Entry to the exhibition tour is free. We look forward to welcoming you!
