Jan Vorisek –Edge-o-phobia, Live

Thurs | 7PM


Jan Vorisek works across sculpture, installation, performance, improvised music, and noise. In site-specific assemblages of accumulated materials and objects, the elements that he exhibits are continuously disassembled to be subjected to new systems of organization. Subtly animated structures and scores emerge to function as both the producers of and resonant spaces for sounds. The recurring motif of corrosion—of infinitive configurations of sound and objects—is used as a production method: ongoing adjustments of the used sonic materialities and vibrating surfaces are constitutive of Vorisek’s potentially endless production processes.

On the occasion of READYMADES BELONG TO EVERYONE, Vorisek continues this endeavor with a new iteration of his ongoing piece, Edge-o-phobia.
