@ HKW, Berlin & Spektrum, Berlin
Please turn your phones off, and follow me. Listen. It's faint but it's there, regular and chaotic. Watch your step. For centuries we wondered where lives the soul. Let’s keep exploring. What does it sound like? Aha! Excellent question. To your right, we bottle tears. Care for a sample? Surprisingly sweet, heh? Here, memories are being processed. The electric hum is usually louder. You like the colours? Just you wait. This one is my personal favourite. Beg your pardon? I can’t tell you yet, but you’re in for a treat.
Drawing from aesthetics of medical traditions, Gray Matters imagines new rituals for harvesting data from the body and deciphering the mysteries of the mind. The healing ritual is a live vivisection on emotion, unfolding compositional layers as invisible signals are presented to the audience.
