A video, Silent China , with excerpts of recorded sounds and notes I made during my journey in China, draws among others, a vertical rectangle in the exhibition space. A video without images, but maybe a ‘black’ image is more than an‘image’? The title of this video refers also to the title of the exhibition by this I send you some noise from the city I am in . ‘Noise’ can have several meanings; the ‘noise’ of traffic in a city, the ‘noise’ of machines, …, but as well ‘noise’ in the head. Questioning a time being, questioning your perceptions. Not that the aim is to find answers, on the contrary, but realize a story with an open end.
I use ‘send’, like you can send a postcard or a letter. To give by this an idea of the place you are. You can send your greetings to your friends or family and say that everything is fine and soon you will see each other back.
Writing is a silent medium. But if you read the text, it’s a sound, a voice in your head.
It can even be an image.
