Exhibition 'Co-Sounding: Towards a Sonorous Land'

9 Oct 2023 — 3 Dec, Exhibition - Zone2Source, Amstelpark 4, 1083 HZ Amsterdam

Polyphonic Landscapes is an artistic exhibition on sound and ecology. Four sound artists have been invited to explore these questions over the course of one year: ACPA alum Budhaditya Chattopadhyay, (IN/NL), Yolande Harris (UK/US), Teemu Lehmusruusu (FI) and Lia Mazzari (IT/UK). During residencies in and around the Amstelpark, the artists are working on new sound works that facilitate embodied and situated ways of knowing and experiencing landscape. The progression of their investigations will be shared during three public research seminars, a publication and an exhibition at Zone2Source.

Budhaditya Chattopadhyay presents the work Co-Sounding: Towards a Sonorous Land. Consisting of a series of framed canvasses equipped with sensors, code and field recordings, this installation sets out to decolonise the visual dominance of the static landscape painting by representing landscape through our more intimate senses of sound and hearing. Spilling
over the canvas into the space with sound recordings from locations inspired by 17th century landscape paintings, the audience participates through movement and environmental sensors installed in the canvasses.
