PERFORMANCE SPACE PRESENTS
As part of Dimension Crossing: A season of performance and installation that considers states of in-between and transition.
Drawing on her architectural research into resonant structures and whispering walls,Whisper Pitch makes reference to visual, structural and material elements within the environment and draws them into conversation with parabolic forms, of the kind found in churches, mosques and other places of worship and contemplation.
Amid the ambient noise and bustle of public buildings, whispering walls offer the possibility for discretion and secrecy in the open. Backen’s gently performative installation invites public activation and is infused with the possibility for mass communication within a private act.
Robyn Backen’s Whisper Pitch is a site-specific installation for the foyer of Carriageworks.
20 APR – 19 MAY
10am – 6pm daily
