ETUDES is a project whose starting point is a research around the action of hammering and the memory contained in this gesture. It is a work of research and performance in which each ETUDE brings into play and activates stories, personal archives, movements collected during meetings and conversations with people and territories with a practice linked to hammering. In Potsdam, Aina Alegre proposes an ETUDE which focuses on the relationship between this gesture and the sound environment of an urban space. For this particular collection, she will use the "situationist drifts" system : Every day for over a week, she explores the landscape of Potsdam-Schlaatz and collects the surrounding sounds, actions and gestures in the public space. In a second phase of the residency, she composes a choreographic material from these collected sounds, together with the musician Josep Tutusaus. Both artists will together create and install one space to host the dialogue of physical and sound materials.
Following the showing, we invite to a talk with the artists.
The showing takes place in the Studio 4 of Studiohaus.
