Related event ”Ways of Telling” YAMASAKI Ami Artists' Talk
From 16:00 to 18:00 on Saturday, 23 October, exhibiting artist YAMASAKI Ami was at the gallery to give occasional voice performances. The archive video of this performance and talk will be released later.
In the exhibition, Yamasaki presents a work in which she edits the sounds of Shibuya with the guidelines of "sound" and "resonance" for herself. The work launches a soundscape that is not unlike the real world outside the gallery's window.
As her own voice is used in the work, she, as a voice artist, usually captures the inherent resonance of space through her voice, making the unheard present.
The video of the performance and talk of the day is released on YouTube.
