Residencies Studio Sessions: Talk by Matthias Sohr (Germany/Switzerland), Artist-in-Residence

Description

31 May 2017, Wed 07:30 PM - 09:00 PM
Studio #01-06, Block 38 Malan Road

In the context of Matthias Sohr’s Studio Session, pianist Christina CL Tan and collaborators perform “Quiet”, a song taken from Leonard Bernstein’s operetta Candide (1956), based on Voltaire’s eponymous novel and character. The story of Candide’s wandering the world and confronting its paradoxes can be read as an allegory of contemporary artistic research. Departing from “Quiet”, featured in his 4-channel-video installation No Doubt You’ll Think (2017) presented on occasion of Residencies OPEN last April, Sohr will discuss the place he is speaking from in regards to his sculptural work and related research. Tan’s remarks on the formal aspects of “Quiet” will stimulate discussion on the ways form and content relate to each other.

The talk will take place in the artist’s studio.
