Conversation between Four Bodies

(2016)
Sara Rönnbäck och Daniel Slåttnes

This exhibition at Studio 17 is a collaboration between yeast dough, a plant, Sara Rönnbäck and Daniel Slåttnes. The goal was to work together as a group and to understand each other’s perspectives by spending time together, working together, and allowing ourselves to be influenced by each other. Together we wanted to create a work that would touch the audience and demonstrate the importance of silent communication between senses in a dialogue. The result was a series of containers for bodies (or thoughts if you will). The containers are connected by wires, which produce sounds. These sounds can be considered a form of dialogue between the bodies in the room. Visitors can also, through sight, touch, and smell, experience what the participants felt during the creative process.

 

Voice meditation between yeast dough, a plant, Sara Rönnbäck and Daniel Slåttnes. The meditation aims to focus all sounds in one single point. In this point we imagine the emergence of a super-organism. We are no longer separate individuals. The boundaries between you and me, between me and it, are erased.
