IDEA: Phantoms of sound and objects.
WHAT: Marc Behrens presents his solo exhibition ‘Phantoms’ as an interconnected sound and object array. The exhibition focuses mainly on the sound installations ‘Unit’, ‘The Unknown’ and ‘White Phantoms’ and integrates them with a number of smaller sculptural works. He materializes his own phantoms and tells their stories through combinations of sound and physical objects. All those materials, mostly organic but transmutable, all those sound objects are vibrations, reshaped, redefined. Like phantoms not of the artist’s body, but of the artist’s ideas and spiritual acts.
WHY: Phantoms are the placeholders for induced memories, imaginary places, ideas, entities or objects that you can only relate to by way of someone else’s accounts, since you have not been there, since you have not been with them.
