Opening reception: September 6 at 19.00
The rooms are empty and the artwork can exclusively be experienced through headphones. In this sound installation, I ask you to relax and follow the instructions, you will be a participant and perform the piece. Don’t worry – you will be in a safe space. A voice brings you through specific details, a meditative focus, your own body, imaginations and soundscapes.– Therese Frisk
Therese Frisk’s practice brings into focus the diverse landscapes of sensorial experience, specifically through sound. Through acts of listening to vibration, sounds, and echoes, as well as everyday sounds found in her immediate environment, Frisk pays homage to the small moments of attention that combine into a full experience of the world that surrounds us. Her recent work has increasingly dealt with sound, listening, text, and translation, treating conversations and other types of exchange as material for her practice. She builds relations, both actual and virtual, that seek to connect differing perspectives across various forms of experience.
The new work Take Notice by Therese Frisk exhibited at Babel visningsrom for kunst is a site-specific audio guide that brings the listener through the gallery space.
With a BFA from the Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (2015) and a MFA from the Oslo Academy of Fine Art (2017), Therese Frisk now lives and works in Gothenburg, Sweden. The first version upon which Take Notice is based was featured in The World’s Last Exhibition at Lundtoftegade in Copenhagen, Denmark this year. Take Notice is Frisk’s first solo exhibition.
