About the exhibition
Sound appears in this exhibition right from the title, which is a sort of musical tongue-twister, combining a number of Greek words. These are intentionally juxtaposed by the artist without forming any meaning, precisely in order to prevent any pre-established interpretation. Sound is the unifying element that brings together Micol Assaël’s five works in the Shed at HangarBicocca. Visitors are invited to empathically attune to five settings, which are almost like micro-housing units, and to discover their hidden details: in this sense, the physical and, to an even greater degree, mental dimension of listening is a key aspect of the artist’s research.
