The Exhibition 16 – 20 000 Hz presents primarily Czech artists working with sound. The show aims to be an invitation to explore a variety of soundscapes. Textual artworks, kinetic and acoustic objects and interventions into the electromagnetic space are connected at the project space as a site-specific installation. This extends into three rooms: the first one is dominated by the multimedia installation of Milan Guštar and monumental murals by the American artist Morgan O’Hara; the second room is occupied by the audiovisual installation of the Swiss artist Martin Andersson juxtaposed by Matěj Smrkovský’s rotating barrels and the last room is dedicated to the site -specific installation by Zimoun. In the interview, curator Daniel Vlček explains a process of collaborative conceptualisation of the show which was developed with the co – curator Miloš Vojtěchovský.
The exhibition presents the works by Czech and international artists including Martin Andersson, Jana Babincová, Milan Guštar, Morgan O’Hara, Tom Kotik, Jan Krtička, Hanne Lippard, Radio Lemurie, Matěj Smrkovský, Jiří Valoch, Tomáš Vaněk, Lenka Vítková and Zimoun.
