sound installation
Rudolf Wakolbinger [AT]

supported by Forum Austriaco di Cultura Roma, ARTEX Museum Services

The artistic work of Wakolbinger falls within the field of the experience of Sound Art concerning the recreation of digital sound stimuli. This experience is no longer focused on a concrete object but dispersed and in its own way reconcentrated in a space of “sound setting”. The “creative canvas” is no longer made only of the visible but also of elements entering a new artistic palette that conveys a message and an answer both of a neuro-aesthetic nature. In the matter of Wakolbinger's work, it should also be considered that it speaks to several interlocutors and has an expressive, theological, philosophical or educational purpose depending on the place of performance. Both in performative art and in the acoustic one the common thread lies in the creative role of the spectator as a critical interlocutor, active part of the artistic process, a sort of “performing spectator”. Indeed, Andrea Lissoni has declared that sound art is based on «a mysterious form of dialogue». (Egle Radogna)
