Sound installation: LED lamps, mirrors, loudspeakers, sound and electric cables, audio DVD, multichannel sound.
The dining room at Santa Joana Convent is a singular space in the architectural complex of the Museum of Aveiro. Contrasting with other richly decorated areas, this is an austere room, covered in tiles and equipped with five long tables. It is a utilitarian space that was not only used for bodily nourishment but also to spiritual sustenance: to learning, communication, socialisation. (Re)Verso/Flexo explores the architecture, acoustics, and the historical resonances of this space as supports for a sound installation.
May 2018, Dining Room, Santa Joana Convent, Aveiro.
