Fátima Miranda
La piel de la voz Grafic Scores

Opening Mon 17-03 17.00 hrs
Opening hours Tue–Fri 13.00–18.00 hrs, Sat 11.00–14.00 hrs

La piel de la voz shows the impressive graphic notations of Spanish vocal artist Fátima Miranda. From a distance, they look like maps with rivers, mountains and valleys, like labyrinthine plans of mysterious journeys, or abstract painting. Working material with a strictly functional character that nevertheless allows a “purely” visual, aesthetic contemplation. The scores emerge during the process of composition and comprise musical and vocal specifications as well as interpretation details, free staves, drawings, notes, descriptive adjectives for taste or texture, colours, and physical and emotional impressions. The graphic also illustrates gestures, breathing techniques, and the working of the muscles. As a whole, the scores mirror the rich variety of Fátima Miranda’s vocal techniques; at the same time the paper becomes a kind of reflection surface and describes a moving vital process.

Bernhard Leitner

Opening: 31-01-2008
Opening hours: Tue–Fri 10.00–18.00 hrs, Sat 11.00–20.00 hrs, Sun 11.00–18.00 hrs

Made possible by the Verein der Freunde der Nationalgalerie. In cooperation with Tiroler Landesmuseum Ferdinandeum Innsbruck. In connection with MaerzMusik – Festival of contemporary music | Berliner Festspiele.

Already at the end of the 1960s, Austrian architect and artist Bernhard Leitner designed the first sound-space sculpture, or architecture – a sound architecture fed by various audio channels –, in New York, back then, however, without the technical possibilities to actually put them into practice. Leitner’s interest in space and architecture, in classical and modern music, in modern dance and the technical instruments of 20th Century art provided the matrix for the development of the concept.
The exhibition designed for the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart will exclusively focus on sketches, notes, models and photographs related to his early and merely theoretical experimentations. First sound-space explorations from 1971 to 1973, now actually realised with the aid of a relay circuit operated with a crank handle and a punch-tape programming device, will be at the heart of the White Cube exhibition - not a historical reconstruction but the first sound-space sculpture realised with the aid of modern control devices in the history of visual art.
