Artist Talks Susan Philipsz

Susan Philipsz will speak about her work in conversation with Thomas D. Trummer, Director Kunsthaus Bregenz. The conversation will be conducted in English.

The Scottish artist Susan Philipsz (*1965) explores the sculptural qualities of sound, generally in response to a particular space or environment. Her sound installations are based on recordings of vocal or instrumental music, ranging from pop songs and folk tunes to modern chorales, which she reinterprets and sings unaccompanied in her own, untrained voice. In recent years her work has also begun to
embrace instrumental music, making use of elements such as radio signals, sounds produced on the rims of glasses, wind instruments, as well as different conch shells.

The museum visit is included in the ticket and the exhibition can be viewed in advance.
