‘Hear Here’ takes you on a trip through sound art in Leuven. Fourteen resoun­ding art­works are spread out across ten heri­ta­ge loca­ti­ons. Every instal­la­ti­on enga­ges in an acous­tic dia­lo­gue with the archi­tec­tu­re and the sur­roun­dings. The solid brick walls of the KADOC cha­pel reso­na­te dif­fe­rent­ly than the Botanical Garden in full spring. This rela­ti­on bet­ween sound, acous­tics and per­cep­ti­on is a key ele­ment in sound art. From buz­z­ing bees to dro­ning organ pipes, from the search for silen­ce to noi­se dis­tur­ban­ce in the North Sea. Get rea­dy for a free dis­co­ve­ry rou­te for all ages and expe­rien­ce Leuven’s hid­den heri­ta­ge with dif­fe­rent eyes and ears.

 

Maika Garnica

Antwerp-based artist Maika Garnica creates ceramic objects that are both sculptures and instruments. For Hear Here, she joins forces with artist Nico Dockx. The lengths of their body parts are measured and translated into shapes in clay, which in turn serve as sound objects. Especially for the occasion, Garnica and Dockx will invite some guests to perform (lecture) performances with these instruments.

 

Vica Pacheco

Vica Pacheco was born in Oaxaca, southern Mexico, but lives and works in Brussels. In her versatile practice she combines electroacoustic music, sound art, video animation and sculpture.Her performance Animacy Or A Breath Manifest emerged from an investigation into pre-Columbian instruments made from ceramics. This resulted in a series of beautiful flute-sculptures that open up a totally new sound universe, in which breathing, organicity and energy are central. In doing so, Pacheco builds on ancient musical and ritual practices as well as mythological meanings.
