Project realized during Wortwedding Art Residency, Berlin 2013
From the beginning of the project the artists focussed on sound in Adam Zagajewskis poetry, as the core to one’s experience of being in a particular place but also of being in one’s own head. In the sculptural audio installation, resembling an upside down megaphone or part of a satellite, one can hear recordings of non-Polish speakers who heard the text “Satellites”, transcripted it and then read out loud their transcription to someone else. Like in a game of Chinese whispers the following person then made a transcript of what they heard. The result is a deconstructed language as “Komunikat” (announcement, message) in correspondence to Adam Zagajewski’s poem of the same name. Communication, especially if one is in a foreign country, becomes a projection surface – one understands only what one is able to free-associate, to imagine, to remember. Language becomes a no man’s land one travels in and out of, like the home land.
