08 May – Exhibiting the Percussive Hunter
Akbank Sanat hosts a group exhibition curated by Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk, dedicated to the examination of processes of mattering and sonic resonance contained by and inherent to material substances. The exhibition title comes from the technique of hunting by sound, such as the tapping motion of the woodpecker. As a metaphor, the artists in this show are also hunting with sound, or rather frequency and vibration in a broader sense. They aim to sound the hidden currents that permit artists to grasp the archetypal forms that underpin our daily realities. The exhibition can be seen until 16 May.
