Regionale 19: Sound Embodied
House of Electronic Arts Basel
– 3 February 2019
The art exhibition Regionale, held annually in the tri-border region, is in its 19th year. The House of Electronic Arts in Basle showcases works under the title “Sound Embodied”.
The Regionale is a major event. Ten cities in the tri-border region between north-western Switzerland, southern Baden and Alsace showcase the works of 180 artists from the region at 18 locations. The exhibition series thus offers young artists the opportunity of presenting their current projects to a broad public.
As one of the locations, this year, the House of Electronic Arts is focussing its programme on sound. Curator Boris Magrini brings together the works of 17 artists who deal with the interaction of sound and physical space in multimedia installations. Some works explore how sound itself can become a visual design element, while others make audible the sounds hidden in physical objects. They all expand the spectrum of the perceptual possibilities of sound. The exhibition is open until 3 February 2019.
