Like their earlier collaborations, this one, too, is about incorporating elements, structures and atmospheres from the existing milieu. They first break down and analyse the prevailing situation, the site and its constituents in order to subsequently assemble a new structure from these parts, one that follows new rules. Sound is an important element in their installations, and for IN A MYTH OF THE ACTUAL they have made sound into a tactile material by installing modules that vibrate and resonate in response to visitors. For the first time, the artists will be monitoring and using their work online. During the course of the exhibition, Neumann will log in and use the sound installation and the room as an instrument in his live performances elsewhere in the world.
