Simona Barbera

Scroll for English

"There is this place where time stops, holds up. Walking across the fading streets, in this year of dispersed rerouted empty archives, it seems like we've all given up too easily.

Vampire youth light up corners, lingering at the edge of concrete benches and unbreakable glass windows, escaping small block of flats. Gyms shut down while in the background, widening lights of corporate shopping malls flicker in reflection all night and all day.  

Under the cover of dawn, the intersecting multitude is not a meeting place but a disjointed lot – Also the rhizome of the unsaid and of dusk lines, all counterpoints to the well-lit center halls. Broken neon lights hanging loose, underscore blinking to the restlessness of life itself.

In a fog, in downpour, or a muted morning. Still, time looking for a single point of failure.

A gust blows past city tunnels under outskirt borders, queues split sideways, where resistance always fills the breeze breathing with the impossible.  

Here is where I felt something different. Something unwritten as the sound of the hidden city made barely visible. Surfaces that stretch out in un-gridded noise, a dispersion of waves, particles, and broken curves."

Between the translucent and the blue er en lydinstallasjon som fokuserer på en auditiv nærhet mellom subjektet og det romlige. Lydverket tar sitt råmateriale fra minimale kilder; ulinjære fortellinger og kroppsbevegelser i urbane infrastrukturer etter en nedstengning.

Simona Barbera er en italiensk kunstner som primært jobber med installasjoner som inkluderer lyd og multimediaobjekter. Hennes senere kunstneriske praksis fokuserer på soniske skulpturer integrert i installasjoner og som reagerer på spesifikke romlige sammenhenger. Ved å utforske følsomhetene i urbane rom, stammer de fleste av hennes verk fra det akustiske miljøet som senere utvikler seg til abstrakte soniske teksturer av lagdelte former.

Stemme og bevegelser: Noam Julian Vannucci, Tania Hinz.

Between the translucent and the blue is a sound installation that focuses on auditory proximity between subject and space, stemming from an aural-architectural experience of 3D spatial sound and Ambisonic recordings.  

The sound piece unfolds recordings based on minimal sources like non-linear narratives and body movements within detached surfaces around urban infrastructures.

Simona Barbera is an Italian artist working primarily with installations that incorporate sound and multimedia objects. Her latest artistic practice focuses on sonic sculptures conceived as an integral part of installations responding to specific contemporary spatial contexts. By exploring sensibilities of urban spaces under changes and pressures, most of her works stem from the acoustic environment that later develops into abstract sonic textures of layered forms.
