Program: Sound Installation and Performance
Status: collaboration with Jelena Pavlovic
Location: Lisbon, Portugal
THE-WATER-BODIES is a site-specific sound work, inspired by the poem found next to the fountain, dedicated to light and water. Our priority was to enable the memory of Alfama’s inhabitants’ relations with water that their ancestors for centuries used to have.We focus the work around the fountain in the Judiaria Street, treating the space as an empty (“void”), using the geometry of it. Three sound passages that lead to the fountain will enable the the waters’ rhythmic, absent character to penetrate the body. We will invite the public to spend a night by the fountain, and absorb the aquatic rhythms.
