Schweig und Sprechen
Site-specific sound Installation and Performance

”Schweig und Sprechen”, meaning silence and speech, presents the silent and echoed physical traces of family heritage.
 The installation is made out of hundreds of drinking glasses from Noa's great-great-grandfather's Joseph Schweig former factory in Weisswasser, East Germany.
It emphasizes different layers of reality and time via reflections, projections, and sound.
The glasses serve as the generator of music and also as a filter for the sound and movement the performers produce. It shows and examines the relations between silence and speech, history and future, memory and heritage, and in that manner tell, in the most impersonal way, a personal story.
The project is my final MFA thesis in spatial performance and design at the Architectural Association School of Architecture.
Exhibited and performed at Camden Market on the 27th and 28th of February 2019.
