SAAB SCULPTURES / PAESAGGIMAGINATI

 

The Saab Sculptures is a series of works placing the Saab 900 car in different contexts, thus questioning, transforming, pimping public/private space. The current etappe in this research consists of a sculptural/sonorous exploration, translated in a mobile soundsystem carrying 12 Toa horn-speakers, mounted on the car’s roof. The sculpture will travel through different landscapes and new soundpieces will be made sur mesure each time. Saab-sculpted voyages, resonating with the acoustics of its surroundings, focusing on the physicality of the sound, interacting with the changing landscape.

 

Amber Meulenijzer lives and works in Brussels. With a background in sound and visual arts, she tries to research the tension between these fields. Playing with presence/non presence, the role of silence and the spectator are investigated. Where do decor, installation and soundscape meet?  What does the eye/the body need in order to listen better? Who speaks, who listens?  SAAB SCULPTURES / PAESAGGIMAGINATI will be the first project translating this research into public space.
