The installation Can you hear me? transforms the white cube of Project Room of the CCA Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw into a resonance chamber filled with overlapping scenarios of the physical act of hearing - with your ears, head and entire body, which finally dematerializes as something imaginary, an experience of the listener. The voice acts as a temporary link between remote spaces and moments in time. Sounds created in the artist studio in Chicago through acts of intense hearing and speaking with the use of physical objects are played and re-processed in the gallery space in Warsaw. Voice gets coloured with matter and is shaped by objects, penetrates spaces and architecture, returns, fades away, is attenuated or amplified. It becomes key to move and act according to the hints-instructions; to experience a physical interaction with sounds. The listener becomes another object hit by sound waves, another individual membrane, a living, mobile container for the resonance.
