Pauline Kerleroux & Adéla Svobodová

Here and Now


A piece of work is not finished until the audience come to it and add their own interpretation.
– David Bowie, BBC Newsnight interview (1999)

By its very nature an exhibition is meant to be shown to the public and trigger reactions.

Here and Now is a simple sound installation that aims to complete the creative loop, between the exhibitor and their public, within the exhibition space. Visitors are invited to speak up – into a recording device – while they experience the exhibition. Their opinions and thoughts are then broadcast through a directional speaker, installed in a suitable spot within the space, for the duration of the exhibition. The audience’s responses and interpretations therefore become an integral part of the exhibition; an exhibit in themselves. In that sense Here and Now reflects authentic reactions felt on the spot, at this particular place and particular time.

This event is a part of the Off Programme – open space devoted to workshops, interventions, and other presentations and activities related to graphic design. The authors are solely responsible for the nature of this event. The program is subject to change.
