Schweig und Sprechen: Art Installation
99's, Stables Market (staircase by Gabeto)
An installation and performance created by Noa Segev. The project is part of her final MFA thesis in spatial performance and design at the Architectural Association School of Architecture.
Schweig und Sprechen - meaning silence and speech - is named after Noa's grandparents’ surnames. It will represent the silent and present physical traces of family heritage. The installation will be made out of hundreds of drinking glasses from Noa's great-great-grandfather's former factory in Weisswasser, East Germany, and will emphasize different layers of reality and time via reflections, projections, and sound.
The glasses will serve as the generator of music and also as a filter for the sound and movement the performer will produce. It will show and examine 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.
