Studio Cézanne. An electro-acoustic sound installation in four parts

19.06.2016 to 16.10.2016
Museum Berggruen

Berlin composer and artist Brigitte Witzenhause (b. 1979) has developed a multi-channel sound installation and video projection for the reopening of the Museum Bergruen extension: 'Studio Cézanne: An electro-acoustic sound installation in four parts'. While the work is intended as an acoustic homage to Paul Cézanne, it also offers a contemporary perspective on Picasso's and Braque's cubism as well as the painting and music of Paul Klee. Witzenhaus' characteristic artistic approach to music and sounds incorporates musique concrète, electro-acoustic music, and site-specific field recordings to create new soundscapes. The central elements of 'Studio Cézanne' are photographs from Cézanne's studio and daily life in Aix-en-Provence in the south of France. The title of the piece alludes to the experimental and evolving nature of the installation: for the artist will present a new sound space every month.
