MEDIUM (Interspecifics) + CESTY PAPRSKU (Jiří Y Suchánek)

Wednesday 29 May 2024 will be dedicated to the accompanying programme of the exhibition Beyond the Sound, specifically to an audiovisual performance. During the evening, the Mexican group Interspecifics, represented in Brno by Leslie García, and Jiří Y Suchánek, who is also the curator of the exhibition, will perform.


The international exhibition Beyond the Sound presents a contemporary approach to the specific and lively artistic field of sound art. Sound is presented not as an independent aesthetic form, but as a medium used to explore and reveal phenomena that are often unrecognisable to the eye. Each of the selected artists represents a different approach in the use of sound as a communication medium. The exhibition explores the ways in which sounds are created, as well as a reading of the semantic qualities that the signal chain entails. From sonifications of planetary phenomena such as fluctuations of telluric currents between the earth and the ionosphere (Ganchrow), Schumann resonances (::vtol::) or changes in the electrical potentials of cells (Interspecifics), to masterfully crafted field recordings of soundscapes at the borders of melting glaciers (Winderen), acoustic phenomena in liquid analogue computers or the gradual destruction of data memory by UV light (Moser), to the inaudible ultrasound causing the implosion of air micro-bubbles (Domnitch + Gelfand) - all the selected installations and objects are connected by their interest in innovatively exploring the world through sound and giving an ephemeral but important message about its intricate complexity and fragility of relationships. At the same time, the selected artists are also attentive to visual expression and object form and understand their work as complex, interdisciplinary and often technologically quite pioneering.

The exhibition is a part of the multidisciplinary FAUN festival realized by Zahradami soutoku, z.s., the concert part of which will take place from 12 to 13 April 2024 at the Husa na provázku Theatre and the Brno House of Arts. More information at

The project is supported by the EEA and Norway Grants, 2014 - 2021. The project partners are FaVU BUT, Norsk Jazzforum and Ponava Cafe & Radio.

The exhibition is held under the auspices of Mr. Martin Baxa, the Minister of Culture, and Mrs. Markéta Vaňková, the Mayor of the City of Brno.
