:: fragile ego’s ::

‘fragile egos’ is an ongoing sound research which started in 2018 about the most vulnerable part of the human animal: the fragility of its ego.
I sonically exploit this most tender layer: The moment the ego gets hurt and how it deals with this pain, feels fear and is in need to self protect and becomes vicious because of all that.
A moment the ego feels unheard or disrespected and with what absurd velocity these emotional reactions can shoot and explode is fascinating to me.
Stories and situations facing panic and the need for validation are the narrative guidelines which I trace.
I investigate fragile egos from a perspective of understanding and a non judgmental observation.

In April 2019 I performed a sound set with live performance, sound objects and projections, Brussels 2019:

sounDing/4-phases of de-knowing is a work developed over the last few years. It is a sound showing, research and theatrical piece inspired by the book “Das Observatorium” from Bettina Wohlfender:

sounDing/4-phases of de-knowing is a project that can be modified into various spaces and context. It is made to be recomposed and is adaptable. If you are interested in hosting the work, please get in touch: arzusounds4u@gmail.com

:: de observanten ::

observing the vastness, the horizons, a volcano. deserted flat-lands and unfolding landscapes become parallel. a place where little leaves or arrives and time trickles thick like treacle. and while listening to the words fading into the space, into its corners, between its shapes, small sounds erupt and light beams run down the walls.

aRzu saglam & Valentin Cernat collaborate on two ephemeral interventions. a sound installation in fog and a voice performance without their bodies present in the space.

4fold, Antwerpen, BE, 2019
