At the exhibition 'kroko-mobile'
by Jutta Konjer and Manfred Kroboth the work 'moving
sounds' can be seen. The work consists of four model cars driving on
their own, on whose roofs there is each
a loudspeakers fastened. The vehicles move by chance but completely on
their own through the room. Each car is transporting information. These
informations consist of texts, read by different people in different languages.
In synch with he pace of the cars the voices are so much slowed down in
pace that the texts cannot be understood any longer, but instead the sound
pattern of language used comes to the foreground. With the help of the
cars the sounds move through the room, meet occasionally and part again.
Running along on the walls of the exhibition
room there is a collage-like work of drawings, text quotations, found pieces
and photographs, which deals with the question about mobiliy and pace in
relation of automobiles and pedestrians.
