With “Simultaneous Translation”, Katarzyna Krakowiak will realize a site specific investigation into the acoustics of the church at 360 Church street where RU is located. Over the course of the evening she will perform a reading of the geometry of the space that will divulge how sound travels and voices are contained by the walls. The audience will be privy to the unfolding of a sound narrative and how her method of reading invisible voices references the building in its entirety although her intervention only takes place in a section of it. A simultaneous translation of the soundscape will take place.
Katarzyna Krakowiak (b. 1980) explores sculpture and architecture with the use of various media, notably sound. Her solo exhibition for the Polish Pavilion at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition—La Biennale di Venezia, Making the walls quake as if they were dilating with the secret knowledge of great powers (Venice, 2012), received a Special Mention. Other significant exhibitions include Who Owns the Air?, Galeria Foksal (Warsaw, 2011), and Game and Theory, South London Gallery (London, 2009).
Katarzyna Krakowiak’s residency is organized in association with A-I-R Laboratory/Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw, Poland with support of the Polish Cultural Institute, New York.
