Three Sounds


Artist: Steve Bates

Three Sounds is part of Black Seas, a larger body of sound, moving image, installation, performance works which began in 2015. Black Seas is a project about listening to noise through desire, agency and encounter.

Anchored in historical and contemporary experiences of auditory hallucination, Three Sounds is inspired by the breadth and depth of this sound world in both pathological and non-pathological instances and the continuum between these two extremes. The project is influenced by multiple sources from literature to film, visual art, music, sound and media art as well as cognitive science, psychiatry, anthropology, religious studies, philosophy and shared stories.

Three Sounds revolves around three non-linear video and sound stories: Noise, Voices and Music. The three stories unfold through three images, one after the other, supported by details that form reminiscent links between them.

Images so that we may hear; sounds so that we may see. A willingness to refine our understanding of the world, to extract from the unique relationship of sound and image a meaning that transcends our initial perception of the whole. As though the incompleteness brought forth by the absence, censorship or obliteration of one sense contributes to the making of sense. As though the essence of the matter resides in unfulfilled expectations, or in the avowed lacunae of several of the artworks brought together here.

Watch, listen more closely to catalyze a sharper form of consciousness and an enduring acuity that permit an ever-clearer reading of things and of this world, which, for the first time in history, is called upon to face its precariousness through an incessantly mediated reality.

It is at the crossroads of personal history and collective memory that Myriam Jacob-Allard’s work lingers. These take form in the exhibition around two narratives: a popular song and a family story. The title of the exhibition and the publication, T’envoler, is borrowed from a country song, a musical genre with a particular resonance for the artist’s family.

In D'un discours qui ne serait pas du semblant / Actors, Networks, Theories, Vincent Bonin explores the notion of deferred receptions of theories and art through language, context and translations. The book explores the gap between the publication of a text in one language and that of its translation, or between the inaugural presentation of an artwork in one context and its subsequent display.
