«Somewhere deep in the half-lit rainforest, two men are engaged in a peculiar dance.»
The work was featured in Phonebox, a series of 12 exhibitions.
Phonebox is located in a former phone cabin, which will serve as an intimate exhibition space with room for only one person at a time.
Behrens’ new work Apparatus is heard from two distinct sources at once. While the public is invited to listen to the sound over the headphones, a different layer of sound is at the same time transmitted over speakers installed in the small room. This technique creates a sonic and spatial dynamic where different layers blend and overlap. The work explores parallel perception, multiple viewpoints, displacement and asymmetric sound spatialization.
