Black fabric, round loudspeakers and a real abstract sound in motion. All this happens on an elongated tabletop. The fabric serves as scenic material and accentuates every single membrane in its causal covering. The exact circular shapes with their different diameters rise from the mass of the fabric and seem to float on it. The sounds use the dimensioning of the table surface in both directions, without beginning and end – here as an overflowing tablecloth and drapery in audible movement. Ulrich Eller (* May 9, 1953 in Leverkusen) is a German artist in the field of installation and sound art.
Since 1978, his artistic works have been concerned with spatial sound and form creations. In 2001, the documenta participant became professor for sound sculpture/sound installation at the Kurt-Schwitters Forum of the FH Hannover. Since 2004 Eller has held a professorship for sound sculpture and sound installation at the HBK Braunschweig. 1987 documenta 8, Kassel. 1994 Die Stillen, Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten, Marl. 1996 Sonambiente, Festival for Hearing and Seeing, Berlin. 1999 Sub Raum, ZKM, Karlsruhe. 1999 The XXth century. A Century of Art in Germany, Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin. 2003 Conceptualisms in Music, Art and Film, Akademie der Künste, Berlin. 2006 Sonambiente, Klang Kunst Sound Art, Berlin.
For Ulrich Eller, sound offers a suitable prerequisite for pointing out the hidden properties of different materials. “I see my works as a draft for a new, unknown reality that reveals itself to anyone who is willing to notice them.
The exhibition runs from September 1 (opening 3 pm) to October 1, 2018.
