Quiet Noise

Fujui Wang's Solo Exhibition and Sound Art Project

"Quiet Noise", a solo exhibition by the pioneer of sound arts, Fujui Wang. Quiet Noise is in an existent but opaque state, a form of exploration of the sporadic connections between the urban sounds and the space. 2 sound installations and 6 prints will be shown in the space.

The discoveries regarding the using of electricity precipitated the Second Industrial Revolution. Electricity ran through cities like blood in the veins in human bodies, converting dashing, invisible electromagnetic waves into sounds through coils and shaping electromagnetic soundscapes of the cities. There is an interactive installation in the main exhibition space which deconstructed the recorded electromagnetic soundscape. Audiences need to hold a special instrument and walk into the electrified aluminum frames hung from the ceiling, a metaphor of buildings in the city, in order to hear the electromagnetic soundscapes Fujui Wang had recorded.

In the other installation, audiences need to stand in between a custom made transparent speakers in order to listen the sounds Fujui had recorded in the MRT cars of the same line for 100 days: Continuous, boisterous, blurry, repetitious, mechanical sounds which we seem to hear infinite sounds without really hearing anything. Form the audio state of a certain urban space, noisy as it might be, it is also tranquil.
