You are cordially invited to the opening of Acts of Orientation on Saturday, 4 June from 5 – 7 pm. Kerstin Ergenzinger’s (DE, 1975) solo exhibition Acts of Orientation at A Tale of a Tub puts our understanding of our environment and our perceived place in it to the test. Central to the exhibition is Ergenzinger’s most recent sound installation Navigating Noise: a poetic exploration of how to orient oneself in space with the aid of sound. The installation is an experimental, interactive sonic architecture through which visitors move freely, navigating its sounds and noises. This leads to subtle shifts in the experience of space. Navigating Noise is a metaphorical space, linking physical experience with abstract notions of a world increasingly determined by data flows and electronic pathways.

In a similar way the light installation Raumtaster, as well as a series of intimate drawings, renegotiate questions about the relationship between body, sound and space and the way orientation and knowledge take shape. The exhibition is part of the interdisciplinary research project Acts of Orientation by artist Kerstin Ergenzinger, physicist Thomas Laepple, and curator Nathanja van Dijk. In collaboration with the Humboldt University and the Schering Stiftung (Berlin) they investigate forms of orientation in our technologized world from spatial-physical, natural science and humanities perspectives.
