24 MICRO INFINITIES
7 September 2019- 8 March 2020
'24 Micro Infinities'
Kunsthalle CCA Andratx, Andratx, Mallorca
24 micro infinities consists of three different elements: a three-dimensional drawing, a photographic series and a soundscape. Inspired by the couple Frédéric Chopin and George Sand, and their stay on the island in Winter 1839/39, Anna Kott’s drawing– a form of ongoing twenty-meter-long waves– contains parts of Chopin’s original musical manuscript.
Her photographic work is inspired by George Sand’s novel “Winter on Mallorca” and features predominantly water and other elements in nature.
The third element includes a special interdisciplinary experience, created through a collaboration between Anna Kott, the Swiss singer Maya Forster and the Polish pianist Katarzyna Wasiak. Forster’s vocals and Wasiak’s experimental piano improvisations build an acoustic space of thought, deeply connected to Anna Kott’s drawings.
These 3 “embodiments“ are placed in one exhibition space, as a three- part counterpoint in the music, each standing for itself while embracing the other, structurally and thematically.
The sound is the core of this exhibition and can be regarded as an audible translation of the relationship between Sand and Chopin. It consists of interlocking strips of material: exceptions to the Preludes themselves; from Sand’s writings, written in Mallorca and the sea itself recorded around the island.
