Multilayered project by Ksenija Čerče will focus on setting up a complex situation in order to enable development of sound events. Within the project creation process the author was above all interested in the form of the panopticon and its transformation into an audio experience. Panopticon is a “POLY-DISPLAY” form enabling the observer to see everything without being seen. Beside the political idea of the form the author focused on its radical transformation into a sonoric experience: an observer who can hear everything without being noticed.

By entering into an audio archeology the project is based on the research of the phenomena such as audio based media, data holders as well as transfer of things from the past into the present, where in a different time perspective items become objects and time vectors, representing the phenomena of INCONSTANT EFFECTS of the audio archeology (analog and digital media). Beyond the political history the media are at the same time holders of the conceptual and technological immanence of the interacting dialog.

Ksenija Čerče gained her BA (1999) and MA (2002) in Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana. Between 1988 and 1996 she completed her studies of Textile and Fashion Design at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering, University of Ljubljana. In 2003 she received the Fulbright Scholarship for study in the USA, where she attained her masters in Video and Sound Art (under Liz Phillips) at Purchase College State University of New York. In her projects Ksenija Čerče researches basic themes like phenomena of the perception, experiencing visual structures and acoustic motion and first of all the physical fleetness of acoustics and light in contemporary media.

Her technologically dependent and media multilayered projects are set up in specific environments. At the moment she is creative in the field of audio and video art as well as painting.

The project is organized in cooperation with Cultural Centre Pekarna.
