private space in a public time
audio 1min 27sec
in private space in a public time, made from a condensed series of vocal sounds that explore communication through fragmentation, the smallest parts of speech are revealed. the reading, based on Vito Acconci's text Public Space in a Private Time, was recorded and through the process of removing language, leaves a series of stops and starts, a slippery language of faintly recognizable utterances. intimate attention is drawn to the frenetic cadence of voice without language, what Wolowiec refers to as the thread of the voice.
"Redactions are aural in an Audra Wolowiec sound piece that intimately registers the sibilant breaks between words and the material qualities of silence." - Rachel Funari, curator
