private space in a public time
audio installation (2 min loop) in connector tunnel at MASS MoCA
12-panel text score (24 x 17 inches each) paint and screenprint on wall
2016-2017

private space in a public time is made from a condensed series of vocal sounds that explore communication through fragmentation. the reading, based on Vito Acconci's text Public Space in a Private Time, was recorded and edited, leaving a series of stops and starts, a slippery language of faintly recognizable utterances.

originally commissioned for Art in General's A/V Elevator Project Space, 2010, exhibited in Eraser at Magnan-Metz, 2011, and featured in BOMB Magazine, Fall Issue 2016.

Redactions are aural in Audra Wolowiec's sound piece that intimately registers the sibilant breaks between words and the material qualities of silence.
