stöckerselig have been working with heart sounds for three decades, creating site-specific installations. The interest in this work has never been so great as right now! Do the past months show us how fragile the balance between nature, culture and progress is? Is it because of the new sensitivity to the vulnerability of our systems? Are we moving closer to the question of what we can do and shape as individuals and what we can do with collective power?
For the Roubaix project, stöckerselig are entering into an interdisciplinary collaboration with Basel-based percussionist and composer Fritz Hauser. The artists collect heart sounds from innovative people and create an auditory work together with Fritz Hauser. They bring together heart sounds from people from different fields of work and different living spaces, with the aim of making it possible to experience sensually how each individual is part of our shared reality.
