Post Millennium Flower Field

Künstlerhaus Bregenz • 2020

audio 6h30’ • 5 channel • fake flowers in sticky mass 190×190 cm • 5 speakers hanging from the ceiling

The visual and auditory complexity of Post Millennium Flower Field is nowhere near the same as a natural flower meadow. Nevertheless, this ecosystem is the starting point in Zehnder’s work. Artificial flowers set in sticky material are accompanied by the familiar sounds of the plants’ natural habitat. The loudspeakers hanging from the ceiling project the organic soundscape into the sterile environment of the presentation platform, creating a constant oscillation between convergent and divergent moments of audio recording and artistic intervention.
