THE REFLECTION ABOUT SILENCE IN URBAN SPACES, AS WELL AS URBANITY AS AN URBAN SOUND SPACE, IS EXPLORED VISUALLY THROUGH MOVING IMAGES, SOUND AND PHOTOGRAPHS IN THE FOLLOWING.

THE TITLE "CONFUSE URBANITY" IS REVEALED THROUGH THE EXPERIENCED SOUND SPACES AND INDIVIDUAL ASSOCIATIONS OF "URBAN SILENCE" AS A COHERENT SERIES OF IMAGE AND SOUND, ACCORDING TO WHICH IT IS PERCEIVED AS A MULTI-FACETED, NOISY, MOVING, SIMPLE AND SELF-CONTAINED, AS WELL AS CALM, SILENT AND COLOURFUL.

FIRSTLY, THE WORDS "URBAN" AND "SILENCE" WILL BE CONSIDERED SEPARATELY FROM EACH OTHER IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO PERCEIVE AND DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN THE TWO WORDS AS ONE MEANING TOGETHER AS "URBAN SILENCE" WITHIN THE SPACE.

IN ITS CONFUSION OF CONTRADICTIONS, "URBAN SILENCE" IS SHOWN AS A CONTRIBUTION TO EVERYDAY LIFE IN THE CITY OF BERLIN.

URBANITY IS INTERPRETED AS LOUD, COLOURFUL, ENDLESS, MOVING AND CHAOTIC - SILENCE AS RESTING IN ITSELF, IN INTERCEPTED CUT OUTS OF CONVERSATIONS IN ITS DISTANCEAS WELL AS HARMONIOUS WITH QUIET AND CALM OBJECTS AND COLOURS.

NEVERTHELESS, THEY OVERLAP INTERNALLY IN THEIR OPPOSITENESS, URBANITY CAN BE SILENT, JUST AS SILENCE CAN BE URBAN.

IN ORDER TO PLEASE CONFUSION IN ITS CONTRASTS, SURPRISING HUMOUR AND BLURRED CHAOS ARE NEEDED, FOR THE PURPOSE AND BEAUTY OF URBANITY.

Biography

Adrianne Gojak uses painting, photography, installation, film and mixed media formats in her multidisciplinary practice, to explore the relationship between nature, perceptual levels, dream worlds, the psyche and movement in all its forms. Her works are based on the connection between art and humans, the processing of emotions and thoughts through abstraction and the play of perspective, reflection aswell as contrasts. Playful, thought-provoking and introspective, Adrianne Gojak interprets the contemporary on large formats, with a subject that everyone has to deal with at least once in their lives. Critical, colorful and authentically honest.
