OR POIESIS (alias Petra Kapš)

OR poiesis is an artist and researcher in the field of sound, sound perception, and poetic performance. She expands words in sonic spheres of the time–space poetry. Despite all the digital dimensions, her central interest is the physical presence of the body. In the broader opus of her artistic practice, she explores the modalities of silences and potentialities that are offered by silent environments in listening to subtle acoustic qualities of substances and voice. OR poiesis will present the KAMIsTONE project. It is an instrument with which the author tunes the frequency fields of rocks, performance space, and all present entities and invites into the sonic substrate of minerals and liquids. Field and material recordings are used in the performance. (photo: Boštjan Lah, Emanat)
