A Flock of Stones | Kunsthal Aarhus



improvised location-specific electronic performance


A Flock of Stones is an electronic performance by Zeno van den Broek, incorporated into Nigerian artist Otobong Nkanga’s installation The Encounter That Took a Part of Me, exhibited at Kunsthal Aarhus. Nkanga has invited Zeno van den Broek, along with other performers, to respond to the idea of the ‘taste of a stone’. Diving into this theme, Zeno van den Broek’s performance explores the auditive qualities of stones in an electronic improvisation. The principle of the fracturing of a stone into multiple smaller stones is brought into musical movements and phrases, interacting with each other and the visitors present in the environment created by Nkanga.
