Exhibition : "random gymnastics : from XYZ1 to XYZ1(2)"

Michael Otto (Germany), who stayed and holded exhibition at konya2023 in 2008, is traveling around Japan by bicycle now. The purpose is exploring and serching for materials to make concept of artwork.

In end of July, he comes back to konya2023, and hold an exhibition as the report.


The exhibition is a brief analysis of collected material from a journey trough Japan in Summer 2010, that I was doing mainly on my bicycle. Audiorecordings from various places presenting a listenable image of moving from one place to another focusing on charcteristical soundevents as metaphorical forms and the attempt to understand their contents. As an audioinstallation the ephermeral sounds are combined with sculptural ideas i notated in my sketchbook, which works as a container of ideas I open to public viewing.                              Michael Otto
