Exhibition Voices of the Mediterranean

29.01.2015 to 27.09.2015
  • Veus de la Mediterrània

The voice is memory and oblivion. It is the person and their gestures. It is the mediator for social life and the creator of identities. But voice is also a subtle skill, ephemeral and delicate. Each culture has many voices and each person has many ways of using it: speaking, talking, singing… On the shores and islands of the Mediterranean, a multitude of voices ring out to build every situation, each moment of our daily life, and each emotion that we share with one another. The borders of expression are hard to chart precisely. Speaking, singing, shouting and crying make up a continuous flow of sound nuances that goes beyond languages and accents. The variety of sounds is indeed remarkable, but in each place, however far away, we find the memory of voices that are known to us. Let yourself be carried away by the many different timbres, intonations, accents and rhythms.
