Dominique Koch. Moving Knots Across Strings

Press kit

Sound, glass sculptures and hybrid objects make up the multimedia installation in Palazzo Reali by Dominique Koch, winner of the Bally Artist Award 2022.
The exhibition, on from 10 September to 2 October, is part of the Award established by the Bally Foundation in collaboration with Museo d’arte della Svizzera italiana, Lugano with the aim of promoting the world of art and creativity in Ticino and Switzerland.
The installation created by Koch for MASI Lugano immerses visitors in an imaginary dimension: an "ecosystem in dialogue" which brings humans into contact with both nature and technology. The works highlight Koch’s interdisciplinary approach, which often ventures into fields of scientific research. The artist uses special recordings to render audible environmental vibrations otherwise not perceptible to the human ear, sometimes transforming these vibrations into physical objects too.
