In sounds for soloists poet and artist Cia Rinne uses her multilingual voice as an instrument to perform complex, yet minimal compositions in sound and text. By applying intricate cross-lingual wordplays and vocal explorations in language-sound, she reduces wide terrains of philosophical and linguistic complexities to their very essence, often in interplay with their sonic or formal qualities. Her playful yet strictly conceptual pieces are evocative of Dada poetry and Fluxus and in line with the traditions of concrete and sound poetry. sounds for soloists operates freely on the borders of writing, performance and the visual arts where language simultaneously functions as text, sound and image. In the exhibition, the two sound works sans y/eux and sounds for soloists (in collaboration with Sebastian Eskildsen) are presented in close relation to a selection from the two text-based works notes for soloists and serious cerises.

The opening will be accompanied by a set of performances including Cia Rinne, the poet and psychoanalyst Ulf Karl Olov Nilsson/UKON and musician and composer Frisk Frugt who will perform on his self-built flute organ.

Different versions of sounds for soloists along with a performance program have previously been presented at Grimmuseum in Berlin and The Living Art Museum in Reykjavik. The exhibition is realized with support from The Nordic Culture Fund and the Foundation for Swedish Culture in Finland.

Cia Rinne lives and works in Berlin. Her publications include zaroum (2001), The Roma Journeys with Joakim Eskildsen (Steidl 2007) and notes for soloists (OEI Editör 2009).

Solvej Helweg Ovesen lives and works in Berlin and Copenhagen. She curated a.o. Never odd or even – a text spaced exhibition at Museum for Contemporary Art Roskilde, 2012, and currently she is preparing 'Enten-Eller', Kunsthallen Nikolaj, March 2013.
