ECHO

Thilo Frank
2012 / Nordjylland
Hjallerup Hjallerup Algade 42 9320 Hjallerup Danmark
ECHO, 2012

In connection with OUR ART, Thilo Frank has created the artwork ECHO for the town of Hjallerup.

     

It was important for the town to have a work of art that could put into words the engagement and the participation that drives the little town to accomplish great things in the form of the annual Hjallerup market and its rich associational life. Thilo Frank works with installation, sculpture, and photography that involve the public in concrete, physical dialogues. With a focus on perception, light, space, and movement, he interprets physical phenomena and everyday environments in a poetic and playful way.

         

ECHO

In Hjallerup, he has created a sculpture that consists of a circular corridor constructed of a wooden framework rotating on its own axis. The corridor is encircled externally by a series of wooden posts that, depending on your angle, either shield or open up a view into the sculpture’s inner space. Two openings lead into the corridor that unfolds as a dynamic spatial and acoustic passage. When you step into the corridor, which twists and turns in your gaze, you are tempted to move through and around in the corridor. The wooden framework creates a flickering pattern of lines that shifts with your movement. And depending on the direction of your gaze, the corridor is experienced alternately as an open and a private, intimate space.

    

The sound in the sculpture is a special dimension of the work. Footsteps and voices in the corridor and the surroundings are recorded by built-in microphones, while electrodynamic vibration units built into the wooden construction reproduce the sounds in a number of the wooden frameworks and posts. Thus, movement in and around the sculpture activates it as a sort of instrument. The reproduction is controlled by computer and programmed by the artist in such a way that the work creates echoes of its users and the life around the artwork.

     

ECHO is a work of art in which users with their active, physical participation become co-creators of the work. For those who live in the town, it is a free space for experiment and investigation of body and perception and a space for recollection and reflection. For guests in town, a visit to the artwork is a way of encountering the history of the town as it is created at any time by those who participate actively in town life.

About our art

The Danish Arts Foundation and the Danish Arts Council in collaboration with Danmarks Radio (DR) [the Danish Broadcasting Corporation] are launching a major art and media project that will lead to the creation of three new artworks of a high quality three different places in Denmark.

The project is titled ‘Our Art’ and is based on the idea that anyone who is passionate about art can be a part of the process. Ordinary citizens will play a decisive role in the choice of sites, artists, and works. In a close dialogue with three professional art experts designated by the Danish Arts Foundation, ordinary folks will figure out where three new major works of art are to be located in Denmark. Then, the selection of artists and works will take place through a process in which citizens, art experts, the Danish Arts Foundation, and the Danish Arts Council will play a role.

DR will mediate the entire process, while the Danish Arts Foundation and the Danish Arts Council will ensure artistic quality. The Danish Arts Foundation’s Committee for Art in Public Spaces will also contribute the necessary funds to create the three works. ‘Our Art’ is inspired by ’Big Art’, a British project devised by the television station Channel 4. A huge debate was successfully generated in Great Britain that was both popular and artistically anchored.
