How Does The Smell Of Oranges Sound Like? (Gretchen Blegen, Christina Ertl-Shirley)
Throughout their series How Does The Smell Of Oranges Sound Like?, Gretchen Blegen and Christina Ertl-Shirley deal with oranges. They use the fruit as a source for experimental sound production, and investigate its cultural history. The artists show the results of their ongoing research in individual multi-disciplinary “orange chapters” using abstract storytelling and experimental sound.

Gretchen Blegen works as an interdisciplinary artist with an interest in sound, text and space. The focus of her work is the translation of space through light. She understands light as a means to substantiate a space, and highlight its sound, motion and structure. The sound artist Christina Ertl-Shirley creates radio pieces, sound installation and composition and puts sound and storytelling into a diaolog.
Vierte Welt was founded in 2010 in Zentrum Kreuzberg upon the initiative of Lubricat. Vierte Welt is a space in which artists, specialists, activists and the audience can meet at eye level to reach understandings and achieve exchanges. Vierte Welt has developed into being an open space of possibility within which we assert, in opposition to the short-term exploitation pressure of the market, a situation of permanence and continuity in the artistic work. Far from the focus on a singular aesthetic event (project) and from being confined to one community, we work to change the perspective of the practice of artistic production and presentation in which we seek to think aesthetic and artistic/political positions anew.
