ROOM 555 - Soundinstallation (Ira Hadžić & Harm Coordes)
The room- and sound installation Room 555 preserves and abstracts the preceding narrative performance of the same name. In a modified setting, the visitors will experience traces of the opening ceremony that now - as relics - encourage interpretation and contribution. The room installation breaks the former distance between performers and visitors.
Atelier ¾, Reichenberger Str. 155, 2. Hinterhof, Kreuzberg, 10999 Berlin
Installation & Costume: Harm Coordes
Text & Sound: Ira Hadžić
Room 555 is a collaboration between Ira Hadžić (writer) and Harm Coordes (fashion designer). The foundation for IH´s work is her book Evacuation of Nada, 2013. Over longer periods, she elaborated the narrative fragments initiated within the book into self-standing stories. Thematically and aesthetically, she is constantly researching the exchange and conjunction of different possibilities of expression, in case of the malfunction of those familiar. Within the project Church of the Hand, HC is investigating the possibilities of reaching down to the human being’s fundamental desires by the use of participatory performances and multisensory room installations. The work questions current marketing strategies, fashion show rituals and pursues the question of “Where do we find faith?“ at the same time.
