[ Deutsche Version ]
In cooperation with the series “FARANG, Thai-Austrian Art and Friendship,” [http://www.machfeld.net/farang] Gertrude Moser-Wagner (project artist, Vienna) and Valerian Maly/Klara Schilliger (performance artists, Bern) have recorded acoustic situations in public space as well as private voice performances in Bangkok and Chiang Mai and developed two performances, "Der Seidenschrei" and "le dernier cri," for Vienna. At the MACHFELD studio live streaming/chat and live drawing with students from the KMITL Institute of Technology, Bangkok, link the participants directly with Thailand. This sound material, the performances, songs, and noises on the one hand and the live chats on the other, will converge to produce a third space, which will make audible what the Thais mean when they say “Silabha,” namely art – arts and crafts: everyday life as an undivided whole. The term comes from Sanskrit and signifies a manner of accomplishing delicate tasks with the necessary care. In this way it also includes social action, now more than ever in the face of the destruction left behind in Thailand by the recent tsunami.
