‘A Moment to Land’ exhibition and performance – HoME

‘Would you tell us what home means to you?’ – Answers to this question were collected by 12 artists from different genres, art disciplines and countries in Austria, Hungary, Serbia and Spain. Three phases of the collective project HoME can now be seen together.

HoME installation
An interactive mobile studio and the surrounding space where individual and private narratives are sonified and played in real time (through sonification). Here, visitors can be alone and reflect on the true nature of their home, while others around the installation listen to the sounds created by the processes inside.

HoME exhibition
A collection of seven audiovisual works of different types created by the participating artists based on their experiences during the journey with the installation.

A Moment to Land
A music theatre performance by participating artists that draws on responses and stories collected during the research trip. Instrumental and electro-acoustic music makers, visual composers, dancers, performers, actors and directors work together to give an insight into what home can mean to them.

HoME is a collaboration of twelve artists created by new music organizations and their artistic directors from four countries (Austria, Hungary, Spain and Serbia). The artists include electronic and instrumental composers, performers, dancers, and theater creators. They undertook to learn more about the concept of home, and thus about their communities in a narrower and broader sense, and to create various collective art works from the impressions and knowledge thus collected. The originator and artistic director of the project is Samu Gryllus, whose starting point was the knowledge of the community’s memory, the idea of some kind of compatibility between individual and collective narratives. The twelve participating artists were selected through an open call for tenders.
