Tiny OyoUnity @ Oyoun | Pop-Up Event: Alejandra Alarcón Bautista – Dreaming of Water
9. September 16:00 - 20:00
Tiny Oyounity presents:
'Dreaming of Water' - an interactive sound installation by Alejandra Alarcón Bautista
From late August to mid-October, our Tiny House travels through Berlin districts, engaging interactively with the local community and partners at cultural venues and institutions. Through a diverse range of workshops, the aim is to connect decolonial knowledge and artistic practices with marketing, design, and knowledge dissemination.
Second stop: @ Oyoun (Lucy-Lameck-Str. 32, 12049 Berlin)
Due to the war and energy shortages, Germany has opted to increase coal importation from Colombia to improve its energy supply. El Cerrejón is the largest open-pit coal mine in South America, located in Colombia, where all the coal for Germany is exploited. Unfortunately, the extraction of this raw material has not only severely decimated the local people displacing them from their land and their human rights, but also displacing entire rivers and polluted water sources in one of the most arid areas of the country. What is the actual price of Germany's industrial progress?
Dreaming of Water is a small interactive sound installation of coal stones connected to a Midi sound system. As the artist and the audience interact with the rocks, different water sounds will resonate to create a soundscape referring to the rivers and natural resources now destroyed by coal mining. It is a confrontation to discuss under which conditions Berlin and Germany manage to perpetuate their development.
Tickets: Free admission
Alejandra Alarcón Bautista
Alejandra was born and raised in Bogotá, where she got a degree in fine arts at Universidad Nacional de Colombia. In 2013 she won a DAAD-ISAP exchange scholarship and studied Arts & New Media at the Kunsthochschule für Medien-köln. Alejandra moved to Germany in 2017 to continue her studies in scenography and exhibition design at TU Berlin, where she obtained an M.A. degree. She was a scholarship holder of Sentasverwaltung für Kultur und Europa between 2020/22 and has collaborated with other artists and musicians in many art festivals and independent projects around Germany.
Her artwork focuses on the design of physical and virtual places using different media. How is the space built? With this question emerged her interest in developing immersive narratives and stimulating constructive criticism. The scenographic element is significant in her work because it allows her to integrate all media: Video, sound, color, light, and various objects. Therefore, Alejandra's artwork ranges from scenographic installations to 3D soundscapes.
The project Tiny OyoUnity is part of the initiative DRAUSSENSTADT funded by the Berliner Projektfonds Urbane Praxis and the Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Gesellschaftlichen Zusammenhalt.
