Brandon LaBelle Künstler, Schriftsteller, Theoretiker, Berlin/Bergen (NO)

Overheard, interrupted: work

The presence of the other, the gap in which the voice appears, the stranger and the friend, togetherness, and standing apart, lonely, and dreaming (or is it remembering?) of what another calls "the poetics of relation" – standing still, sometimes, and then running, knowing and not knowing, the project of the creative body.

Brandon LaBelle is an artist, writer and theorist. His works explore questions of social life, using sound, performance, text and sited constructions. Recent projects include "Civic Center", La Casa Encendida, Madrid, "Sixth Housing Estate", South London Gallery, London, and "Hobo College", Marrakech Biennial parallel project. Also a prolific writer, his books include Lexicon of the Mouth (2014), Diary of an Imaginary Egyptian (2012), Acoustic Territories (2010), and Background Noise: Perspectives on Sound Art (2006).
