Pleased to share that Samson Young is presenting in the exhibition ‘Sound and Silence’ at Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany. This exhibition focuses on the theme of stillness and silence in the field of contemporary art. The presentation has been realized in view of the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven and is based on the composer’s progressing deafness as a starting point for discussing the question of the relation between sound and silence, the productive and at the same time destructive force of stillness and the impossibility of complete silence. On view is Young’s ‘Muted Situation #1: Muted String Quartet’ (2014).
