Begüm Erciyas
Voicing Pieces

The protagonist in ›Voicing Pieces‹, is the visitor’s own voice. In the intimacy of an isolated sound booth, guided by a simple score, the act of speaking and simultaneously hearing one’s own voice turns into a theatrical and choreographic experience, sculpted anew with each individual interpretation of the score. The voice becomes a place for action, a spectacle or a surprise.  Does one’s own voice always sound unauthentic and strange? Who is speaking when one’s own voice speaks? Rather than recognizing oneself in the stranger, ›Voicing Pieces‹, is an invitation to recognize the stranger in oneself.
