About the exhibition

Murmur in Sector Zero was developed specifically for the
Schafhof. Lewandowsky transforms the vaulted ceiling into an
abandoned ark. To this effect, he combines a sculptural work
with a sound installation of language, paralanguage, and
sound-based elements. His ark, however, transports people
and not animals. The artist writes: “The military transporter is
empty. The people are gone. They have left behind something
that one could describe as the acoustic remnants of the
exhausting activity of enduring. In a place where animals once
demonstrated the practice of patience, this constructed model
situation becomes a contemplative observation of waiting.
For on our journey to the inner realm of emptiness, we come
closest to the dimension of the cosmic.”

About the artist

Via Lewandowsky, born 1963 in Dresden, studied at the Dresden
Academy of Fine Arts from 1982 to 1987. As part of the avantgarde
group Autoperforationsartisten, between 1985 and 1989
he there engaged in subversive performances that ran counter
to the official art scene of East Germany. In 1989 he left the
country shortly before the fall of the Wall and moved to West
Berlin. After extended stays abroad, in New York, Rome, Peking,
and Canada, among other places, he now lives in Berlin. He has
received numerous awards for his work.
