from V-A-C website:

V-A-C Live is proud to launch its future Moscow home GES-2, with GEOMETRY OF NOW, an investigation of sound through site-specific interventions in the space of the former GES-2 power station.

The project will feature a series of installations reclaiming the raw structures within GES-2, an interdisciplinary lecture and workshop programme developed around topics in sound art studies and performances that reconfigure its architectural space.

“For me the most interesting aspect of the space, an imposingly beautiful pre-Soviet power station, is its temporal physiognomy: a site of discontinuity between deconstruction and reconstruction. The building as active process, as opposed to passive object, challenges our basic assumptions about it being a mere container of ‘space’, as a hypothetically inert primitive lacuna or pause. These are sonically redrawn as intersections between an indefinite number of dynamic contexts; the place where possible histories and futures interrogate one another in a play of reciprocal disturbance.” – Mark Fell
