Bronze Bells at Polish Pavilion

Everything Was Forever, Until It Was No More, a sound installation by Polish visual artist, photographer and musician Konrad Smoleński, will be on display June 1-Nov. 24 in the Polish Pavilion at the 55th International Art Exhibition in Venice.

The name has been borrowed from a book of that title by Alexei Yurchak, who tells the story of the fall of the Soviet Union as seen by an ordinary individual.

The installation comprises two bronze bells weighing 380 and 420 kilograms.

Smoleński told a press conference that the ringing of the bells will be fed into sound processors and then played back through speakers mounted on two walls and incorporated into the installation. “This physical dimension of the sound will interact with nearby matter and lead to the third element—two walls of metal lockers,” Smoleński has said. “The impact will produce an effect of disproportionate resonance, comparable to the way rings ripple out from where a stone hits water.”

Smoleński, 36, is an artist who uses different artistic media from videos to installations and performance to music. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznań in 2002.
