GLI DELINDRO – Invisible Nature

How deep can you see and how far can you hear?

As a part of a whole picture, limited with own bodies and it’s functions, we are not able to perceive and experience wholeness. Standing in a circle of own thoughts and feelings, not rarely, we are not able to observe even what is given to us. How many times you were nearby the river but not being focused on a river’s voice? Passing through a forest, could you count all that missed audible noises? Did you hear wind this morning? How many times did you enjoy in a music of silence? And then, did you ever think about the language of stuff around you? Of nature? Woods? Rocks?

 

Inaudibility is everywhere. A transformation from one state to another is really possible. Audible things can become noiseless, and silence can speak! Crossing the line between audible and inaudible world, Gli Delindro is admitting an existence of limits of our perception, by showing us a magical dimension of hidden sounds. Opening the door to this world, he undercovered sensibility of nature. Making a corporeality of inaudible music, though his sound installations, he is moving audibility of next level.

Gli’s recent exhibition brought a spirit of Sahara and Algerian-Moroccan border area in “A Grain Within a Cloud of Dust” (what is the name of the exhibition) in Berlin (Turm gallery). His deals with performative actions and experimental fields of recording small areas of reality, he is zipping a nature in certain pieces and at the same time making observation wider!

His audible silence occurred in collaboration with movements and interaction with ongoing reality, on the microscopic level of attention. In musical minimalism, this reality is showing us words of certain organic materials such are woods and stones. A language. Real language, based on tiny vibrations. Here, around us all the time, but never truly “here”, is becoming a part of our experience. Acoustic potential as a form of perception is comparing human’s and nature’s abilities, as well as an ability of individual as an observer, his tickled imagination and awaken curiosity. Everything around us is so alive! And everything possessed own noise! We just have to prick up our ears, look with inner eyes, and listen by a soul.

A stamp on artists works is drone produced music, minimalistic sound, characterized by long repetitions and a not so harmonic rhythm that are reducing means by creating one new, unusual complexity and beauty of unordinary asymmetric.

Continuum” is an 8-hour performance in the Sahara Desert in a form of a video work. The game is an interaction of contact microphones, a branch, and the desert floor, what is producing a wide range of interesting noises, during which the speed of a sound is determined by the consistency of a soil and a way of Gli’s movement all along the drawing process.

In Delindro’s work “Cartographies”, possibilities are enriched by contacts of different objects and a physio-philosophical connection between few far away points on the planet. The installation includes the arrangement of rocks from the Algerian-Moroccan border area, volcanic rocks from the Volcans d’Auvergne National Park and yellow quartzite from mountains of Balkan. Edges of grass are pins added in a polyphonic symphony of exposition. Geo-cultural association, zipped in a conversation between rocks, met at the same place, thanks to the creator who uncovered to us a peek in tiny miracles around ourselves.

Ebor” is the central work of “A Gran Within a Cloud of Dust”. Did you ever think about a living tree? They woody, mysterious conversations buried under a core? Well, Ebor is a skeleton of a tree, dressed up in a moss and lichen, that you would be able to hear. The raw trunk is naturally decorated by volcanic rocks inside of its hollows, what is by ELF antennas and low-frequency receivers enable audibility of clandestine.

The effect is reinforced by man-made electronic devices and electromagnetic antennas by which a piece of the divine in this object is surrounded. Little translators of another dimensional language are processed algorithms and transform them in a real time. This way occurred a permeation of interior of the tree and it’s exterior.

This silently loud dialogue with an audience is a call to awareness. Awareness of all beauty around us. A mystery. Wizardry. A greatness of ordinary appearances. So near and still so far away of individuals. A poetic suggestion of the artist to vibrate with nature. To open our sensations and feelings towards existences.
