Ioana Mândrescu, 40

European Postgraduate of Arts in Sound

A site-specific, multi-channel sound installation about the human body and its condition, honoring almost eight centuries of death and healing on the de Bijloke site. 40 explores the potential of sound in evoking experiences of sickness and alienation, without the aid of any visual stimuli.

The title references the forty beds in the original hospital building, erected during the first half of the 13th century in the marshland surrounding the city of Ghent.
