The show tries to put our finger on the moment when the music is stopped and something is about to happen. The main questions the exhibited artworks address concern the arbitrariness of what is considered important and the difficulty of saying and really meaning something.
The concept of ‘background music’ or ‘background noise’ (often including words) pinpoints the essence of the mechanism: what we decide to matter, matters. In the exhibition music, noise and words are on display as visual compositions. By showing them as images or videos time is stopped or slowed down, and what we can usually perceive as ‘background’ is in focus now. The viewer finds themselves in the situation of analyzing and observing otherwise insignificant details and find meaning in them.
