Michael Beck | 'A Man Through A String', mixed media
Openings, windows, doorframe fragments, doors – these elements, whose abstract formality is typical of Michael Beck's work, serve as a portal into the home.
Sound excerpts that wander from the window to the door, and from there to yet another window, were edited and integrated into the works. Another piece, created in oil on linen, depicts an opaque window in which light emanates and shines through the painted surface.
As a complete ensemble, the works also offer a dynamic exchange between different types of string instruments: oud, bass guitar, and acoustic guitar.
