Silent Whale LettersA Long-Distance Correspondence, on All Frequencies

Ella Finer, Vibeke Mascini - Silent Whale Letters
A long-distance correspondence reflecting on the infravoice of a blue whale and other so-called “silent” subjects.
Ella Finer (born 1983) is a London-based artist whose work in sound and performance spans writing, composing, and curating with a particular interest in how women's voices take up space; how bodies acoustically disrupt, challenge, or change occupations of space. Her research continuously queries the ownership of cultural expression through sound; often through collaborative projects centering listening as a practice of deep attention, affiliation, and reciprocity.
Vibeke Mascini (born 1989) is a visual artist and writer based in The Hague, NL. Her research looks into historic and futuristic concepts of electricity as a speculative agent of life. Often working collaboratively with scientists, engineers, government employees, and music composers, her sculptures, installations, videos, and texts seek to channel an intimate understanding of electricity by drawing a direct relation to its source.
