Description

If you put your head into a Summloch and breathe out deeply humming, the sounds you emit cause the object to resonate. If you place your hand on your neck, you can feel the vibrations. The vibrations will affect your body; depending on the pitch, the buzzing triggers a stronger or weaker tingling in the body. The result is a harmonious feeling of well- being.

A Summloch is a buzzing or humming hole, and it can have different shapes and be made of ceramic, beeswax, tadelakt or plaster with each of these earthbound materials having its own sound. Summlöcher are participatory sculptures that, in the digital age, remind us that we are sentient, perceiving beings.

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
