In the sound installation Collection of Doubts, Katinka de Jonge brings together sounds, words, and sentences taken from the many encounters and conversations she had while residing in Lugar a Dudas, Colombia. A polyphony of voices and rhythms will resound from speakers handcrafted from gourds—a popular instrument in Pacific music—challenging us to consider how meaning changes along with the given context.
Katinka de Jonge was born in 1989 in Amsterdam and lives and works in Ghent. Katinka de Jonge’s work was produced in partnership with Werktank, Leuven, and Overtoon, Brussels.
The term "transcoding" originates from the field of computers and more precisely from the conversion of one digital format to another. However, this terminology appears more and more in the cultural context as a new paradigm beyond common media theories. It addresses the issue of correspondence of signs which one medium operates within another. The exhibition explores the trans-lation/coding of signs in between different forms of expression as a possible reading of actual artistic production. Featuring former Overtoon resident Gert Aertsen & current resident VOID.
