Beside other projects, Hernán Kerlleñevich started Personal Space during the residency in Vienna from December 2016 until February 2017.
Personal Space is presented as an interactive sound installation in which the sound sources are human musicians, who react subjectively with acoustic instruments to the locations of the public, based on proxemic relationships.
The term proxemics refers to the use and perception that humans have of their physical space, their personal intimacy. It describes the measurable distances between the individuals while they interact with each other, their postures and the existence or absence of physical contact.“
The first steps for realizing the project took place in Vienna at the temporary space Feldversuch with following musicians: Mona Matbou Riahi, Valentín Pelisch, Katrin Hauk, Peter Seher, Arnold Noid Haberl, Glo Noise, Diego Mune, Tanja Brueggemann, Susanna Gartmayer, Stojan Vavti. The final performance took place at Panal361 Art Gallery, Buenos Aires, Argentina, 21st of March 2017. Performer: Cecilia Quinteros, Eliana Rosales, Violeta García, Steve DiGregorio
Radia-Kollektiv-Wien: Barbara Huber, Barbara Kaiser, Florian Bauer, Karl Schönswetter, Maria Herold.
