The Oval Language
upcoming & now:

Mail Art Project

Entitled “Stars move leaving dust and sound behind them” the mail art will be available for viewing in two central bookstores in Patras and Athens and possibly other cities in Greece too. The works of art exhibited will change once or twice a week, as new pieces of art arrive. This will be followed by a combined exhibition of all entries with a venue and date yet to be announced.

The Oval Language is represented with 2 entries. The first part (above) is a collage by Klaus-Peter John. The second part is a collaboration between Klaus-Peter John and Heiko. Sounds where recorded in Leipzig (Germany) and sampled in Ballinderry (Northern Ireland). The resulting short track is titled "The dust hasn't settled yet" (cover below).

On Friday October 20th 2017 films will be shown by Peter Schüler. Among others a film of a performance by The Oval Language with Tadashi Endo at the Festival "Übergriff" at Werk II, Leipzig.
