KUBORAUM ARE MASKS DESIGNED ON THE FACE OF THOSE WHO WEAR THEM, MASKS THAT HIGHLIGHT PERSONALITY AND EMPHASIZE CHARACTER. THE MASK IS SYNONYMOUS WITH MOCKERY, WITH GAME. THE KUBORAUM MASKS ARE SYNONYMOUS WITH ACCENTUATION, PROTECTION AND SHELTER. KUBORAUM ARE LIKE CUBIC ROOMS WHERE WE SHELTER OURSELVES, WHERE WE ARE FREE TO LIVE IN OUR INTIMACY, WHERE WE LIVE ALL OUR IDENTITIES AND LOOK AT THE WORLD THROUGH TWO LENSES.

KUBORAUM EYEWEAR IS NOT AN INANIMATE AND INORGANIC OBJECT, BUT OBTAINS THE POWER OF A MASK. IT CHANGES THE PERCEPTION OF SELF. THOSE WHO WEAR THE KUBORAUM MASK, COME TO LIFE AND ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE TO FREE THEIR IDENTITIES. THESE MASKS REPRESENT CUBIC ROOMS, A NEW DIMENSION WHERE WE CAN FEEL AT EASE, COMFORTABLE WITH OURSELVES AND THE WORLD AROUND US. KUBORAUM IS NO LOGO. IT IS A MASK WITH ITS OWN LOOK AND POWER, BUT AS SOON AS YOU WEAR IT, THE MASK DOESN’T HIGHLIGHT ITSELF, BUT IT HIGHLIGHTS THE PERSONALITY AND FEATURES OF THE PERSON WEARING IT, KUBORAUM’S IDENTITY IS ABOUT THIS RELATIONSHIP.

ALL OUR MASKS ARE ENTIRELY DREAMED IN BERLIN HANDMADE IN ITALY.

Emiliano Maggi – SPETTRO SOUND SYSTEM

THURSDAY, APRIL 26TH, 2018

KUBORAUM & OPERATIVA ARTE CONTEMPORANEA WERE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE OPENING OF THE EXHIBITION SPETTRO SOUND SYSTEM BY THE ARTIST EMILIANO MAGGI ON THURSDAY APRIL 26TH, DURING BERLIN GALLERY WEEKEND 2018.


SPETTRO SOUND SYSTEM IS THE SOUND INSTALLATION SPECIFICALLY CONCEIVED BY EMILIANO MAGGI FOR THE VISIONARY SPACES OF THE KUBORAUM FLAGSHIP STORE IN BERLIN.
THIS PROJECT IS THE RESULT OF THE THE ARTIST’S RESEARCH ON THE INTERCONNECTION BETWEEN SOUND, FORM, FUNCTION AND THE TRANSFIGURATION OF INSTRUMENTS AND MUSICAL EFFECTS THROUGH THE USE OF ALIENATING CERAMIC SCULPTURES THAT REINVENT APPEARANCE AND PERCEPTION.
FIVE GLAZED CERAMIC SCULPTURES ENCOMPASSING WITHIN THEIR SHELL FIVE FUNCTIONING MICROPHONES WILL STOOD OUT IN THE SPACE. THE MICROPHONE/SCULPTURES ARE THOSE THAT ACCOMPANIED THE ARTIST DURING THE LAST FEW YEARS OF PERFORMANCES AND LIVE SHOWS, THE SAME SHELLS THAT HAVE HARNESSED AND MAGNIFIED HIS VOICE AND THAT NOW PRESENT THEMSELVES AS A HOMOGENEOUS SCULPTURAL CHOIR.

MICROPHONES AND SPEAKERS, CONNECTED TO AN EIGHT CHANNEL MIXER, RESONATED THE VOICE OF THE ARTIST WHO PERFORMED A SERIES OF VOCAL EXERCISES GRADUALLY MODIFIED THROUGH DISTORTIONARY AND HYPNOTIC EFFECTS.
IN ADDITION, THE SOUND OF THE AMBIENT BACKGROUND NOISE CAPTURED BY THE MICROPHONES WAS ALSO HEARD, BLENDING INTO A UNIQUE
DREAMLIKE AND ALIENATING POLYPHONY.
ON DISPLAY NEXT TO THIS ONEIRIC SOUND INSTALLATION THERE WERE PRESENTED FOUR CERAMIC SCULPTURES ESPECIALLY CONCEIVED BY THE ARTIST AS A SCULPTURAL DIALOGUE WITH FOUR KUBORAUM MASKS, AS THE RESULT OF AN ABSURD INTERCONNECTION BETWEEN THE ARTIST’S ORGANIC SHAPES AND THE KUBORAUM ARCHITECTURAL GEOMETRIES.
