About the exhibition

The subtitle of Zoran Naskovski’s installation „AAA“ (The Sound I Saw) refers to the project/book bearing the same title by American artist Roy DeCarava. It consist of a stream of text and black and white photographs of the jazz scene and everyday life, shot in Harlem during the late 1950s and the early 1960s. The pages of this book, attached only in the upper part and placed along a lit showcase inside which are African objects selected by Museum curators, accompanied by three microphones set to echo effect, are the basis of the artwork which offers the possibility of active participation. This installation within the permanent Museum display space enhanced by the introduction of video in 2013 additionally emphasizes the importance of the reconsideration of one’s own position in the context of contemporaneity, media flux, artefacts, as well as the museum itself.
