Whistle, Minotaure! is pleased to present the first event of a series of following events curated by Francesco Cavaliere & Marcel Türkowsky.
A garden space, could be outdoors or set aside for the display, a cultivation and enjoyment of plants and other forms of nature. It referes to an enclosed area of land, adjoining to a building. The most common form is  a residential garden. But there is also zoos which display wild animals in simulated natural habitats. A garden may sometimes exhibit a structural enhancement, including water features such as fountains, ponds, waterfalls or creeks, dry creek beds, statuary, arbors, trellises and more. Some are for ornamental purpose only, while some others also produce an experience moving through seperate areas or within an amount of time. Sometimes flower gardens combine plants of different heights, color, textures, and fragrances to create interest and delight the senses.
To take care is the activity of growing and maintaining them.
A gardener might also work in a non-garden setting, such as a park, a roadside embankment, or other public space.
The soundinstallation Short Summer by Seiji Morimoto will show a collection of objects of diverse natural and man-made low technical materials that incorporate eachother. The work reflects the possibility of giving life to the objects that will produce small sounds in an empty space. The buzzers used in this installation manifest a natural process by combining electricity and magnetism to create a vibration that produces sound. During the seven days Seiji Morimoto will rearrange the objects every single day at fixed times to research the relations between material and space.
Seiji Morimoto, born in Tokyo 1971, studied musicology at the Kunitachi College of Music, graduating in 1996. During this period he began to play the electronic pieces by John Cage and his own sound performances. Since then he has been active in the field of sound-art and creates sound performances, installations and videos. He is interested in the uncertain acoustic appearances between usual objects, for example water and stones, and the technical medium and worked as a gardener for four years.
Selected solo exhibitions - "Magpie" / Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, Tokyo (1999), "Nocturne" / Gallery ZERO, Berlin (transmediale 2005), "Schimmer" / petal fugal, Tokyo (2006) and "Rotes Licht" / ausland, Berlin (2007).
He has performed and exhibited in many international festivals including transmediale in Berlin (2005/08), Experimental Music in Munich (2004/06/07/09).
