A 440 Hertz is also known as concert pitch and serves as a reference for tuning orchestras. In native Denmark the concert pitch is called ‘kammertonen’, and features in an idiom. To ask for the concert pitch, or ’kammertonen,’ is to plead for respectful conversation and discourse. It is to listen, to stay in tune with one another instead of privileging the polarising opinions of individuals at the expense of community and collectively.
“I’ve always worked in a breadth of media, making jewellery, hollowware, and other types of objects. In this exhibition, I’m showing a series of four tone generators, each producing concert pitch; A 440 Hertz. I see them as a natural component of the jewellery project I call ‘Kammertonen’ or ‘Tune In’ which is spotlighted here. In this case, they set the tone for the entire exhibition. Although they produce sound, I don’t envision them as musical instruments. Rather, they are creature-like, inquisitive and asking for interaction, coming alive at the hand of the spectator.”
Other work on display is jewellery which has been developed in a similar spirit: investigating and altering idioms, both those that exist in our language and in our visual culture.
