Mochvara Gallery enters the fall season of 2014 deliriously flooded! Aqueous is an ambiental audio-visual installation by the young Split artist Toni Mijač, cordially inviting you to dive deep into intense states of consciousness and extraordinary emotions of the overwhelming and exaggerated water surfaces.  The visual purity and simplicity of the water is activated by alternating drops coordinated and accompanied by sounds of soothing rhythmic episodes which interchange with intense sounds and fast motion picture tempo, creating a minimalist sound composition rich in tone and rhythm dynamics.

The instrument functions as a set of percussions while the drops act as drums creating a sound effect on visual channels coordinate, according to their coloristic features, with the tones of the instrument. Visitors will have to opportunity to dive into this magical aquatic ambiental experience on Monday, September 22nd 2014 from 8pm at the exhibition opening and artist talk with Toni Mijač who will be discussing his fascination with water and sound as well as the relation between ambiance and performative arts. The exhibition will also be open on September 23rd and 24th from 5pm to 9pm. The project is realised within the Sound Art Incubator 2014 – production platform by Mochvara Gallery.
