You Lunz - You have to listen

Performances in public space, video
Karo Szmit & Stephanie Mold 2011

„You Lunz - You have to listen“ was produced for the exhibition „You Lunz – We listen“ at the Amonhaus in Lunz am See (A), concluding an artist residency with Stephanie Mold at the wellenklaenge festival.

The initial point for the work was an old polish fok song I heard during the festival. Being a pole living in Austria I decided to explore my „slavic soul“ and to learn to sing the song. Performing a fragment of „kare konie“ („white horses“) at different spots in Lunz's public space I attempted to blend folklore from a polish to an austrian mountain area.
