Juan Betancurth and Daniel Neumann

In the second collaboration between Daniel Neumann and Juan Betancurth, the basement becomes a site-specific, atmospherically charged sound environment that accrues meaning from the sound of the building over time. The sculptural elements Betancurth designs as part of his practice often address control, power, and liberation using utilitarian tools familiar to the domestic sphere. Neumann’s contribution draws from the material force of sound inherent in objects. Together, their work speaks directly to the bodily and textural experience of sound and matter.
