Men from Hyperion and Women from Phoebe (ver 0.3)
The installation work Men from Hyperion and Women from Phoebe (2011), for examples, features six guitars mounted on steel crossbar stands and connected to one another with slack wires. The electric guitars’ faceplates have been removed, revealing the built-in circuitry and electric pick-ups hidden under the surface. A DIY electronic circuit controls various sounds produced by the installation, while a pair of headphones allows participants encounter the work to engage on a different sensorial level. Venzha’s work is deliberately experimental and resists easy interpretation or categorization. Its unclassifiable ingenuity, however, is a testament to its inventiveness, and Venzha’s practice is invested in staking out forms of expressiveness that are as-of-yet to be realized.
