Our Airs Conspire
Breathing peace in the Greenhouse
interactive installation
Kunstuitleen Utrecht
2 June – 1 September 2013

The interactive installation Our Airs Conspire has been designed for the celebration of the 300 years treaty of the Peace of Utrecht. This work has been nominated for the K.F. Hein Kunststipendium in 2012. With the Bed-In of John Lennon and Yoko Ono in the Amsterdam Hilton in mind, Anna van Suchtelen has transformed the greenhouse [the Kas] in the garden of Kunstuitleen Utrecht into a meditative space for the performance of the peace ritual Our Airs Conspire. The song Peace is the Song by William Croft from 1713, composed for the Peace of Utrecht, has been engraved in magic bowls filled with water. In the Kas the music sounds, the words evaporate and the text releases in the air. Visitors inhale the words, listen to the music and absorb the peace song in order to return home with consumed peace.

Our Airs Conspire has been partly made possible by Stokroos Foundation.
