Ulla Rauter

With the onset of dusk to midnight Ulla Rauter (A) presented TACET in the Vltava at the Smetana Museum.

The intervention TACET refers to acoustic pauses by drawing on the urban background noise making it the unwritten score of that piece of art. The illumination of the lettering marks as a visual accent the rarely noticed moments of peace acting as an interruption of the nearly constant urban noise level. TACET is an instruction to be quiet, thereby leading to several questions: Who is meant to be quiet and who is already quiet? TACET is aimed at a not present musical subject or instead at the collective of noise producing things and creatures within the near surrounding and all struggling to win the battle to be heared.

Ulla Rauter, born in 1980, works in Vienna. From 2000-2002 she studied at the college for graphic design in Vienna where she conducted a master in communication design.
