Exponential Extensios (2023)
Version Room with Bruno Christofoletti Barrenha, Marie Siekmann, and Harm Coordes
In the exhibition Exponential Extensions, the artists explore the boundaries between physical and digital, speed and stagnation, yesterday and tomorrow. This exhibition also seeks to challenge traditional notions of space by producing a temporary center – a spacelessness – where multiple expressions can coexist in a single moment. Through a combination of visual and sound art, text, accumulation and appropriation of everyday objects, the artists will explore themes of authenticity, identity, memory, and the human experience in the form of a multimedia installation.
CIRCA 106 (Centrum for international Research and Collaborative Art)
Bismarckstraße 106 / Bremen, Germany

23.02. – 26.02.2023

Version Room is a program that takes place throughout the year in the exhibition space Circa 106 where “The Dynamic Archive” exhibits its components and versions. In line with the context of Circa 106,  “The Dynamic Archive” sets out to discuss, probe, and develop the questions of collaborative work and sharing. Artists and designers provide “The Dynamic Archive” with their working methods and processes (components), in order to make these resources available online to others for use and further development. These working methods and processes are presented beyond their digital environment in Circa 106. 
The Program Version Room has started with its first physical installment in December (2020). The artists entering the gallery space of Circa 106 will reference their respective component(s) and version(s), available online in The Dynamic Archive, exploring the possibilities in a gallery space.

Fever Pitch (2021)
Multi-Channel Sound Installation
Concept / Sound Design / Setup
Bruno Christofoletti Barrenha

Master Project at the University of the Arts Bremen.

Motivated by the COVID-19 pandemic situation, which changed the essence of football by extracting what is most valuable in it – the fans, their energy and devotion – FEVER PITCH is a sound installation that reflects on the role that sound plays in the experience of a match.

It consists of four short-range FM transmitters and 12 second-hand pocket-radios attached to the wall, resembling a football team line-up. The listeners may also approximate their ears closer to the radios if they want to listen to specific sounds coming from distinct sources.  

All the chants in the installation are sung by fanbases of different South American football clubs and follow an idea of motivation, passion and death as a basis to explore narratives of affection, belonging, and also a critique to the position of football – which, despite facing a pandemic, continued non-stop. 
“No vengo por salir campeón”
– Los Piratas Celestes de Alberdi, fanbase of
Club Atlético Belgrano (Argentina)

No vengo por salir campeón,
Vengo porque te quiero.
Yo vengo para recordar
A los que ya se fueron.
Doy gracias a todos los que dejaron la vida,
Esta barra no se olvida,
Los lleva en el corazón!

I don’t come to be a champion,
I come because I love you.
I come to remember
Those who have passed away,
I thank all of those who have left this life,
This crowd won't forget you,
We carry you on our hearts!
