In Relocation, Yann Novak explores the multitude of emotional states experienced during and after the relocation of one’s life. Utilizing his unique technique of transforming a simple environmental recording into something emotional and visceral, Novak creates three installations, each using a different step of the moving process as a point of departure. In all three works, Novak alters the timbre of the recordings but not the length. By doing so he let the subtly changing character of the original recordings dictate how the pieces will unfold. The pieces are spared formal compositional interjection from the artist and allowed to exist in the limbo between documentation and composition.
Relocation.Triptych is a 2011 print edition in the Relocation series. The piece is composed from three stills from the audio/video installation Relocation.Mobile. These images have been altered and were originally intended for the Relocation.Reconstruction CD cover released on LINE in 2010 (LINE_045).
The Relocation.Triptych is printed on Crane Museo Max 365gsm paper.
