Time of the wolves | Adrian Mokanu

”Time of the wolves” is a musical, electroacoustical, immersive installation. It’s sound texture is created by juxtaposing real recordings with electronic, synthetical sounds. 

The proposal is inspired by the personal experience of the ukrainian artist Adrian Mokanu who, being located in Kiev on the morning of the 24th February when Russia invaded Ukraine, mistook the air raid alarms for the howling of the wolves. 
Through the installation, the author invites the participants to transpose themselves into the soundscape of the reality that the inhabitants of Ukraine are living in for already more than a year, in the midst of war - a reality that is majestic and profound on one hand, and sinister and threatening on the other hand. 

The opening of the installation will take place on 1 September, h 18:00, and the installation can be visited daily until 15 September 2023, between 13:00-19:00, together with the „Diary” installation, by Olha Yeriemieieva.
