With his exhibition entitled Psst at Trapéz Damir Očko invites us to explore linguistic turns, distortions and twists to point out the poetic and musical characteristics of speaking with integrating the dimensions of sound and picture.

The exhibition consists of twelve photo collages and a sound installation. The photo collages are made out of either punched or inserted elements, fragments of sentences and other abstract and geometric shapes, while the base of the artworks are photos of the artist’s hand and interiors.

The V shaped installation has a sound installation inside of it as the one exhibited in the Palais de Tokyo in 2012* and it uses the onomatopoetic words Psst! and Hush! which are also the basis of the photo collages. These words are the abstraction of language, referring to the situations when we quiet someone or ask to join us as an ally.

They are between sound and words transforming the soundinstallation into a cacophonic music composition. Očko’s working method is transparent: through his research for materials or themes he uses quiet and invisible elements for his works, and he made them hearable and visible with the help of poetic, political and theoretical gestures.
