WRITING ABOUT THE SOUND OF UNICORNS
Salomé Voegelin

The Mushroom and the Cyclist, Mollin+Voegelin,
KunstRaum Riehen, Switzerland





First Action: Listen to a mushroom and a bicycle


As part of the performance a pre-recorded voice and sound track narrating the collision of a bicycle and a Volvo V40 at a mini roundabout entitled the Cyclist and the Mushroom, which was part of an installation of the same name, is played in the space. In the live performance a voice reads over it a text about the curious and too infrequently acknowledged fact that ‘the universe is not only queerer than we suppose but queerer than we can suppose’ (J.B.S. Haldane, Possible Worlds and Other Papers, 1927), while walking in a circle.
