For three month, Rudy Decelière has lived and worked as a Bauhaus resident in the Master House Schlemmer. On 1 July 2016, the French sound artist, who lives in Geneva, will finish his residency in Dessau by presenting his work “Silent Waters”. “Silent Waters” is an experimental work group with individual photographic works, which investigate the light flux in House Schlemmer.

Since early 2016, the Bauhaus residency programme invites artists to live and work in the Masters’ Houses. In different relations, the artists work with the Bauhaus heritage and the artist colony of the Masters’ Houses.

For Rudy Decelière, who usually works in darkened rooms, living in an UNESCO World Heritage has caused the change of the medium. Not the “Sound of the Houses” but catching the atmosphere in the correlation of light and room lies in the focus. Decelière’s work, which shows photos and exposed photo paper, is as kind of recapitulation of his two-month voyage on a cargo ship to China. The experience of light, water and loneliness are combined to a very personal reflection in the Master House residency.

Decelière, who was invited to the Bauhaus residency in cooperation with the Swiss curators Eggs/Bitschin, is one of the contributors to the Europe Exhibition at Berlin’s Bundestag subway station until 17 July 2016. In autumn, his works will be shown in Lausanne and at the Kunstmuseum Olten.
