Coming Home BY Lisa Bickel

In her work “Coming Home,” Lisa Bickel poses a series of questions: What do you hear when, after a long day, you come home and switch on the light? How is the atmosphere? Which sound do you perceive as pleasant? Which is annoying? “Coming Home” endeavors to shift the audience’s attention from an unfamiliar situation in the gallery to familiar circumstances. The act of switching light bulbs on and off generates individual soundscapes reminiscent of home. Sounds you hear on a daily basis, but often don’t even notice, engender a feeling of intimacy and evoke memories. Especially now, in a time of refugee crises, the act of coming home is endowed with a totally new significance. For many people, the confines of one’s own four walls constitute a sheltering space.
