Doors of Paradise
Center for Architectural Heritage Plasy

Doors to Paradise address the edge of the imaginary and confront the barrier of the (not)allowed. Liquid phantasy of micro locality. The work falls within the scope of the author´s devotion to the phenomena of the wall, paradise, body, voice, rivers.


The flowing fleetingness of the captured voices in the language of the water continues its cosmic eavesdropping. In the intimacy of the interior regions, the fountain recalls the uncertainty, the hearing awakes.

Talk about the performance piece Doors to Paradise and presentation of the artist book The Golden Walls, together with short version of the sound performance PARADISCO.

Petra Kapš alias OR poiesis (b. 1975, Slovenia) weaves her work among the arts of sound, radio, chrono-spatial poetry, poetic performance, books and reflection. Aside from the ethereal features of sound, she focuses on the physical presence of the body. She extends the word, her core medium, with sonic spheres of sonorous poetry. Kapš is interested in aural memory and the deep time of the body. Incorporating an (a)syntemporal presence through the digital sphere, she researches the possibilities of intimate radio and is concerned with the void ear of the internet listener. Her sound/radio/book works are located solitudes.
