Descriptions & Essays
Claudia Robles-Angel 12-09-2021
With her installation "Über allen Wipfeln ist Ruh", Claudia Robles created a space of silence and contemplation, in order to make - in return - the extreme noise pollution almost painfully tangible:
The Goethe-Institut Bogotá is located on one of the city's busiest streets, Carrera 7, with noise levels reaching health-threatening levels day and night. Upon entering the institute, visitors were first subjected to a noise shower by being bombarded by loudspeakers with the recorded noise of Carrera 7.
The contrast between this and the feeling that arose when entering the soundproofed cube in one of the interior rooms was particularly intense: here a sound and light composition was projected, for which Claudia Robles had been inspired by the Goethe poem " Über allen Wipfeln ist Ruh". An invitation to the visitor/viewer/listener to surrender to the meditative silence of the room.
From this installation, the path then led to "Goethe's Garden" : inspired by Goethe's theory of colors, Claudia Robles had erected an ensemble of panels here, which were illuminated in a subtly conceived interplay of different colors, inviting visitors to create color-shadow compositions on the panels through their movements.

Mit ihrer Installation “ Über allen Wipfeln ist Ruh”, shuf Claudia Robles einen Raum der Stille und Besinnung, um – im Gegenzug – die extreme Lärmbelastung geradezu schmerzhaft erfahrbar zu machen:
Das Goethe-Institut Bogotá liegt an einer der meist befehrenen Strassen der Stadt, der Carrera 7. Der Lärmpegel erreicht Tag und Nacht gesundheitsschaedinge Werte. Beim Betreten des Instituts wurden die Besucher zunächst einer Lärmdusche ausgesetzt, indem sie per Lautsprecher mit dem aufgenommenen Lärm der Carrera 7 beschalt wurden.
Besonders intensiv wurde dadurch der Gegensatz zu dem Gefühl, welches sich dann beim Betreten des schallisolierten Kubus in einem der Innenraeume ergab: hier wurde eine Laut und Lichtkomposition projiziert, bei der sich Claudia Robles vom Goethe-Gedicht “ Über allen Wipfeln ist Ruh” hatte inspirieren lassen. Eine Einladung an den Besucher/Zuschauer/Zuhörer, sich der Meditativen Stille des Raumes zu überlassen.
Von dieser Installation führte der Weg dann in "Goethes Garten" : angeret durch die Farbenlehre Goethes hatte Claudia Robles hier ein Ensemble von Paneelen errichtet, die in einem subtil erdachten Wechselspiel in unterschiedlichen Farben angestrahlt wurden und die Besucher einluden, durch ihre Bewegungen Farb-Schatten-Kompositionen auf den Paneelen zu schaffen.
