I was a drum’s voice in the night but sleeping / Eram o voce de tambur in noapte, dar dormind
(with Enrico Floriddia)
sound piece /audio guide in Romanian and English, 2020
General area of interest: Egyptian collection
Specific area of interest: Ptolemaic period mummies: human mum- my; mummy fragment (right lung); mummy fragment (right hand); phallus; phallus; baby crocodile; mummified bird of prey; mummified ibis; mummified bird (probably ibis).
Puzzled by the mere presence of mummies coming from Egypt at the National Museum of Transylvanian History, Enrico Floriddia and Diana Duta collaborated to fabricate a story for these living beings. Sinta Wibowo lent her voice to this patched out narrative: fickle but gentle.
Commissioned by The Paintbrush Factory, Cluj, Romania in collaboration with the Museum of Transylvanian History in Cluj.
