‘Aaa-uuuuh’ was captured in binaural audio and broadcasted live on June 17 2020, listening via headphones is recommended.
Martyna Poznańska is an interdisciplinary artist who works with different media across disciplines, building connections between the intangible medium of sound and solid matter. This includes the practice of listening and field recording in tangent to working with various visual tools such as video, installation, her own body, and drawing. In recent years she engages her practice in environmental and political issues focusing on the relationship between the human body and the ‘body of nature’ and how it could be transformed.

In addition, she has worked with renowned artists such as Hans Peter Kuhn (Übergang, Martin-Gropius-Bau Museum, Berlin, 2017), and Peter Cusack.
