"S.T.R.H. Smoleński’s installation fills the main exhibition hall of the Łaźnia Centre for Contemporary Art in Gdańsk entirely, denying viewers a safe distance and pulling them towards its interior. The visual elements consist of massive, static, 3-dimensional objects which generate low-frequency sound at specific intervals. The sound unfolds from a nearly inaudible acoustic pressure into powerful rumblings that shake everything in their path – including the walls of the space and the body of the viewer – and eventually dissipate into complete silence. This way, contact with the work of art becomes a total sensory experience that involves not only the viewer’s vision and hearing but their whole body; it is an entirely physical sensation. Though not devoid of a visual presence, the piece makes its impact mainly with sound, which, generated in specific ways, creates the impression of an all-encompassing experience – a synthesis of the senses that combines cues perceived by spatial receptors (eyes and ears) and contact receptors (skin and muscle)."
Kamila Wielebska - curator

The title Stones That Rest Heavily derives from
Colin Stetson and Mats Gustafsson’s album Stones (2012).
