Listening Back: Minute Year 2020
Minute/Year is a durational, process-based work by Kata Kovács and Tom O’Doherty. The installation creates a new, one-minute-long layered audio recording every day. It has been ongoing since January 1st, 2016, and alternates its location each year. Throughout 2020, Minute/Year was installed at bb15, recording and playing one minute of sound, each day at 20:20, for 366 days.

During this period, incidental events and collaborations around the work took place at the gallery space, contributing to its layered archive of hums and drones. Listening back to these recordings, we discover a narrative of this passing time, that like memory, re-arranges of multiple readings.

As a retrospective, the sound artists Daphne Xanthopoulou and Blazej Kotowski are invited to explore the archive of the work towards alternative narratives, accompanying the presentation of the artists Kata Kovács and Tom O’Doherty about the process of Minute/Year in 2020.
