Davor Sanvincenti (b.1979) is a multimedia artist from Croatia, specifically interested in a field of audiovisual phenomenology and anthropology of visual culture, particularly focused on the conditions and forms of human senses and perceptions. His work plays with the concept of illusion, exploring the possible boundaries of perception and the construction of experience. In 2010, he was recipient of the Radoslav Putar Award for the best Croatian artist under 35.
His work has been exhibited and presented internationally, including festivals 28th Music Biennale Zagreb; Rencontres Internationales, Paris/Berlin/Madrid; LOOP, Barcelona; 25FPS, Zagreb; World Film Festival, Bangkok; VideoEX, Zurich; CineMed, Montpellier and venues including Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; ZKM, Karlsruhe; Lincoln Center, New York; UniversalMuseum Joanneum, Graz; Museo de Arte Contemporanea, Oaxaca; FRAC Pays de la Loire, Carquefou; Camera Austria, Graz; MoCA, Zagreb; NIU, Barcelona; La Triennale, Milano; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin.
For 4DSOUND, Sanvincenti created a new sonic narrative called Resilient Nature. Sanvincenti: "From the encounter with the space and the system I sensed sound as a unique psycho-physical experience, activated and shaped by the space itself. Sounds here open your awareness of physical presence within the space, a sound-womb without borders."
In this intertwining game between space and sound he treats and sculpts each sound separately (field recordings, contact mics, binaural sounds) in order to prepare immersive environments which can shift the perception of dimensionality of space by our active presence. The space becomes tangible in its subtle vastness.
