Lina Lapelytė creates a sculptural listening space – a weekly ritual activated by a composition of surrounding bell towers and a vocal performance.

Weekly performance every Tuesday at 5:07 pm, duration: 15 minutes

At the invitation of Public Art München, renowned Lithuanian artist, Venice Art Biennale Golden Lion winner Lina Lapelytė introduces Copper Lick, a project conceived specifically for Munich. Lapelytė invites the city to a collective auditory experience by creating a space for listening and performance – a weekly event that re-evaluates the gravity of church bells and the importance of the human voice.

Beginning on March 19 and continuing every Tuesday shortly after 5 pm, Lapelytė unveils her composition for Munich’s church bells, interweaving it with the singing human voices. This conversation of the grand and the fragile is framed by a specially-made parabolic stone sculpture, carved from a single 400 million-year-old limestone boulder found in Lithuania and designed together with Mantas Peteraitis architecture studio.

Over 90 days, Copper Lick transforms into a gathering point, a sonic amplifier, and a mirror reflecting the city’s acoustic identity.
