Kata Kovács and Tom O’Doherty

Kata Kovács and Tom O’Doherty have worked as a collaborative duo since 2011. Their work combines elements of durational and time-based art, minimalist movement, and electroacoustic music and sound. They are interested in processes, sounds, and movements that come close to imperceptibility, and the ways in which this material can be transformed through repetition, patterning, layering, and archiving. This has included work with radio signals from abandoned satellites, recordings of ice on the surfaces of frozen rivers, multi-year layered recording of room tones, and more. Currently they are working on Carried Bells, a work which gathers and combines sound recordings of ringing church bells from the city of Berlin.


They have exhibited and presented work at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, California; Serralves Museum, Porto; National Museum of Contemporary Art (Chiado), Lisbon; Kunstquartier Bethanien, Berlin; Kunstkraftwerk, Leipzig; and Digital in Berlin’s Kiezsalon series, Berlin, among others. They have been recipients of the LACMA Art + Technology Lab Award, and of the Tanzstipendium award of the Berlin Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Europa. They live and work in Berlin, Germany.
