Growling as a Form of Language

A performance by Shelter of Trust

18.05.2024, 21:00 — 21:15 Performance

On Saturday, May 18, Shelter of Trust leads us into the powerful performance 'Growling as a Form of Language'.

Drawing inspiration from black metal culture, the performance ‘Growling as a Form of Language’ embraces both its visual aspects and language, deconstructed into found materials and guttural vocals. It will be acted out by Ondřej Doskočil, a visual artist and musician who currently represents Shelter of Trust as an artist-in-residence at MORPHO.

Shelter of Trust uses the codes of this originally violent culture and turns it into symbols of protection, nature, and collectivity. No personality cults! The grunting technique is offered as an alternative means of expression for anyone who is shy, lost for words, wanting to escape visibility or control, and so on.



Saturday, May 18, from 9:00 PM to 9:15 PM

↳ In collaboration with MORPHO and MeetFactory

↳ at the chapel of Kunsthal Extra City


Shelter of Trust is an open artistic platform founded in 2020 in Prague, Czech Republic. In collaboration with the artists they attract, Shelter of Trust organizes collaborative exhibitions and performances, and participates in residency or educational programs. They primarily work in the areas of performance, music/sound, and visual arts, or a combination thereof. The central theme of the group is trust—members of this not-so-fictional community futilely seek trust in the alienated world of official documents. Whether they succeed in creating another, safer, and more trusting reality for themselves, each other, or those seeking refuge remains a question.
