Opening 28.05.14 6-9pm
Artist Talks 31.05.14 2-4m
Sculptures: 4 continues a series of artistic explorations that are concerned with the vitality of sound, its physical presence, the power it has to affect other objects and our expectations surrounding of it. Sculptures: 4 re-purposes the speaker from a sonic transmission device to a sculptural, visual object by using sound waves to generate visual movement and simultaneously power LED lights. Sculptures: 4 seeks to re-examine our relationship to the audible and re-think sound as a physical and conceptual property as well as an audible one. The work subverts the materials in order to reveal and make sensory the transition of energy, capturing a moment of potentiality that shows an instantaneous conversion between media.
Té is the interdisciplinary arts project of Kynan Tan (Perth) and Andrew Brooks (Sydney). Working with sound as a departure point, the group is interested in approaching sound as a conceptual, visible and physical medium. They create works in the format of performances, installations, kinetic sculptures, recordings and thought experiments, and these works question the ephemerality and physicality of sound, listening experience, improvisation, and audience/performer relationship. They have performed as part of the TURA Totally Huge New Music Festival, the NOW now Festival of Arts, toured Europe and Japan and undertaken residencies at Performance Space (Sydney) and the Centre for Contemporary Arts (Perth).
