My sound installation went live at the Floor Ten Gallery last Saturday. It’s a piece about an artist / his work / his environment and the area surrounding the exhibit. The launch party was awesome! It’s available to view along with works from 10 other artists from 1 to 5pm this Saturday and Sunday.
Here’s my original proposal: “It’d be interesting to compose a piece around an exhibiting artist - a casual interview about their work, the soundscape of them at work etc. It would be akin to a third party reviewing the artist’s work, adding a fresh perspective instead of the usual blurb written up by the artist him/herself or gallery curator. I am imagining the piece to be more abstract than lyrical, and open to interpretation. This is not about judgement / critique, more about interpretation and perspectives. Initial thoughts are to run with whatever inspires me about the work / the artist / their studio / the gallery space. It wouldn’t be so much about an actual interview - I would see dialogue being used more like paint to express my own feelings and understandings of the work… It would require an artist willing to participate and have my sound installation exhibited alongside their work. I would also need a few hours access to them / their work / studio for recordings and interviews.”
