Very happy to present my first solo exhibition in Montreal, opening Feb 19, 2015 (vernissage @ 17h30).
“The sound of empty space” explores relationships between microphones, speakers, and surrounding acoustic environment through controlled, self-generating microphone feedback.
By amplifying and aestheticizing the acoustic inactivity between technological “inputs” and “outputs” – stand-ins for their corporeal correlates, the ear and mouth – the notion of causal sound producing object is refuted; we are listening to the empty space between components of flawed communication systems.
Through a series of new, interrelated works, sound is revealed not as an object or autonomous event, but a product of a complex, interdependent system of relations.
The show runs Feb 20 – March 21, Tuesday to Saturday, 12h-17h at Galerie B-312 (372 Sainte-Catherine Ouest #403)
