EVENINGS OF LANDSCAPE IN SOUND AND PERFORMANCE
Reverse Space Gallery
PERFORMANCES APRIL 24TH AND MAY 1ST, 8PM
Evenings of Landscape in Sound and Performance is a two-night series of performance events that enhance the idea of landscape explored at our current exhibition ‘Of Landscape’. It features artists whose work relates to landscape through field recording, soundscapes or other interpretations that create the experience of a particular acoustic environment, an acoustic ecology or new ways of representing the electroacoustic space.
'Of Landscape', currently on view at our space, looks into the artificial and unstable images represented by the aestheticized idea of landscapes. Creating a link between the space we observe and the one we find ourselves in, it investigates the relationship between the current condition of images – as artifacts – and territory. The exhibited work explores, dissects, and re-informs the ways we think about data, nature and art through alternative methods of depicting geographic entities. These “neolandscapes” evince a penchant for incorporating new technologies into the process of graphically representing spatial knowledge.
The first session on April 24th will showcase Melissa F. Clark and a collaborative performance by Audra Wolowiec and Jeanann Dara. Clarke is a New York based, interdisciplinary artist who often works across mediums as a way to look at hybridizations of wilderness and technological spaces—towards considerations of nature at the center of human experience, myth, science, and information collection. Wolowiec is a Brooklyn based artist whose work mines themes of communication and modes of exchange. Oscillating between sculpture, sound, text and performance, she explores the idea of a fading connection to create an elusive but shared experience. Dara is a New York City based violist, composer, improvisor, collaborator, and curator.
The second set of performances, to be held on May 1st, will feature artists Jacob Kirkegaard and Aki Onda. Kirkegaard is a Danish artist based in Berlin, Germany. His works focus on scientific and aesthetic aspects of sonic perception, exploring acoustic spaces and phenomena that usually remain imperceptible to the immediate ear. Onda is a Japanese electronic musician, composer, and visual artist particularly known for his Cassette Memories project; works compiled from a “sound diary” of field-recordings collected by Onda over a span of two decades.
'Of Landscape' is on view until May 11th at REVERSE. Gallery hours: Wednesday-Saturday, 1pm-7pm, Sunday 2pm-6pm, and by appointment.
