Finissage Party: It Matters What Moves | Ally Bisshop

  • AD Space - E-Block, UNSW Art and Design Greens Road Paddington, NSW, 2021 Australia (map)

with performance by Jasmine Guffond

This exhibition explores art's potential to reinfect matter with memory, and to create openings to the 'more-than-human' movements active within an ecology of experience. 

It engages process philosopher Henri Bergson's ideas about duration, matter, perception, intuition and fabulation as propositions for an artistic experimentation with matter's movements. 

Active within and through the works are a suite of artistic 'thresholding techniques' for creating affective intervals of relation to more-than-human material intensities.

The Finissage Party will feature a performance by Jasmine Guffond. Jasmine will perform a new work that responds and plays with the exhibition. Carefully working with the resonant frequencies inherent to the architecture and objects within the space, Jasmine will explore the properties of sound as a vibrational force and consequently remind us that every object and every being, contains resonant frequencies that can be activated through sound.
