Currents of Exchange - feedback session

  • Kudos Gallery 6 Little Napier Street Paddington, NSW, 2021 Australia (map)

Artists Kate Brown and Kath Fries will be discussing 'Currents of Exchange' and Kate's performance and sound based practice. 
Please join us for this generative feedback session, Saturday 10 June, 2-3pm. 

'Currents of Exchange' is a new project by Kate Brown, which explores the relationship between objects, how they are observed, interpreted and interacted with during vocal performance. The representation of an object can be defined by a single reality, position and cultural perspective. Object Oriented Ontology and Participation Mystique are two key frameworks relevant to the research that has influenced this current body of work.
Over the duration of the exhibition Kate has presented three vocal performances, responding to the space and the objects within it. Sound is absorbed or ricocheted via a vocal body into the gallery or object space, although some sounds notated and improvised the interaction across the space determines the vocal volume and extension or brevity. The designated parameters of each performance have been stretched alongside an unfolding of ephemeral, otherworldly and physical vocal elements, changing the pace of the work as it develops.
