ROOMARTSPACE will be transformed by an acoustic installation in felt that disrupts the relationships between our senses. The convoluted, labyrinthine surface of this work creates a semi-anechoic effect, a ‘sound vacuum’ and a strong tactile and visual presence. The material used is felt shoddy, a low-grade, absorbent material made of recycled textiles that usually remains hidden but is resonant with memory. A blind singer, Victoria Oruwari, will sing at various times during the exhibition to a score by composer John Matthias, made in response to the work.
In an adjacent space will be shown a companion piece, ‘Listening Object’, a disorientating micro-installation for the head.
Opening Thursday - Saturday 12:00 - 18:00
