Memory Flows

The Field, 'Headwater', live audiovisual performance @ Memory Flows opening launch

15 May – 20 June 2010

The Memory Flows exhibition involves a range of approaches to artmaking that stream together to make an integrated but textured whole. All of the artists share certain themes and concerns — around rivers, streaming, collaborating, and encountering audiences in new ways. The exhibition venue, the Armory Gallery, is 500 sqm former explosive storehouse on the southern banks of the Parramatta River, and provides an ideal backdrop for works exploring the nature/culture nexus.

The project is an interdisciplinary collaboration: the artists come from different practices (including new media, sound, media arts and performance) but share a concern with the environment. Their approaches vary, however, and they use a range of tactics — from play and humour, to locative and mobile mediated practices, to the poetic. All of the artists are highly experienced and have participated in major interdisciplinary media arts festivals and events.

Presented in partnership with the Centre for Media Arts Innovation, University of Technology, Sydney.

Curated by Norie Neumark, Deborah Turnbull and Sophia Kouyoumdjian.

fbi radio interview

Last week I did a radio interview on fbi’s Sunday Night at the Movies show, talking about the upcoming gig at the Sound of Failure festival. Chris Caines did a great live audio set previewing our performance and Matt Rochford played some fantastic tracks, including work by himself and the Sound of Failure curator, Greg Shapley.
