On UK shores for the first time, visual and sound artist Ross Manning is an illustrious figure in the Australian art world whose background in improvised music and noise has led him to create kinetic sound sculptures which function as automaton prose. In an exciting new collaboration the meeting of London based sound stalwarts Dan Hayhurst (Sculpture) and Graham Dunning promises an onslaught of deteriorated beats and hissing analogue machines. Expanded cinema and sound artist Sally Golding presents shifting hallucinogenic sonified light fields, and UK electronic music producer Spatial fills in the cracks providing noisy and dancey DJ delights.
Unconscious Archives (UA) is a live performance series foregrounding an artistic discourse examining the synergies and dissimilarities which define both live film and sound art. UA aims to generate a responsive curatorial platform for artist film works which are performative or expanded in nature, alongside sound works by sonic artists whose work encompasses visual or sculptural elements.
