Any Dublin or Dundalk people out there? My work is going in display with the ‘Audiolise’ project. In May.
“Artistic creation is not mere decoration. The artist has to convey his inspiration to others while allowing them freedom and interpretation.”(Liu Chun Hau)
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or so one is led to believe.
Artistic endeavors are open to interpretation from each and every encounter, engagement with an art piece is mercurial. An artist may intend for one message to be conveyed but this can change recurrently upon interaction and engagement.
What if it became possible to relay interpretations of visual art sonically? How then do we consider the resulting venn diagram? This is what ‘Audiolise’ aims to do. Working with a diverse team of Irish artists, both emerging and established from all over the country, we will use their work as the starting point to dive into a world of imagination and interpretation. By utilising emerging technology as the tool to harness opinion, the exhibition is only the first stage of the process. Post-exhibition the users sonic choices will be amalgamated and analysed in order to attempt to establish an understanding of perception.
You are invited to take part in this unique project in The Basement Gallery in Dundalk on the 17th May and/or The Exchange Gallery in Dublin on the 19th of May, both for one night only. Showcasing the following artists: Sean Cotter, Susan Mc Evoy, Eoin Mac Lochlainn, Diana Muller, Erin Treacy, Ken Browne, Anne Muller and Ben Readman.
