ISOLATIONROOM/GALLERYKIT: new dates

Owen Armour: En gang runt sin egen axel

NEW DATES!
December 6 - 31, 2013

 September 16 - October 10, 2013
Opening Reception: September 16, 6pm-8pm

Copenhagen based acoustic artist Owen Armour often records silence, that is, the ambient sounds he finds in sublime landscapes, like a recent project in Greenland Traces of Pressure, 2013. Records from his journey are incorporated into sculptures and play out in an infinite loop. The Recordings are primarily made as a search for a silence, not for sounds per se, in a place so desolate only the foolhardy venture. For his show at Isolation Room, Armour takes recordings from inside a version of the Gallery Kit (constructed in Copenhagen over the 2013 summer) and replays them in the original construction built in St Louis. For Armour silence is often beyond reach, a phantom, a copy and a facsimile. Here silence is a record of the sound produced inside one volume playing inside another physical volume then cancelled out, cubed and dubbed over.
