Over one weekend in October, Liquid Architecture Sydney will bring together leading contemporary practitioners working to explore acts of speaking, listening and sounding. Language as a system (social, textual, material) which may be disrupted, re-read, re-heard and potentially re-thought, is the central interest for many of these investigations. The artists ‘sound’ questions — philosophical, political, aesthetic — about music and experiment; about art and the art market; legacy and friendship; and the conditions under which these are made possible. In addition to this, we will be periodically imploding a set of oil drums in the COFA courtyard.
FEATURING: Alessandro Bosetti, Amanda Stewart, Astrid Lorange, Douglas Kahn, Eric Demetriou, Emile Zile, Hard Hat, Hong-Kai Wang, ID M Theft Able, Jim Denley, Makiko Yamamoto, Matthew Hopkins, Rick Rue, Ur 1st Luv
In partnership with Sound and Materials, UNSW Art and Design. Co-curated with Caleb Kelly
Liquid Architecture is an Australian organisation for events, exhibitions, performances and situations of the world’s leading artists working with sound.
Once a “sense-specific” festival, interested in listening and the depth of individual sound perception, Liquid Architecture is broadening its focus of concern to engage the social, cultural, political, economic as well as aesthetic frameworks in which sound takes place.
Now in its 15th year, Liquid Architecture’s 2014 festival program brings together work from across a range of disciplines to audiences in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Singapore. Marking the new direction driven by curators Joel Stern and Danni Zuvela is the festival’s focus on social and conceptual questions, signalling a more sustained engagement with the discourse, sound and practices of contemporary art.
This is a move into the investigation of the audible as an expression of the myriad, sometimes inaudible forces enframing, encoding, describing and producing what we hear – whether that is considered music, sound, or noise.
