|Description||The Sound of Shadows: Peter Vogel Exhibition is preceded by a symposium which draws upon issues relating to the body, sound and space. Talks from leading artists and academics in the fields of sound art and sculpture will present a contextualised framework in which to engage and reflect upon relations between sound and space, the object and the spectator, the tangible and the ephemeral in the works of Peter Vogel as well as across the multivaried practices within the field of sound art.
Guest speakers include sound artist Derek Shiel, Dr Nye Parry, Dr Kersten Glandien, David Toop and Max Eastley.
The symposium is presented by the Arts Performance and Practices Research Initiative (APPRI) at the University of Brighton in association with The Sound of Shadows Peter Vogel Exhibition and The Faculty of Arts' Sounding Out the Museum research group.
The exhibition features a significant number of Vogel’s important works including the two innovative and interactive large-scale works, the Sound Wall and the Shadow Orchestra. These will form the core of the exhibition that will also include smaller sound and light kinetic sculptures. Peter Vogel’s works are difficult to categorise, they demonstrate a breakdown of the boundaries across practices within fine art and performance traditions and question established relationships between sculpture and sound, seeing and hearing, the static and the live, as well as challenging the place of sound within the historiography of gallery spaces. They refuse to align with any single artistic movement yet resonate with the aims of so many.
Admission: Open to public
