Nest…..as a hiding place in the sky | Kelsey Braun
March 8 - April 5Free
Artist presentation by Kelsey Braun
Thursday April 4, 7- 9 pm
Kelsey will present materials related to the exhibition through a hybrid performance / artist talk, followed by a play-through of the immersive audio installation. Audience may come and go as they please.
Nest…..as a hiding place in the sky considers space as an illusion, as that which shifts between the perceivable and the peripheral—we can often hear the birds but cannot see the nest. Constructed from a foundation of sound extracted out of field recordings, foley, found-audio and gestures of sonic improvisation, this work is a multi-channel composition for a room. Nest…. intends on establishing an ocean of vibration where time and space are nudged towards an obtuse and poetically shifting experience. Speakers dispersed throughout the gallery underline one’s sense of proximity and complement the room’s physical material—in some cases transmitting sound from within the building itself. Nest…. encourages a heightened sense of hearing, relating the aural to architecture, social space and memory.
Kelsey gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the Manitoba Arts Council, the Winnipeg Arts Council, and Video Pool Media Arts Centre.
