“It’s only when we break open the system that it becomes a creative space” – Jill Rock
Graphic scores for free interpretation, performances, interactive events throughout the month of February, as Hundred Years Gallery transforms itself into an audio visual workshop space for the unseen, unheard underground, moving from the aesthetic into the politics of gender in art.
“Take 12 regular pentagons and 20 regular triangles;
construct a regular icosidodecahedron mirrored internally
remove 1 pentagon
the symmetry broken reveals a chaotic mass
the auditory resonance unexpected waiting to be explored”
Hundred Years Gallery extends an Open invitation to sound and visual artists to the Dron sound festival to play with the chaos of the broken form.
“Like the mysterious theft of a boat on a winter’s night, these scores have nothing to do with academic orthodoxy, they are maps or recipes for generating creative activity in the cracks between art and music¨ - Graham MacKeachan
