Chinese Arts Centre is proud to present two different site-specific sound installations by local artist Angie Atmadjaja. We will be splitting our nine week exhibition period to showcase these two exciting installations, where the audience will find themselves completely immersed within the transformed gallery space. Angie?s dependent audio installations explore the fluid yet sensitive relationship between the audio waves that continually surround us and the day-to-day sounds that we can always hear. The audience will experience subtle changes in the volume and depth of sound as they move around the space, as their movement in the gallery alters the sound.
Angie?s works usually consist of minimal audio-visual installations. By creating a space with minimal visuals and audio she challenges the audience to focus solely on the subtle changes in the sound triggered by their presence in the space.
Both of the works, Intrinsic and Structure, emphasise the impact of our presence and movement in relation to the space. Intrinsic is a site dependent audio and light installation, which reacts sensitively to sound vibrations. Visitors will be able to alter the brightness of the lights hanging within the space by moving around the gallery. Structure is an audio installation, in which an invisible sound landscape is created by locating the audio peak and null point (the specific points in a room where sound vibrations can and can?t be heard) within the space. Sounds disappear and reappear when you move around the room. A designated walking path will act as a guide for the visitor to experience the audio landscape.
Born in Jakarta, Indonesia, Angie studied composition under Daryl Runswick at Trinity College of Music in London. She is currently finishing her PhD, developing her sound composition portfolio which looks specifically into sound installations that use acoustic as their basic components. She is currently working and living between London and Manchester.
During the nine week exhibition period, both Angie herself and local interactive sound artist Amanda Belantara will be hosting a number of public events to coincide with the two installations on display. For more information on about events with either artist just check out our website!
