New York-based artists Ei Arakawa and Sergei Tcherepnin, and Tbilisi-based artist Gela Patashuri are collaborating on a human-size ‘speaker' structure that will be assembled in The Showroom's exhibition space. This ‘sound room' will function both as a loudspeaker and a music studio - housing objects and materials ready for an ensemble to play a specific score. The ensemble will comprise Showroom staff and members of the gallery's local community, trained by the artists for performances on 3, 7 and 14 September. Be a speaker. So be it... evolved out of work that the group have been doing towards the establishment of a new contemporary art centre in Tbilisi. Plans for this are so far imaginary, inspiring the group to devise a music festival in 2009 and develop the project Hurt Locker Instruments at Casco, Utrecht, in 2010, as part of the project Circular Facts. The installation at The Showroom will incorporate 3D drawings and a slide show of plans for the Tbilisi Center for Contemporary Art, both based on a drawing by Gela Patashuri.
