About

Chair is a project that sees the Free Space Gallery and the Art Shed full of noise and sculpture created as a collaboration between artists Dot Young Greg Fisher and Pavel Legonkov. Chair focuses on this most everyday yet hugely important and symbolic objects and fits into the larger Aurality of Objects project. Aurality of Objects is an investigation into the production of objects in relation to the ‘aural waste expended during the fabrication process. The work explores how this previously wasted by-product might relate to the identity of objects and how we understand and interact with them. It questions whether objects might carry within them some trace of their creation noise, perhaps as a memory, and whether this could have some bearing on the final state of an object's existence. Could the energy expended during their conception have any relation to how we perceive them? What if we were able to become aware of this energy, and hear it? What would each object's birth noise sound like and would it offer us a more holistic understanding of the object? Would being sensitized to these echoes of fabrication foster a responsibility for the objects manufacture on a more visceral level? The work explores the dynamism between these visual and aural outcomes.
