AboutOn Friday 25th January, Anarch gallery invites you to explore an experiential installation contained within the Harmattan Cluster exhibition. As part of the gallery's recent collaboration with artists Halhead and Kerr, the ephemeral nature of sound will be placed in confrontation with the materiality of its presence. This specially commissioned multimedia experience will unite sculpture, print, and performance, to fully realise a unique interpretation of audiovisual art. Taking measure of the gallery's architecture, digitally manipulated vibrations will be juxtaposed with analogue mechanisms to direct and question the audience's bodily responses. With the innate temporality of the presentation actively resisting documentation, this promises to be a memorable confrontation with the subjectivity of sound and a study of mankind's on-going dedication to experimenting with its potential.
Halhead and Kerr have worked previously as members of Solina Hi-Fi and under multiple pseudonyms. Their work is frequently executed as a medium to explore the processes of creativity itself, drawing inspiration from connections and collaborations. In questioning the qualities of materiality and affect, the Harmattan Cluster sound installation will provide insight into the permeable nature of physical boundaries and the untold frequencies that move through them.
