AboutTaking flicker as our theme, the Kill Your Timid Notion exhibition presents two internationally renowned artists who fill DCA's huge gallery space with installations which are alive with sound and movement.
Kjell Bjørgeengen is a visual artist who works with a wide range of musicians. His intricate flicker works are an intense and mesmerising experience. Kjell (pronounced Shell) is one of the leading contemporary artists in Norway, producing impressive large scale ambitious works that transform the gallery to a theatre of flickering light.
Trained as a painter, Paul Sharits (1943-1993) moved into presenting his work in film as an attempt to translate ideas of music into a visual medium. He was one of the primary innovators of structural and avant-garde cinema which culminated in his colour âflicker' films and larger multi-projection installations. He radically pioneered the shift of film works into gallery and museum spaces. For this exhibition we will be presenting Sharits' work Epileptic Seizure Comparison (1976).
