People who have saved this event:



Percussive Hunter is a group exhibition dedicated to the examination of processes of mattering and the sonic resonance contained by material substances, especially considering the depth of the material contingencies between the inorganic and organic, the human and nonhuman registers of the Earth that have recently gained urgency in artistic practice, among other fields of enquiry. Here, the artistic process of perception-making through mattering is employed to move away from the surface of our contemporary society, through different material strata, sonic and spatiotemporal reverberations, to foreground specific instances beyond the immediately visible. Ultimately, the exhibition entails to reach out and seek for those undercurrents, both material and immaterial, audible and inaudible, scopic and non-scopic, that allow artists to reinvent fundamental metaphors and models for relating to our present day reality, beyond surface effects and towards a more deep understanding of how matter functions.
