The Voyeur

About

Sean Dower is known for employing diverse media to produce physically engaging, site-specific projects. He has been presenting sculpture, photography, video, sound and live-performance internationally for over 20 years. For this exhibition Dower will construct a discrete, coherent space where objects, structures, images and performance interact in the production and modification of sound. The range of materials used in The Voyeur reflects the cultural space we live in: everyday objects — cupboards, drinking glasses, speakers, chairs, as well as photographs and sculptures - combine with the technology of sound to re-configure our environment. Dower draws inspiration from thinkers who radically question our understanding of the physical properties of the world: the magical alphabet of Elizabethan alchemist and mathematician, John Dee, influences the geometry of sound-reflecting panels, whilst Saint Simeon Stylites is the starting point for a towering and cramped platform for live performances, which the artist will undertake periodically during the exhibition. CCTV will relay these performances back down to ground level. From mysteriously vibrating cabinets and speaking walls to photographs eerily emitting sound, the visitor will be engaged in an unfolding journey of discovery, as the unexpected functions and actions of the artworks reveal themselves.”¨ During the exhibition, Dower will perform from a towering and cramped platform whilst CCTV will relay these performances back down to ground level.
