Bodies of Water
Xpace Gallery, Toronto (CA)
January 5 - February 4, 2017
Off of the east coast of Sicily, lowered into the depths of the the Mediterranean Sea, is a hydrophone. It listens 24 hours a day, 7 days week. This source provides material for Bodies of Water, a low-frequency audio installation pushing the thresholds of perceptibility, through sound and body, to ask: What are the limits of what we can sense? How do we relate to a body that is not our own? How do we relate to a soundscape we do not inhabit?
The artist acknowledges the support of the Ontario Arts Council for this exhibition.
