EXHIBITION March 22-24
R.R.R. is a multi-media project and exhibition of sound and image presented by the Art History and Studio in Dialogue class at Western University. The project started with the concept of the gesture. Three independent groups – Remnants, Residues, and Reminders – will use the Satellite Project Space as an art laboratory for the development, experimentation, documentation and presentation of solo, collaborative, and interactive works. The exhibition will present diverse works as remnants, residues, and reminders of actions, interactions, and events.
Remnants focuses on the removal of objects and sound from natural and urban environments and recontextualizes them in an imaginary space. This gesture speaks to the absurdity and impossibility of representing a location and explores the juxtaposition of natural environments with constructed conditions.
Residues uses a methodological rather than a thematic approach. Separate works draw attention to questions of identity and visibility, sound and listening, experience, space and time through acts and events including performance, interactions, collaborations, and installation. Media and materials are its residual elements.
Reminders explores different forms of absence over place and time using sound and image that relate to memories, dreams, and emotions. Forgettable and unnoticeable happenings, segmented memories and feelings of absence will be present as reminders in the form of videos, painting, and installations.
The gallery space will be in constant flux, changing in form and presentation throughout a 10-day period, culminating in a closing reception on Saturday, March 24th.
Satellite Project Space is a dynamic partnership between three significant London, Ontario, arts institutions: Fanshawe College, Museum London, and Western University. The mandate of Satellite is to provide a flexible space for new and temporary projects, collaborations, and experiments in the arts and culture.
