In partnership with the 18th edition of send + receive: a festival of sound, Gallery 1C03 will host "Sounding Space: Adam Basanta and Eleanor King", a two-person exhibition curated by send + receive that explores the playful relationships between sound, implied sound, and architectural space.
Basanta will present his poetic sound installation "A Room Listening to Itself" which makes audible the physical relationships between microphones, reclaimed speaker cones and the gallery’s acoustic environment. As the audience moves through the space they become part of the piece by absorbing, reflecting and generating sound which is integrated into the work. He will deliver an artist talk Sept 29 at 6:00 PM.
King will show a selection of her "Wormhole" drawings and her sculptures "Redacted Stack" and "CD Worm". Her vivid tunnel-like drawings constructed from CD tracings reference the physical magnitude of space in its abstract and concrete forms, serving as whimsical blueprints for otherworldly structures. Her sculptural works also employ sound media: CDs and their cases. King will deliver an artist talk Oct 15 at 2:00 PM.
