Exhibition: Voice Remainders

August 20-October 4
Richard F. Brush Art Gallery

Artist Wes Kline writes about the exhibition: "Through intervention and collaboration, the loosely related works in Voice Remainders use sound, video and photography to address the image of the voice, even as digital technologies have transformed speech and its corresponding presence into a kind of participatory algorithm. A sound installation produced in collaboration with the poet Kirsten Kaschock choreographs the performance of text-based binaries as they expand into a spatial event-community. Photographs curated from the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery’s permanent collection create an intervention into the archive itself, allowing the archive to speak, as the images double, recombine, and are shifted by a parallel textual narrative. An artist’s book reconstitutes a series of spam-bot emails as an epic poem. Throughout, I investigate the ‘remainders' of these image-voices, folding and complicating the speech-act and its image of individual and collective agency."

Wes will present a public lecture on Tuesday, September 23 at 7 pm in Griffiths 123.
