|Karen Geyer - 'Grauton' Amplifiers, 7 boxes, sound and light installation - seen here|
One of the places I missed on my recent trip to London was the new Gallery SO in Brick Lane. The gallery's focus is '...contemporary art objects and jewellery'. Recently arrived in London, the original Gallerie SO was established in Switzerland by Felix Flury in 2003. The current show Echoic Objects looks really interesting and features artists Marianne Flotron, Karen Geyer, Niamh Riordan, Strotter Inst., Annaïk Lou Pitteloud and Steve van den Bosch. Reading the exhibition statement and looking at the images, the show appears to use projection in various forms in conjunction with objects to dislocate and reinterpret form and function. There is a live sound performance on 15 October by one of the participant artists, Karen Geyer, which also looks intriguing. If anyone gets along to the show - please tell me more!
