While Interwoven Echoes Drip into a Hybrid Body – an Exhibition about Sound, Performance and Sculpture

 

In recent times the use of sound has precipitated an increased fusion between performance art and sculpture, resulting in the emergence of new hybrid forms. These new forms not only question traditional sculpture by expanding conceptual boundaries, they also liberate sound from its peripheral status as a prop for performance and video art. The works displayed in the exhibition continue with the new “crossover” consciousness of the 1990s and demonstrate the hybridity and diversity of these forms.
