Chelsea Coon performs '9:50:45' daily this week: Tuesday-Sunday

9:50:45 will be a new site-specific performance by Chelsea Coon especially created for Articulate project space.

9:50:45 will be of 6 hours duration each day: 11am - 5pm daily, Tues 21- Sun 26 March 2017, except for:
Friday 24 March: performance 1-7pm; opening 6-8pm, and
Saturday 25 March: performance will end at 3pm for:
artists' talks 25 March at 3-5pm by Chelsea Coon, Cecilia White and Nicola McLelland
 
9:50:45 is the time that two black holes collided in space on September 14, 2015. In her six day durational performance, Coon will create an installation of traces of the body's response to the space and will emphasize past, present and future time as well as focus on the body's interconnected relationship on an elemental level to manifestations in the universe
 
Coon's work explores beginnings and endings, life and death, the internal and external, and imminence of existence; collisions of space, phases, the simultaneous speeding up and slowing down of time, cycles, and the way in which the body on an elemental level is rooted to space. She has performed across North America, Europe and Asia, notably at: Tempting Failure (London, UK), CREATurE Live Art Festival (Kaunas, Lithuania), Dhaka Live Art Biennale (Dhaka, Bangladesh), PALS: Performance Art Links (Stockholm, Sweden), Water Tower Arts Festival (Sofia, Bulgaria), Experimental Room Festival (Barcelona, Spain), bridge (Bangkok, Thailand) and Art Space Tetra (Hakata, Japan) among others. She is the recipient of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant and has been a contributing writer for Big Red and Shiny. Coon lives and works in Los Angeles.

Final weekend of the music-art PLACE coming up

If you have been unable to get to the show I have curated PLACE  you still have a chance to get to it - this Friday, Saturday and Sunday are the final days of the exhibition. There are concerts this saturday and sunday as well. If you missed the first concert we are repeating it on Saturday the 17th, in it the hugely talented Timorese artist exhibiting Alfeo Sanches Pereira talks about his work with musical responses performed by Otopsy Klamar singing his powerful and poignant original songs. Along side  them Julia Ryder on cello and me on clarinets weave through the space playing works that reflect the wonderful works of art exhibited in this show, taking the audience  on a journey that cojoins the art and music. Sunday is full of surprises with the Splinter Orchestra and violinist, composer Hollis Taylor and performer, composer Margery Smith combining forces for an afternoon of improvisation, collaboration and reflections - do consider joining us and share the experience and a complimentary glass or two of wine or something softer. 

There are two sound installations in the exhibition worth spending a bit of time with, even if you can’t make the concerts, the space is open from 11am to 5pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week.

Some of the wonderful artwork of Alfeo and delicately painted mangrove roots of Meta Dos Santos Barreto are still available  for purchase, and well worth seeing. 

Hope to see you sometime over the weekend - Ros

PLACE opens Friday 3 March 6-8pm, with live performance at 6.30pm


Open: 11am - 5pm Fri - Sun, 4-19 March 2017

P L A C E explores the connections between sound, place, time and identity through visual and sound worlds. 

P L A C E  is a collaborative installation and music series organised by Ros Dunlop, that explores the visual and sound worlds of landscape, identity, indigenous roots, and the world of space and time of acoustic and artificial sound, both prepared and improvised.

P L A C E  delves into a synesthetic fusion of sound and visual, and the possibilities of each enhancing the imaginative and emotional connection to the other. Soundscapes are translated into sculptural landscapes. Visceral feelings and thoughts are expressed through both visual and musical lines, shapes and layers. 

Developing over the course of the exhibition period, the first week will be dedicated to “open studio” installation and experimentation between collaborators, followed by live performances, within the installation, of music both written and improvised. As the musicians perform each composition, the audience will be physically led through the space and a new part of the installation, a new world or landscape, revealed.

This workshop encourages students to develop a sensitivity to their immediate environment, and to engage with the building and general location in which they work. They will be supported by Articulate directors, Margaret Roberts and Emma Wise to use the space as a project space, as it was always intended. PROXIMITY participants will work in the space for 4 days, and open it to the public for the weekend.

Project space work is one of the processes we invite artists to engage in when participating in the Articulate program generally. While many artists show  exhibitions of artwork made elsewhere, the project space project program has been devised for artists who want to experiment spatially by devising and/or developing the work in the space in which it is to be shown.
