Resonant Bodies is an exhibition about the sonic reflections between bodies and their environments.
In Orality and Literacy, Walter Ong suggested, “sight isolates, sound incorporates… whereas sight situates the observer outside what (they view), at a distance, sound pours into the hearer”.
For Resonant Bodies, six artists have created new sound-based works that respond to Ong’s provocation – revealing aspects of identity and experience that are obscured by sight’s dominance. Featuring Aliya Pabani, Chandra Melting Tallow, Cheldon Paterson, Jon Tjhia, Kaija Siirala and Phoebe Wang.
