CRAIN/LACHMAN/POLIAK respond to

Hymn/Hum: An installation by Ven Voisey

Abby Crain, Layton Lachman, and Mara Poliak are collaborators in dance and experimental performance who met in Oakland California, and have been making and touring work together in various configurations for over 6 years. 

They often source from non-human frameworks to detangle anthropocentric patterns of interaction from their surroundings, other bodies, space, and time.

Exhibition Information

Hymn/Hum
An installation by Ven Voisey
8 December 2017 – 6 January 2018

With an increasingly rampant output of information, structures, rhythms, and systems, we find ourselves in the midst of densely layered realities: from the cities we construct to the ideologies we abide by. Background noise, both figurative and literal, societal and personal, intentional and inadvertent, can dilute any particular signal making communication between chasms treacherous territory.

Aggregate Space Gallery presents sculptor and sound artist Ven Voisey with this installation of instruments and compositions that harness both signal and noise. They are reflections on observed warnings and tensions, as much as they are an attempt to transcend tumultuous makings.
