I spent yesterday evening at The Showroom gallery, drawing as we listened to a sound piece from Graeme Thomson and Silvia Maglioni.
It took forever getting ready to exist: UIQ (the unmaking-of) - non-existent film by Felix Guattari
In the artists' words:
“A small community of envisionaries are invited to inhabit a zone of autonomous temporality where they become the hosts, receivers and transmitters of UIQ, contaminating each other in turn with their own visions and ideas of Guattari’s film and of UIQ’s possible manifestations, both within and beyond its limits.”
The soundwork recombines fragments of recordings of these “seeances” in a composition of myriad voices and electronic signals, elements that circulate in the Showroom gallery space, offering visitors glimpses of a missing film and universe that, though invisible, may begin to affect their own vision.
