Of Objects or Sound

Of Objects or Sound is a body of unchoreographed performance that is activated and influenced by objects while also considering the architecture and space surrounding the body. These 'sculptural' works combine found materials, repetitive sounds and the body to create a series that looks at the mediated performance.

Art Exhibition previously on at Anna Schwartz Gallery - Sydney in Western Australia, Australia.
From Saturday 31 May 2014 to Friday 18 July 2014

An exhibition of new video work by Gabriella Mangano and Silvana Mangano created during their recent residency in New York.

The residency was carried out at the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP), a leading non-profit, residency-based art institution for emerging to mid-career artists and curators from around the world. Founded in 1994, the ISCP has hosted over 1900 artists and curators from more than 62 countries.

Gabriella Mangano and Silvana Mangano were born in Stanthorpe, Queensland. Both studied drawing separately at the Victorian College of the Arts, coming together after their studies to work in a collaborative video practice. Their work often address the interrelation between body, time and space. It investigates notions of conceptual drawing by using body gesture or props such as fabric, chairs or window shutters to draw in space.

Recent highlights include Sculpture Sequence, a work that explored how time and space interact and resist global challenges, that was included in More Light, the 5th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, 2013. Following a two-month residency at The Arts Centre, Melbourne, the artists presented Hidden Space, Ready Stages, 2013. That site-specific installation presented immersive sounds and video works that created a portrait of the unseen spaces that power the Arts Centre. New work by the artists will be exhibited in the Tarrawarra Biennial 2014, co-curated by Natalie King and Djon Mundine.
