Robert Curgenven: Sculpting Air – The Sound Of The Sky

Robert Curgenven: Sculpting Air – The Sound Of The Sky | Thursday 22 June | National Sculpture Factory

Join artist Robert Curgenven for a live performance like no other in the atmospheric surrounds of the National Sculpture Factory. The performance will place the audience at the centre of the intricate relationship between sound and location, and between people and air, showcasing material from Curgenven’s 2016 album Climata – sculpting the air via an impressive surround sound system placed around the audience.

Climata is comprised entirely of site-specific recordings captured in 15 of American light artist James Turrell’s Skyspaces across 9 countries. Turrell’s Skyspaces are specifically proportioned chambers with an opening in the ceiling through which one can view the sky. Recorded one note at a time, the 200 recordings across 15 locations use a unique process to create a movement between each Skyspace’s interior and exterior – in effect, making the air in these spaces audible.
