Experimental Sound Sculptures using found sound on the streets of Manchester and critique of the ocularcentrism of Marc Auge.
In the contemporary society, where the concepts of ocularcentrism and homogeneity prevail, this work uses aurality in an attempt to provide a new perspective to look into what we normally take for granted and bring forward the significance of the sonic environment.
Experimental Image and Sound installation on issues of identity
The project Becoming Real includes two images accompanied by and two different and distinct soundscapes. The images will be printed onto a canvas, and wall mounted for a more immersive visual effect, which will be enhanced by the audio accompanying each piece.
Chemaine is an independent artist, facilitator and community arts' coordinator. Constantly redefining the boundaries of her artistic practice as her work moves between dance, theatre and visual arts, often durational, site responsive and improvised; with a keen interest inclusive cross-art form collaboration, at the heart of Chemaine’s work is a deep interest in the physical body and the physical experience of the audience.
In her first research residency dance 'Gentle', Chemaine reflects on the nomadic style of her artistic past by working with found objects from a found box and asking 'can I actually make this?'. At the same time Chemaine will invite Bradford residents and gallery visitors on contribute to an installation of photo miniatures that aim to celebrate the self and strength of unity.
