Emerging Montreal artist Adam Basanta and Eleanor King, who is based in New York, playfully explore relationships between sound and architectural space. Basanta presents his poetic sound installation, A Room Listening to Itself, which turns the gallery into a giant resonator. King, a recent winner of the Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Prize, will show a selection of drawings and sculptures. King’s tunnel-like drawings refer to the magnitude of space in its abstract and concrete forms. Constructed from CD tracings, they create whimsical blueprints for otherworldly structures. Along with these Wormhole drawings, she presents her sculptures Record Steps and CD Worm. The show is a partnership with the send+receive sound festival.
