Peter Vogel in his studio in Freiburg, S-Germany in September 2009
_The sound objects of Peter Vogel blur the boundaries
between fine art and performance traditions. His works question established
relationships between sculpture and sound, seeing and hearing, the static and
the live, as well as challenging the place of sound within the historiography
of gallery spaces.
They combine the open form sensibilities of
interactive multimedia with an almost classical visual aesthetic that
emphasises clean lines, balanced forms and delicate structures. The exhibition
celebrates the work of Vogel as influential, and pioneering the emergence of contemporary
sound art practices.
This exhibition is part of Sounding Out the
Museum, a research project based at the University of Brighton which
investigates the place of sound and performance within Gallery spaces.
