+ROOM-ROOM is a pair of sound installations for two adjacent galleries at Seattle’s Henry Art Gallery. Yann Novak and Jamie Drouin individually explore how the perception of these familiar places is transformed by sound. Through contrasting sensory experiences, the installations create an experiential divide between the two virtually identical rooms and restructure notions of architectural solidity and singularity in favor of more flexible, intuitive perceptions. The aural compositions, based on actual ambient noises recorded in the galleries, turn attention onto the spaces themselves and encourage us to rethink the ways in which we process physical location, and create assumptions about our surroundings.


released February 7, 2009

+ROOM-ROOM was organized by Henry Associate Curator Sara Krajewski. The exhibition is generously supported by ArtsFund and the Patrons of the Henry Art Gallery. In kind support provided by Tannoy.
