Gary Deirmendjian’s site-specific kinetic installation ‘sensorium’ is on show in The Reflection Pool at The Concourse, Chatswood, from 4.05. – 28.05.23 as part of the public art exhibition ‘Spirit Wave’ curated by the Willoughby Council. The work is comprised of 130 custom-made flotation needles suspended in the water-body and “agitated by the movements of air and water. The first by the circulation of the natural breeze, and the latter by ripples and currents generated by the Pool’s filtration system.”
The artist says: “Just as our hair stand on end at moments of heightened awareness … as a physical manifestation enlivened by our core’s resonant response to experiences of the unexplainable, ‘sensorium’ too may be appreciated metaphorically as a gridded sensory field. a monumental device that ‘feels’ the unseen. perhaps it is the resonance of a spiritual realm that it senses, the residue vibrations of our universe’s birth that binds all things great and small, and us in between …”
The exhibition takes place across Art Space on The Concourse and The Concourse Outdoor Area, and seeks to explore spirituality in a diverse and contemporary world. Read more.
