Richard Garet
Electrochroma
Saturday, September 25, 2010
to Sunday, November 28, 2010
Opening Reception:
Saturday, September 25
6–10pm

The Invisible Dog Art Center
Co-presented with The Invisible Dog Art Center

   
 
 

Sound and visual artist Richard Garet explores aural and visual spatial-contexts, relational structures, process, materiality, function, and form. Electrochroma is an audiovisual experiential installation that will be shown hourly in a specially built room at Brooklyn’s Invisible Dog Art Center. The piece is comprised of kinetic light projections derived from processed 16mm film, and a multichannel sonic presentation including overtones, textures, and electronic sounds moving through space that generate physical and psychoacoustic responses.

Richard Garet Bio
Richard Garet works interweaving multiple media including moving image, sound, live performances, and photography. He completed his MFA at Bard College, and was awarded a New York State Council on the Arts Grant. He currently has an artist residency at ISSUE Project Room, NY, and previously completed a residency at Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, Scottsdale, Arizona in 2006. Recent exhibitions and performances include: Never Can Say Goodbye at the former Tower Records Store; Sonochrome: an exhibition of recent works by Richard Garet, at the Public Trust Galllery, Dallas, Texas; Leervoll, Diapason Gallery; and previous exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA), Barcelona, Spain; Biennial Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico, San Juan, Puerto Rico; El Museo del Barrio, NYC; and more. His sound compositions have been published through sound based labels such as And-Oar, Non Visual Objects, Winds Measure Recordings, Unframed Recordings, Con-V, Leerraum, White_Line Editions, and Contour Editions. Additionally Garet co-curates with Louky Keijsers Koning, the monthly performance event LMAKseries, which integrates film, video, sound art, and media performance into the gallery's mission at LMAK Projects in the L.E.S, NYC. Garet also currently directs the independent media label Contour Editions publishing works that explore the various possibilities of sound and light. Richard Garet is interested in the phenomena found and produced in time-based media, and human beings' relationship with both artificial and natural environments. His audiovisual exploratory steps are focused on concept and function, material and process, listening, viewing, and experience. Even though Garet’s work suits the standard gallery setting, many of his other activities as an artist explore the various practices of experimental sound and video performance. All of these modes are additional ways in which Garet’s work exposes the audience to real time explorations of audiovisual processes, emphasizing the experiential, the sensorial, and the active-reception of the body and mind. Richard Garet states, “when creating a piece I reflect on what the work is meant to accomplish, how it functions in relationship to the space, how it affects the audience, and how sound and visual content are connected to one another. These questions determine my choices and influence the direction of the work.
