Something Is Happening: Something Happened

I’m extremely proud to (belatedly) announce the opening of Something Happened, my first proper solo exhibition. It’s currently showing upstairs at Undegun, Regent Street, Wrexham as part of Oriel Wrecsam‘s Offsite programme.

Continuing my interest in automatism, chaos, light and sound, it references sporting rivalries, planetary systems, imperial Japanese court music and quantum mechanics, and features (amongst other things):

Approx 30 vintage West German paperclips
11 x 12″ mirror balls
8 x table-tennis balls
6 x 50W sub-woofers
4 x tennis balls
3 x oscillating desk fans
3 x 20W stereo amplifiers
2 x basketballs
2 x golf balls
2 x mini pool balls (numbers 11 & 12)
2 x slinky
2 x small glass bowls
2 x crash cymbals (1 Istanbul, 1 unbranded)
2 x Session Pro rack toms
1 x Hitachi V212 oscilloscope
1 x antique West German zither
1 x Akai 4000DS reel to reel tape recorder
1 x Technics SL-20 turntable
1 x Simda 3232 slide projector
A fragment of Larry Semon’s 1922 short film Golf (standard 8mm format)
A fragment of Gustav Holst’s The Planets (3 3/4 inch tape format – I forget which recording it is)
The likenesses of Robbie Savage and Lee Dixon.

Something Happened runs from 11 September – 4 October, and is open Thursday, Friday, Saturday 12-4pm.
What’s more, it’s FREE!

    I love it! Soothing, immersive & unsettling all at the same time. Impressively original.
