G is for Gallery: Installation Art

The ‘white cube’ depicts the modern gallery in negative terms. This portrayal is recycled by constructively tapping the gallery’s collective memory and speaking its volumes. As letters immerge from the walls one can actually hear the words pulse and roll to the surface G is for Gallery exhibits itself as a post conceptual place where creativity and culture historically both mesh and clash.

To explore this extraordinary story, viewers are invited to be dynamically involved. Set QR* codes + one’s Smartphone is all that is required to access a history of artists with ecological / ideological causes or tally future issues that artists may pursue.

Collaborating Music Composers:

Matthias Peitsch and Wendy Suiter

ENCODE: Performance Art by Flossie Peitsch, 2012

Tapping a gallery’s collective memory and speaking its volumes, G is for Gallery exhibits itself as the dynamic place where creativity and culture historically both mesh and clash. All this exists outside of but with the support of ‘the white cube’.

ENCODE plays with one’s idea of ‘real art’. It links canvas with technology with altered time with active place with alternative space. This is a blurring of preconceived art ideas and gallery conventions such as word versus image, sound versus sight, exclusion and inclusion, to name only a few.
