I am here with Professor William Furlong at Laure Genillard…

William Furlong – Possibility & Impossibility of Fixing Meaning @ Laure Genillard – Open until 09 Apr

A barrage of disconnected conversation and out of context speech.

This show is made up of four ‘sound frames’ – which each consists of a grid of 12 speakers suspended by wires.

Each speaker plays out snippets of interviews taken from Furlong’s extensive archive re-edited into a jabbering multi-channel composition.

Furlong became one of the giants of tape recording after he founded Audio Arts Cassettes in 1973.

Audio Arts was a radical audio based arts magazine combining recordings of audio artworks with artist and curator interviews.

Contributors included, Andy Warhol, Anish Kapoor, Joseph Beuys, Gilbert & George, Yoko Ono, R. Buckminster Fuller, Hermann Nitsch, Mario Merz, Gerhard Richter, Nam June Paik and WB Yeats.
