Enter the wild sound laboratory of artist Vicky Browne from exhibition Material Sound. Vicky uses materials such as vinyl records, foam, sequins, speakers, and feathers to create a range of instruments and bubbling noise machines. This workshop will engage participants in a series of hands-on experiments, group activities and artist demonstrations to playfully explore sound.
About Vicky Browne:
Vicky Browne is a New Zealand artist based in the Blue Mountains of Australia whose work engages in sound as a core theme. Browne works in a speculative manner, building her own record players, iPods, and radios out of found materials, and it is this handmade quality that reveals a close connection to materials. She completed a Master of Visual Art at Sydney College of the Arts in 2010 and her work has been exhibited in numerous spaces nationally and internationally. Her work has been exhibited in group exhibitions including Living in the Ruins of the Twentieth Century, UTS Gallery, Sydney; Sound Full: Sound in Contemporary Australian and New Zealand Art, City Gallery Wellington, New Zealand; WONDER, Hazelhurst Regional Gallery, Gymea; and It is what it is, Hawkesbury Regional Gallery, Windsor. Browne was the winner of the 2013 Fauvette Loureiro Memorial Artists’ Travel Scholarship Prize and in 2014. Browne is represented by Galerie pompom.
