Michael Prior deconstructs domestic objects and industrial aesthetics, hybridising them to create work that corrupts the familiar. ‘Headmuzak’ explores ideas of uniformity and conformity inspiring horrific conflict and fantastic perversions.
The installation utilises projection, perspex, bathroom plumbing, processed radiowaves, multiple loudspeakers, chance composition and movement via sound. Play it like a perverted instrument, a pervert, reconfigure it or force it to self destruct.
Inspired by artists such as Jean Tinguely, Len Lye, group Die Todliche Doris and pages of meaningless corporate jargon, ‘Headmuzak’ fuses jilted movement, ugly sheets of sound and a punk aesthetic to create a metaphor for a corporate CEO wearing a nappy, sucking his thumb, rocking on a plastic horse towards orgasm.
OPENING DRINKS THIS WEDNESDAY 7TH MARCH 6.30 — 8.30PM. PERFORMANCE AT 7.30.
Installation open from 8th March – 25th March, 12 to 6pm, Thurs — Sun.
