Swedish-Australian artist Owen Armour works at the tense edge of sound and sculpture with as starting point the visualization and physicality of sound and how material objects – human or non-human affect the soundscapes that surrounds us. He welds these mediums into an indistinguishable third mode. Armour is interested in subtle acoustics changes in space, both real and imaginary. He also experiments with pressure as he uses his body to mold materials like concrete, ceramics and metal. “All vibrating – none silent.”

Support: Owen Armour's residency is made possible with support from Statens Kunstfond, Denmark (Danish Arts Foundation).
