Heinz Riegler and Sandra Selig
27 September 2018
Join Heinz Riegler and Sandra Selig for MONO 29, a free program of sound at the IMA presented in partnership with Room40.
United in their interest in spatial practices, Riegler and Selig each independently create works that resonate between space, time, and sound for this evening of performances.
Austrian born artist Heinz Riegler creates an evolving sound space that folds into itself, building on his Sources Of Uncertainty work, original debuted at Gallery 5020 in Salzburg in 2017. Part performance, part installation, this piece evolves in unexpected ways; pulling both the listener and the performer through the space.
Sounds and live performances run in parallel with Sandra Selig’s art practice. For MONO 29, she builds on recent sonic explorations within her visual installations, drawing on the potential of repetitive patterns and oscillations. Selig uses string and thread, video loops of natural phenomena, pendulums and light, inspired by orbital traces, wind and gravity.
Heinz Riegler is an ARIA Music Award-winning Austrian born artist working between Australia and Europe. First emerging as a songwriter and performer in the late 1980s, Riegler has since expanded his output across video, installation, and visual art.
Brisbane-based Sandra Selig is known for her sublime site-specific installations, where threads strung through the gallery space suggest weightless ephemeral geometric forms. She often uses a range of everyday materials including string, straws, paper, polystyrene balls, and flyscreen mesh. Her practice also extends into sound, through her independent work and as a member of electronic duo Primitive Motion.
