At the UMF Art Gallery September 20th through November 4th

(Farmington, ME) There will be an opening reception for the exhibit on Thursday, September 20th from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. New York-based sound and video artist Liz Phillips is a pioneer in sound art, creating responsive environments with new technologies for more than 40 years. Her past collaborators include the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Nam June Paik, Yoshi Wada and Simone Forti, among many others.

In her site-specific installation, Biyuu II, the artist collaborates with butoh dancer Mariko Endo Reynolds to create an interactive visual soundscape that responds to and transforms the natural actions of wind and water. Sensors trace the air currents outside the gallery and movement inside as people pass through the space, activating sounds and luminous imagery. The title, Biyuu, is a Japanese onomatopoetic word describing the sound of wind through bamboo. There will be daily scheduled interactions from 2:30-3:00 pm Tuesdays through Sundays; viewers are also invited to perform/interact during all gallery hours.

Liz Phillips will present an artist’s talk, The Resonance of Weather, at 11:45 on Wednesday, October 31st at the Performance Space, Emery Community Arts Center. On Friday, November 2nd at 11:45 am, she will participate in Sound, Place, and Performance, a panel discussion with author/critic Josh Kun and musician Omar Tamez, also at the Performance Space at the Emery Community Arts Center.

This exhibition is made possible by the generous support of the David Bermant Foundation. The exhibition is a component of Sonitus: A Sound Studies University Forum at the University of Maine Farmington.

The UMF Art Gallery is located at 246 Main Street in Farmington, behind the Admissions Office. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm and by appointment. For more information or to make an appointment, please contact Sarah Maline at maline@maine.edu or call the gallery at 207-778-7002.
