a sound installation by tarab/eamon sprod.
Curated by Aneta Trajkoski.
TCB stairwell 29 July – 15 August 2015.
Threshold is a newly curated platform for sound artists to realize projects in curious spaces outside the gallery context. The first in this series sees Melbourne artist tarab (Eamon Sprod) create egress a site-specific sound installation in the TCB entrance stairwell.
tarab intercepts the dark and narrow route between the outside laneway and inside gallery space with sounds drawn from this path. Multiple channels and sound sources are configured to resonate surfaces and oscillate the stairwell, provoking the materiality and structural tendencies of the vertical space.
egress sonifies the stairwell, teasing out half-narratives, visceral sensation, false leads and heightened awareness. The installation seeks negotiation of the space and the sensations it pervades.
tarab composes a passage where ends become beginnings and boundaries are traversed. egress points to a perpetual liminal process of the heard and the unheard, the inside and out, the past and the present.
