'The exhibitions in Around 2015 feature artists Chelpa Ferro, Eli Keszler, Feng Hao, Jacob Kirkegaard, Rie Nakajima, Phoebe Hui, and Sergei Tcherepnin. Experimental interventions are at the core of these artists' practices. One can see influences from movements such as Dada, Fluxus, Post-Modern and Relational Art, where individual expression is informed by conceptual strategies. Media and technology merely act as a palette of tools and materials that directly reflects or dissects our culture, identities, social and domestic concerns. Labour, craft, and form come after concept. While maintaining active relationships between disciplines, these artists focus on sound as concept and medium, as well as manifesting materiality through the sonic presence. The works are a snapshot of exploratory ideas, which we hope will bring a sensitivity to our relationship with each other, our identities, the environment, or simply overlooked moments of our everyday life.' – Aki Onda & Helen Homan Wu

About Around sound art festival 2015:

Examining the contemporary phenomena of sound art, the fifth edition of the Around sound art festival, Around sound art festival 2015 seeks to uncover the multi-layered range of perspectives by showcasing the artistic process behind concepts dealing with sound. The exhibitions bring together local and international artists, each with a very distinct set of language, tools and techniques used in resonating their ideas. Aside from the exhibition, through performances, workshops and talks, we attempt to break down assumptions that audiences might have on the definition of sound art.
