|Uwe Bressnik and Keith Rowe are two extraordinary artists with very different origins, background and poetics, but with an intense interest in the visual representations of sound and music that somehow connects them. Both are active as improvising musicians and so well-aware of the processual nature of sound. To catch its ephemeral essence in a stable image or object is always tricky. But not for Uwe Bressnik and Keith Rowe! They offer us playful and visually attractive assemblages where image and sound coexist in conceptual consensus.
The way that they achieve this harmony varies from work to work, and employs different means and forms of representation-immanence, semblance, delusion, visual pun, or associative narration. Their inventive images show apparent stylistic identity but never tire. They force us to perceive and contemplate at the same time.
The exhibition features Uwe Bressnik`s gramophone record variations and exaggerations, mute sound objects, and Keith Row`s narrative paintings, auto-referential prints (potential scores) and hanging guitar assemblages.
