Exhibition Details | George Khut: Contemplative Interactions
25 October – 9 November 2019
An exhibition of interactive and participatory artworks by pioneering new media artist George Khut.
Exploring the connections between thinking, feeling and being, Contemplative Interactions brings together two layered and deeply meditative electronic artworks. Khut’s works are intimate body-focused artwork experiences that use immersive electronic soundscapes and visuals which respond to moment-to-moment changes in participating audiences’ nervous systems. Continuing his long-standing fascination with mind and body-focused contemplative practices Khut invites us to reflect on the creative and transformative potential of artworks that trace the quality of our attention, breathing and emotional orientation.

ABOUT THE EVENT
Join us for the tactile tour followed by a short ceramics workshop at the exhibition Trace of Wreckage by Dai-Rong Lee.
Taiwanese Artist Dai-Rong Lee is the tenth exchange artist to visit Fremantle for the Asialink exchange between Fremantle Arts Centre and the Taipei Artists Village.
Working in ceramic sculpture, Dai-Rong’s work is often self-consciously sensual and fleshy, focused on the human body as a hybrid form.
Trace of Wreckage is a response to the aesthetic and cultural shift from Taipei to Fremantle and an investigation into local materials and techniques.
