Two Places Exhibition Tour

Two Places Exhibition Tour

A short video virtual tour of the Two Places exhibition in the Ormeau Baths Gallery, Belfast.

Two Places is an innovative collaboration between composers and visual artists on two simultaneous sites in Limerick and Belfast from 26 January until 1 March 2008.

Curated by Seán McCrum, the exhibition involved seven separate partnerships between composer and artist, each of which created a response to specific locations within both the 52-acre site of the University of Limerick and the single-building Ormeau Baths Gallery in Belfast.

Focused on ‘events, not static exhibits’, the projects all involved sound, moving images and objects, and were designed to respond to the stimuli provided by the interaction with visitors to the individual spaces. Interaction in one site and the resulting ‘response’ by the art work was streamed in real time to the other site using technology devised by the Sonic Arts Research Centre at Queen’s University, Belfast and Limerick’s Interaction Design Centre.

Composers and artists who took part included Michael Alcorn,Gráinne MulveyJürgen SimpsonPaul Wilson, Kieran Ferris, Barbra Freeman, Slavek Kwi, Pedro Rebelo and Anthony Kelly and David Stalling.
