Julianne Swartz: Sounding Body - Listening Body
Josée Bienvenu Gallery and the Chelsea Music Festival are pleased to partner with High Line Nine for an off-site exhibition of Julianne Swartz’s Sounding Body - Listening Body. Using the acoustically reflective materials of ceramic and glass, Swartz has built a group of hybrid instruments that suggest corporeal forms. Visibly handcrafted, these vessels resemble deflated limbs, distended organs, or industrial objects that have slumped and folded in the course of their making. As an installation, the sculptures play their distinctive tones together in a composed soundscape.
Born in Phoenix, AZ, Julianne Swartz lives and works in Stone Ridge, New York. Swartz is best known for her interdisciplinary practice, which yields multisensory installations.
