Ross Manning: Idling Engines
28 Nov 2020 – 26 Apr 2021
GOMA | Gallery 1.4 | Free
Ross Manning is an Australian artist who has always been fascinated by science and how things work. Through his art, he explores the relationship between humans and technology and often works with light and sound.
For this exhibition, Ross has created the sound work Idling Engines 2020, which responds to movement. This installation includes a number of small motors that have been attached to cables hanging from the ceiling. Ross has positioned the motors so that when triggered they send vibrations up and down the cables. The vibrations shake an assortment of simple materials that have been clipped onto the cables – producing a variety of sounds.
The exhibition will also feature a display of Ross’ dynamic artwork Elements Song 2020, and a filmed performance by the artist.
