Access opens its new space on Friday 16 April at 8 PM with the launch of Raymond Boisjoly's first solo exhibition The Ever-Changing Light!
Presented in partnership with the Signal and Noise Festival, The Ever-Changing Light runs 17 April - 29 May 2010.
The Ever-Changing Light explores the conceptual and material understanding of communication. As Boisjoly articulates:
"Though there is always the possibility it could be something else, The Ever-Changing Light pairs deliberate constructions with incidental and self-generating forms to grasp the unarticulated middle beyond beginnings and the end. Live feed video projections of television static and video-based recursion stand as the visual surrogates for ill-defined and convoluted ideas concerning the situation we find ourselves in, what will never be and what is still to come–instantaneous and forever deferred.
Working from disparate sources bearing no established relation to one another, The Ever-Changing Light does not exist to redeem any mere concept. Instead, it provides a means to explore inchoate, expansive potential and existing, delimited phenomena."
Accompanying the exhibition will be the launch of a text-based public art project by Boisjoly installed on the façade of Access Gallery’s new space.
