Presented by BLEACH*

Listen intently as BLEACH* artist-in-residence, composer, and curator Lawrence English, uses installation, and found objects to create an interlocking, acoustic-led microcosm across multiple projections at North Burleigh.

Drawing from soniferous materials found within the local environment, Boulevard Of Shells is an invocation to the latent sound of objects. The piece draws forth the whispered and unheard. Experience a subtle world of secret sound, perceived, interceded and projected by master sonic medium, Lawrence English.

Lawrence English is an artist, composer and curator based in Australia. Working across an array of aesthetic investigations, English’s work explores the politics of perception and prompts questions of field, perception and memory. English utilises a variety of approaches including visceral live performance and site-specific installation to create work that invites audiences to consider their relationship to listening, place and embodiment. Over the past decade he has worked with sound as a medium for embodied experience and is determined to share his interests in the transformative and sensorial transgressive possibilities of sound. He is a Sidney Myer Creative fellow, was awarded an outstanding doctorial thesis award in conjunction with his PhD in 2017 and has been supported by the Mike Kelley Foundation for his public artwork project in Los Angeles, Seirá.
