Previously at the ICA - Exhibitions
4 Nov 2011 – 6 Nov 2011
In conjunction with Cut & Splice: Transmission music festival, the renowned sound art collective Grúpat present their first UK retrospective.
This exhibition in the ICA Studio demonstrates a wide variety of approaches to sound ranging from graphic scores to sound installations, silent musical films to sonic reliquaries, sculpture-instruments to gowns for the sonic flâneur.
From their earliest incarnation as the riotous band of anarchic pranksters known as the "Avant Gardaí", Grúpat have played on both the artistic and geographical margins of the Irish art scene, creating a body of work which is by turns joking and serious, provocative and engaging, sublime and enigmatic.
