Artists in this exhibition: Florian Hecker


Florian Hecker
12 February – 28 March 2010
Preview Thursday 11 February, 6.30 – 8.30pm


Chisenhale Gallery is pleased to announce a major solo exhibition by Florian Hecker, his first in a UK public institution, comprising a newly commissioned sound piece presented at Chisenhale Gallery, London and IKON Gallery, Birmingham. Hecker explores old and new systems of creating and working with sound, employing idiosyncratic psychoacoustic propositions in order to examine and disrupt spatial perception. Working in performance, studio and installation, the artist frequently collaborates with academic researchers in auditory perception and computer music, as well as with other artists such as Russell Haswell, Carsten Höller and Cerith Wyn Evans.

Hecker’s new commission for Chisenhale Gallery continues his exploration of sound in relation to the body, architecture and perceived space. Here, the artist will present a series of four independent, computer generated, sound works. These pieces will be installed so as to create a parcours that will lead the visitor around the gallery space.

Carefully choreographed, each work will generate over time, creating various auditory configurations that, at moments, coalesce into a single overall sonic environment. The display of loudspeakers – either suspended from the ceiling on metal rods or wall-mounted – creates an amalgamation of auditory and visual perception, instating an invisible architecture within the gallery, where boundaries are demarcated by the transitions between one sound work and another.

Hecker was born in 1975 in Kissing, Germany. He has presented his work internationally including most recently at the 53rd Venice Biennale (2009); The Morning Line, Youniverse, 3 Bienal Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo de Sevilla, Spain; Mori Art Musuem, Tokyo, Japan; Manifesta 7, South Tyrol, Italy, 2008; Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville, Paris, France, 2006. Forthcoming exhibitions for 2009-10 include BAWAG Contemporary, Vienna, Austria; Evento, Bordeaux, France; and MMK: Museum of Modern Art, Frankfurt, Germany.
