BUS PROJECTS (VIC)
Title: Utterly Silent, Utter Silence,
Utterly Something, Thinking Thinking, Utterly Listening, Utterly Umm...(s.2 ep.1)
Artists: Makiko Yamamoto
Location: Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery
Bus Projects presents the works of Makiko Yamamoto, whose practice examines the voice as a material and its potential as a medium in contemporary art. Her work investigates the position of the voice as it stands in between body and language, between subject and other. Through the absence of the body she brings a psychological reading to the voice, which infiltrates the space. Yamamoto applies these ideas as triggers for sound-based recordings, digital video and text-based works to create spatial relationships between the viewer and the site.
