Locate Yourself is a solo exhibition by Robert Curgenven presenting 7 multichannel sound and video works installed in embedded structures – including a maze – within the gallery space. Each of the pieces work together to highlight the different ways in which we orient ourselves and respond to location and context. The exhibition also highlights the ways in which air and weather, perception and architecture frame and affect physical experience and navigation – not only where you are but also how you engage with it when you are there.

“Curgenven makes the point that sounds are fundamental to our perception of the world… hearing the complexities of a place and time is intersected by memories of the familiar which are in turn displaced and transformed.” Realtime Magazine (AUS)

Robert Curgenven is an Australian artist living in Cork, Ireland who sculpts volumes of air with sound. His work uses sound and video as physical fields of perception to engage our physical experience of our embodiment, how our bodies’ inhabit space and the psychological shaping of time and duration by the auditory. For him sound is weather – effecting currents and microclimates within discrete architectural volumes of air and across topologies – through sound his work entreats us to feel and hear air.
