EXHIBITION Oliver Mezger: "AABA BBAB" - as part of NEoN Digital Arts Festival.
2 - 27 November
Oliver Mezger makes work that explores the instability of our minds to recall and remember. He is interested in questioning contemporary cultures dependancy on temporal methods of recording. Mezger finds fluid ways to both capture the legacy of our ‘physical traces’ and the impact of our ‘character’ in time. Making viewing a process of active interpretation, his performances provoke emotions and through the subtle rhythmic combination of image and sound sources he explores a kind of reverie. Mezger uses a variety of media - 16mm film, digital video, slides, flick-books, knitting, concrete poetry, soundscapes and musical collaborations.
4 November, 7 – 10pm (event kicks off at 7.20pm) Bonar Hall, Park Place, Dundee, DD1 1PB. Tickets: £5 - Must be booked in advance (to pay ondoor, click ‘Show other payment options’ under the 'Order Now’ button when booking ticket). Further Information and bookings online at Creative Dundee
