Future Sound of the Waves is Schwartz Gallery’s sixth solo exhibition in a series of shows by emerging contemporary artists and Ismail Erbil’s second gallery solo show. Erbil creates sculptural environments investigating materials and spaces through their traces, echoes and by the interplay between the internal and external.
The environments that the viewers find themselves in act as conceptual vehicles for thinking, looking and experiencing materiality and non-spaces. The gallery is transformed through the use of a sculptural skin that questions the idea of context. Shifting meaning by disrupting the boundaries between art and it’s audience Future Sound of the Waves forms space though movement and transparency. Humour and an interest in the mystical, grotesque and fantastic inform actions that address making, language, sound and video to unlock sculptural and performative possibilities.
Telepathic piece on
You’ll never see my face in
Everything through the power of his mind
Carrier for wave
This is the ghost of
He tells me I am his
More silent than now
