Past Exhibits at The Haley Gallery

SONNENZIMMER: SHAPE SONG

June 2, 2018 – July 30, 2018

Shape Song is an exhibition of new prints and objects by Chicago-based duo Sonnenzimmer, exploring the conceptual and physical thread connecting music and graphics. With this body of work, they make the claim that music and graphics derive from the same source—surfaces. All graphics are bound to a surface whether it’s paper, a screen, or even projected light. Sound, though often associated with invisible waves flying through the air, is bound to surfaces too. If music can be described as the organization of sounds, does it follow that music is also the organization of surfaces? Experimenting with an array of graphic languages (line, shape, texture) screen printed on malleable plastics, Sonnenzimmer purposefully warp 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional space and imagine the sound it might make. This work is paired with an exploratory publication also titled Shape Song that further examines the topic through exercises in metaphor and logic. To round out the exhibit, Sonnenzimmer present two additional series of screen prints Vector Sculptures (2015) and Sides (2016).
