Grymuso // Empower

  • 6 — 28 March 2015

For March Bocs traditionally invited a guest curator to create a show dedicated to women. This year we have invited Rebecca F. Hardy to curate and she has organised a show that involves 8 women artists working in a range of media, that all explore the topics of empowerment through the exhibited work. Join us for the opening, workshop, talk, and a whole month to see the show.

Auditory Cortex

Ofn a Sain // Fear and Sound

  • 3 — 25 April 2015

The initial concept comes from the consciously hearing while experiencing fear – when hearing seems much sharper and every sound makes an impact on the entire body and mind. This is especially interesting in an evolutionary context where hearing developed from a sense we depend on for survival into a purely communicative and aesthetic sense. With this project we would like to immerse the audience into a primal experience of sound through a curated collection of art based on the mentioned theme
