Eugene Ughetti, Philip Samartzis

Join us for an artist talk at RMIT Gallery about Polar Force, a new project by Speak Percussion to be presented by Arts Centre Melbourne in late 2019.

Eugene Ughetti and Philip Samartzis will discuss the development of the project, which is a multi-sensorial sound performance work investigating extreme wind and temperature through hyper-realistic art.

The artists will talk about the hundreds of hours of recordings made during Samartzis’ two Australian Antarctic Arts Fellowships to underpin the work.

Dynamics of Air (14 Sept – 17 Nov) is a new exhibition curated by Malte Wagenfeld showcasing specially commissioned works by designers, creative practitioners and engineers that captures the beauty, dynamics and sensuality of air in our built environment.
