Grace McMurray and Adam Gibney
The Reverberatory acts as a space in which objects are produced and are the result of technological, linguistic, domestic or societal reverberations.
Grace McMurray employs craft in her work to search for a poetic sense of order in the hive motif and the images of quilted bedspreads. She has created a domestic hive that manipulates man-made fibres into handmade objects.
For The Reverberatory Adam Gibney has created several installations that question sounds that are thought to have transcendental and sacred properties. These Transcendental Phonemes present themselves not only as objects but also as tools, blurring the boundary between function and meaning in language.
