This event has ended.

Wave Farm and Fridman Gallery present ONE CYCLE AHEAD a collaborative solo exhibition by Daniel Neumann and Juan Betancurth.

In this collaborative installation with objects and sound, artists Juan Betancurth and Daniel Neumann explore the overlap & the consequences between their significantly different individual practices. Neumann’s intermedia practice is mostly focused on sound, sound material and its modulation through space with temporal operations. Betancurth’s mixed media works act as loaded metaphors, provoking the viewers’ intimate desires to come to the surface as they decode each object.

In ONE CYCLE AHEAD, Neumann provides functioning speaker relics, while Betancurth applies his unique sensibility towards found materials and his ability to set found objects into an ambiguous ontological space. Re-staging and re-articulating each piece through sonic and spatial arrangements, their objects create an atmospherically charged installation that neither of the two could have predicted. It is sonically immersive, the objects are organically interrelated and with most of the sounds created on site, the artists are demonstrating a more spontaneous practice. By pushing intuitively forward rather than materializing a pre-existing idea, they retain this feeling that the work they are producing is always ONE CYCLE AHEAD of their understanding of it.
