Almost and Embrace.
Video Documentation on the way.
20 Streams of water fall from the ceiling of a gallery. Touch them.
Words from the Gallery:
A dazzling installation that explores our relationships with sound, light and water has arrived at Wagga Wagga Art Gallery for the summer. Almost an embrace is a unique site-specific sound and video installation by local multi-disciplinary artist Vic McEwan, open to the public from Saturday 6 December.
For this cutting edge new work, created especially for the Margaret Carnegie Gallery exhibition space, visitors will be treated to an amazing interactive water installation that exists as a sculpture, a musical instrument, and an interactive light, video and sound environment. With Almost an embrace, Vic McEwan transforms the gallery into a wonderland, allowing people to engage with water in a way that encourages connection and playfulness.
Video and sound fill the space in response to the viewer’s actions and the flow of hundreds of litres of water. Almost an embrace entices visitors to engage with arms outstretched, and the viewer is the missing link – your interaction with the water is required to close the circuit and spring the installation into life.
