  • David Raymond Conroy

    Summer Residency 2017

    David Raymond Conroy’s compositional works investigate the performance and construction of subjectivity within shared social space. Utilising commercial display strategies, curatorial methods and theatrical staging techniques, Conroy assembles products, texts and images that position the rhetoric of fidelity in relation to desire. His live arrangements for multiple readers phase authorial presence in a counterpoint of voices that conjoin singular audibility and fractured noise. Central to the practice is this circular overlapping of production and consumption, how authenticity meets artifice in the formation of the self. David Raymond Conroy (b.1978 Reading) lives and works in Brussels and London.

    Laura Phillips’ work investigates obsolescence and precarity as narrative devices. Questions about how we come to know an object; its temperament, texture, colour, hue and smell. The work aims to explore the complexity of resonance and incongruence between sound/image, often using a mixture of photochemical processes, found sounds and digital imagery. Most recent activity includes a performance at The Nunnery Gallery in London, and a group exhibition at East Bristol Contemporary.
