Notations - Rebecca Partridge
Catalogue for the Exhibition 'Notations' at Kunstverein Springhornhof
A conversation between the artist and Jan Verwoert in English and German
56 pages, 19 colour images, hard cover
Partridge's work spans painting, film, ceramic sculpture and sound, forming a constellation exploring our relationship between ‘inside and outside'. Reflecting the artist’s experience of synaesthesia, which on some level we all have, the works explore our basic perceptual experiences as they enter into relationship with each other creating ‘cross overs and correlations’. With a distinct phenomenological approach, and an attitude of careful attention, Partridge explores the reversabilities between inside and outside; the resonances between body and landscape; between our inner subjective world and the external environment. ‘Notations’ then, refers not only to John Cage’s book of graphic scores which crosses over the languages of sound and visual form, but also to the notion of observation, the blurred boundary of subjective experience and attempts at objective recording.
The catalogue features a conversation between the artist and art critic Jan Verwoert.
