AARON TAYLOR KUFFNER : THE GAMELATRON URBAN SANCTUARY

OPENING FRIDAY OCTOBER 2nd, 7PM-10:30PM

The Chimney NYC is pleased to present The Gamelatron Urban Sanctuary by Aaron Taylor Kuffner. With his sonic kinetic sculpture Gamelatron Cemerlang (Indonesian: Bright, Slang: Bling), Kuffner turns an Indonesian folk object, the gong, into “bling”, and re-contextualizes the ancient archaic ritual tradition to envelop the audience with his sculptures. The artist uses exhibitions of the Gamelatrons to create sanctuaries both in public and private spaces. He views the body of the work as an offering to the observer.
