Dressing The Air is the brainchild of the London-based artist Paul Schütze.

In a career spanning 30 years, Schütze has exhibited his photographic and installation works in galleries and museums around the world, released over thirty albums of original recordings, scored a number of films and performed numerous concerts. He has collaborated with artists such as James Turrell, Josiah McElheny and Isaac Julien and musicians as diverse as Bill Laswell, Raoul Björkenheim, Toshinori Kondo, Lol Coxhill and Jah Wobble.

Dressing The Air is a unique open resource that aims to enrich creative thinking by encouraging a multi-sensory approach. A constantly evolving archive and creative news feed, Dressing The Air monitors and reports on a diverse range of art-forms from cinema to sculpture, painting to furniture design, land-art to perfumery.

NOISE & whispers

Curator Martin A. Smith has put together a thoughtful selection of quite diverse works. He has also eschewed the chaos-as commentary approach for well isolated headphones in all but a couple of cases. The auditor is thus able to spend time with each work in turn, something this exhibition both demands and rewards. Stand out pieces from Bill Nelson, James Andean & Merja Nieminen (both employing deftly synchronized video) and a beautiful spacious sound work from Smith himself presented as a collaboration with a painted panel by Eléonore Pironneau. There is a good online catalog and an accompanying program of events throughout the show. GV Arts should be applauded for their continued work in promoting exhibitions which occupy the fertile zone where art and science collide. Until December the 14th.
