“Don’t play what’s there. Play what’s not there. Play the void. Play the white space. Play outside the frame.”
Miles Davis

In 1985, the artist and composer Christian Marclay released the LP ‘Record without a cover’. As the album’s title indicates the vinyl was distributed without a protective sleeve and through the course of its transit, from warehouse to turntable accumulated scratches on the surface that would become integral to the works formation, key acoustic elements determining the listener’s experience. Marclay embraces the din. His chance derived score brings to our conscious awareness that which we habitually eliminate as noise. The classical anthropomorphic point of view gives way to an experience of ‘nature’s manner of operations’ articulated in the clicks and pops which interrupt the track’s transmission.

In a similar way ‘Anywhere Out of the World’ brings together a group of artists working nationally and internationally who are united in their exploration of the generative possibilities of noise and the significance of indeterminacy in the artwork’s formation. All artists, either explicitly or implicitly, declare a fascination with the ‘imperfect’ and acknowledge the critical role spontaneity plays within their creative process. Noise, the glitch, ruptures our frame of reference and points to the ‘anywhere’ that is potentially and virtually awaiting us out of the world.
