TACTIC Cork and Sample-Studios are proud to present APEIRON, a new body of work from their 2017/2018 Artist in residence Chloë Tétrault-Kearney.

APEIRON continues Tétrault’s exploration of our connection to the material world as conscious temporal beings. The exhibition takes its name from 6th Century Greek philosopher Anaximander’s theory of how creative processes create reality. The work’s force is to shift and re-engage with understandings of our embodied experience combining research on elemental philosophy, alchemy, the natural sciences, and mythologies of origin. Looking to primordial and elemental ways of speaking about the body, her works look to understand the apparent and concealed
aspects that make up our encounter with the material world and how this shapes experience. Through the installation’s site-responsive strategy, Tétrault proposes a space holding primary transmutations and opposing forces. These are latent and active, both guiding principles in the material world. The work traces formational points of raw materiality, latent potentials, and emptiness through the language of the natural elements. APEIRON suggests that these intensities of conversion may serve as an analogy for our own amorphic sentience experienced internally.

The painted panels present fundamentals of materiality; physical pressure, formation and shifting, weight, space and opposing spectrums. The sounds are a combination of latent and active recordings generated directly from the physical body of the space through field recordings and resonant frequency (the frequency naturally generated by the space). These are then combined with manipulated sounds and pink sound (all frequencies heard simultaneously). The first projected work uses manipulated footage of water in an attempt to create a shifting dynamic space not bound by form. The second projected work places the human body within this limitless space.

APEIRON is an exploration of embodiment. It suggests experiencing materiality as a state of convergence between the fixed and mutable, the active and latent, the temporal and boundless.

Chloë Tétrault-Kearney is an artist currently residing in Cork City. She is an alumnus of Crawford College of Art and Design, graduating in 2017 with a BA in Fine Art. Tétrault received the 2017/2018 Artist in residence award from Sample-Studios.
