Bruce Nauman: Days
ICA Lower Gallery
Join us for the UK premiere of Bruce Naumanâ€™s seminal work Days, a
sound installation which presents a continuous stream of seven voices
reciting the days of the week in random order. Days invokes both the
banality and the profundity of the passing of each day and invites
reflection on how we measure, differentiate and commemorate time.
Bruce Nauman continues to test rational systems of language, spatial
and bodily encounters, duration and psychology through constructed
environments. His pioneering work spans over five decades and
encompasses a wide spectrum of media.
ICA Upper Gallery
Accompanying the Bruce Nauman private view, there will be a preview
in the ICA Upper Gallery of SOUNDWORKS, an online presentation of over
one hundred international artists, selected by the ICA and art
Artists have submitted sound files taking their stimulus from the
themes evoked in Days. The project aims to take a broader look at the
range of work being produced in audio arts today.
The submitted audio works will also be accessible at
launched 19 June, as well as in the ICA galleries.
