Anne Bean and the Bow Gamelan Ensemble

27 October – 15 December 2018 

Great Noises that Fill the Air at the Cooper Gallery, Dundee is the first retrospective of the influential artist collective Bow Gamelan Ensemble (Anne Bean, Paul Burwell, Richard Wilson). “Utilising found objects, invented instruments and everyday sound, Bow Gamelan Ensemble have, since 1983, inspired generations of artists with their radical collaborative and cross-disciplinary practice. Charged with their individual virtuosity in performance art, avant-garde music and kinetic sculpture, Bow Gamelan Ensemble’s sound installations and performances are immersed in an orchestra of instruments made from scrap metal, electric motors, river barges and domestic objects including glass sheets, light bulbs and fireworks.”
