Video installation opens at GRU art gallery for Westobou Festival

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

A unique video installation on the human voice opens at the Mary S. Byrd Gallery of Art at Georgia Regents University Monday in partnership with the Westobou Festival.

First exhibited in 1999 at Le Fresnoy in Lille, France, "Voice Off" by Judith Barry explores how the voice can be experienced through both its possession and loss.

The installation, built to fit the dimensions of the Byrd Gallery in Washington Hall of GRU's Summerville campus, divides the gallery into two rooms. In one, a dream-like succession of characters engage with the voice. In the other, a man searches for the source of the mysterious sounds.

"The viewer becomes immersed in Barry's interactive representation of the voiceʼs intangibility," Gallery Director Liselott Johnsson said. "We're fortunate that the artist herself will be here for an artist talk and opening reception during the installation, which has been generously sponsored by the Westobou Festival."

The free exhibit is open to the public Sept. 22-Oct. 10 at the gallery. Events include:

Artist Talk with Judith Barry

5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 2

University Hall, room 170

Opening Reception

6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 2

Mary S. Byrd Gallery of Art, Washington Hall
