Strange Attractor grew from a durational performance in the Crawford Art
Gallery’s historic sculpture gallery to launch the AVANT festival of
progressive arts in 2009. The project’s exciting development has seen a
series of collaborative ventures between the five artists. Strange Attractor
has grown through conversation, collaboration and perhaps a little idealism
from simple structures to create monthly visual and sound performances. So
that international sound artists were invited to ‘play’ over a four- hour
period with the five protagonists; each ‘gig’ residing in alternating spaces
in the Crawford Art Gallery.

‘The monthly performances or gigs were in hindsight preparation and test
sites, as Strange Attractor took its next form in a month long residency in
Crawford Art Gallery in April 2011. Here the artists moved into two
large-scale temporary exhibition galleries, both as a group and as
individuals, creating components to form an evolving instrument that the
listener/viewer could explore’.

Dawn Williams, Curator, Crawford Art Gallery

The full colour publication includes essays by Jed Speare, Steve Roden,
David Toop, Stephen Vitiello, Claire Healy and Bernard Clarke.

The DVD includes live excerpts of the performances and a documentary about
the project.
