Untitled (Ground) is a series of new works incorporating photography, sound, and installation that continues Graydon’s exploration of media in relation to the phenomenal, architectural, and social constructions that make up our composite notion of place. The latest in his series of “science-fiction ecologies”, this work originates in the artist’s birthplace on the islands of Hawaii. The islands constitute the “ground” of the show’s title, with sound and image recordings forming a kind of informal field study of a place that is at once exotic and yet intimately familiar to the artist, where personal memories, associations and resonances are embedded in each location.
Andy Graydon lives and works in New York City. His work has recently been exhibited in Unmonumental at The New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, 2008; Displacement at Greenbelt, Brooklyn, 2008; Room Works at The Portland Art Center, Portland OR, 2007. Sound releases are forthcoming in 2008 from White_Line Editions (UK), and Leerraum (Switzerland).
