GRADY GERBRACHT

Page 1 | Biography


<< The site-specific color digital C-prints (at left) were made for an exhibition at the Kunstbunker, an exhibition space located in a WWII air raid shelter below the city of Nuremberg.

Long photographic exposures were made in the exhibition space with the lights off revealing the green glow-in-the-dark marks used to navigate the space during air raids.

see www.gradygerbracht.net for a more detailed description

<< The diagram to the left is from the Site&Sound series - spatial portraits rendered in sound.



The images at right are from the Commutes: NJ Transit series - situational performance-installations occurring on public transportation. >>
STATEMENT

My work focuses on the ordering systems of everyday life. Inspired by personal observations and life experiences; my projects employ art, architecture, sound and social dynamics to render these systems temporarily visible - drawing them forth from the collective subconscious for review. When we examine the structures that govern daily life, we are confronted by the roles we play in them, as well as the influence they sustain in the construction and maintenance of our identities. By re-inhabiting/re-inventing the spaces of daily life, we experience the vital agency to re-evaluate our relationships to elusive social, cultural and institutional regimes, to each other, and to ourselves.






The image at right is from the production of Site&Sound for Engine 27, a site specific generative multi-channel audio installation produced during a residency at Engine 27. >>
<< The image to the left is from the Commutes: MTA series. It is documentation of a performance enacted in the 42nd Street/Times Square subway station. I constructed a special attaché to carry on my daily commute. It's dimentions are based on the difference betwen my body and a peculiar hole in the ceiling. When I reach the site, I place the ataché beneath the hole and step up, inserting my body betwen the ataché and the ceiling, with my head in the depth of the hole. I pause here for a few moments, allowing this landmark a place on my personal itinerary, then I move on. . .
