Jony Easterby, West Bromwich
Jony Easterby's Carillon Shadows takes place in The Public's Black Gallery as part of its Art Of Noise programme..... Easterby adapts the numinous aura of the bell-tower carillon to the enchanting possibilities activated by hi-tech electronic sensors set within the primal spookiness of a darkened room. His work is organic and dreamlike, almost oceanic in its intimations of delicately rippling worlds engulfed by the massive forces of nature. Engaging with an Easterby installation involves a degree of childlike wonderment, like one gets from staring at waves in the sea or flames in the fire. We seem to be ready programmed to respond and Easterby well knows it.
Until Jan 15th 2012.
