Peter Blamey

Peter Blamey is a Sydney-based artist. His work explores sound, energies and residues, and the relationships between people, technologies and environments. His practice is typically grass roots and ‘hands-on’, and frequently involves establishing interactions between disparate everyday materials to produce performances, artworks and installations aimed (in part) at reimagining our experiences of connectivity, variability and use.

Peter has performed extensively, including appearances at both experimental music and arts festivals such as What is Music, Liquid Architecture, Electrofringe, the NOWnow, the Biennale of Sydney, Cementa 13 and 15, and ISEA 2013. His work has been exhibited at Artspace, SNO projects, Serial Space, ICAN, Hardware, Westspace, Bus Projects, NGV, Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia (CACSA), and iCAN (Yogyakarta, Indonesia), amongst others. Currently his work is included in Material Sound, at Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA).

In his Art Forum Residues and Experiences, Peter will present a wide-ranging talk, covering everything from sound, working with both garbage and the natural environment, technological artefacts, energy scavenging, science history, idiosyncratic performance techniques, and drawing on some recent projects as examples, which will hopefully communicate something about my experiences with conceptualising and developing performance and exhibition practices within an energetic context.

Peter is a SOCA Artist in Residence.

Arts Forum is a weekly series of free public lectures held at the School of Creative Arts, Hunter Street Campus, during the semester. The series provides a unique opportunity to hear local, national and international visiting artists, scholars and presenters from diverse sectors of the Creative Arts discuss their area of professional practice. All current students, prospective students, and members of the public are welcome.
