Artists Fari Bradley and Chris Weaver collaborate across a variety of performance, sculpture, and media practices. They work with experimental music, radio, performance, and sculpture, and, in a world dominated by visual culture, investigate sound as a means to establish and question new sets of social relations between subjects and space.
Working together since 2006, they have composed, performed, and released music and sound works and participated in group and solo shows the globe over. They have broadcast from inside art fairs (e.g. Frieze, Art Dubai), galleries (e.g. Tate Modern, Serpentine), temporary shelters, and council flats. Three of the pair's recent projects include a recording booth inside an art gallery in the United Arab Emirates, an artist's edition record featuring hand-made weaving on the sleeve, and a research-based residency in Karachi, Pakistan.
The programme takes the form of an imaginary audio tour for the blind and partially sighted, guiding museum visitors around a room in the exhibition, ‘The Box in the Majilis’. The exhibition contains objects that illustrate the changing role of radio broadcasting and reception in the United Arab Emirates between 1950-1990s.more
