Richard Garet, Affects/Effects

Sound and visual artist Richard Garet meets host David Weinstein to talk about his project room installation at the Clocktower Gallery in January 2013. Garet reveals his early influences, how playing with footpedals can redirect a young punk rocker, technology, programmatic content, and much more. Artifacts of information (some may say noise) have become Garet's epigraph in these works: sound affects the image and, vice versa, the image affects sound.

Garet's work at the Clocktower involved three works co-existing, he called it a conversation between them, in the same space. In this segment are excerpts from his audio pieces L'avenir, Winter and an excerpt from his live performance at SFMOMA, Activating the Medium from 2011.

Richard Garet interweaves various media including moving image, sound, multimedia performance, and photography. In work ranging from modified environments to site specific installations to audiovisual screening works, Garet constructs intimate spaces and immersive situations that draw attention to the processes of perception and cognition, and which activate sensorial, physical, psychological phenomena that reflect on the nature and experience of time.

Clocktower Exhibits & Events


The Clocktower Gallery was founded by the alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After a hiatus as a gallery space (after the Sept. 11, 2001 events nearby), the Clocktower Gallery reinaugurated its exhibition programming in 2005 as part of MoMA/PS1 and, after 2008, under the auspices of the newly founded Art International Radio (now Clocktower Productions). Clocktower Exhibits is home to interviews with and performances by its exhibitions' participating artists and curators over these many years.

For more Clocktower history, listen to The Clocktower Oral History Project, in which such figures as Vito Acconci, Bill Beirne, Colette, Jeffrey Deitch, Mary Heilmann, Jene Highstein, Ann Magnuson, Richard Nonas and Joel Shapiro reflect upon their experiences with this unique New York space. Organized by artist Nancy Hwang for the Fall 2009 AVANT-GUIDE TO NYC: Discovering Absence exhibition at apexart. .
