ERIC DEMETRIOU

Eric Demetriou creates work that incites a thrill-seeking experience flirting with trouble, danger and pleasure, through outcomes of kinetic sound-based sculpture. Compiling a body of work that investigates the application of noise, partnered with a mischievous demeanor, Demetriou’s research focuses on connotations of noise being an undesired excess material, with a political economy that anticipates a reception of hostility. Given the etymology of noise with its Latin nausea and associations with obstruction and interruption - this is not surprising. While mischievous behaviour functions with a similar anti-aesthetic and necessity for resistance, its reception is much less offensive and often even forgivable.

 

Eric Demetriou was the winner of the 2014 Linden Art Prize and has shown at galleries around Australia, including Federation Square, Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts, West Space, Contemporary Art Space Tasmania (CAST), Sawtooth ARI, Bus Projects, Blindside, Gertrude Contemporary, and The Substation. As a performer, he has performed in venues and events such as The MCA Art Bar, Melbourne Art Centre, The Avoca Project, West Space, The International Noise Conference, Boogie Festival, and The University of Melbourne Car-Park.
