Sean Regan and Ani Samperi

February 1-8, 2021

Ani Samperi and Sean Regan occupied the gallery space for one week to collaborate on their ongoing musical instrument building project. In their book on the cut-up technique, William S. Burroughs and Brion Gysin say that whenever two people collaborate, a ‘third mind’ is always present. Over seven days of exploration, experimentation, improvisation, instrument building and listening, Samperi and Regan sought to develop a collaborative improvisational presence, distinct from the voices of the two human participants. The artists documented their discoveries and experiences from their gallery dwelling throughout the week. Each night at 8pm, the artists live-streamed their work in progress as live streamed, free-form sonic lab-report of their findings.
