Description

Petzel presents an exhibition to accompany Frames and variations, an experiential exhibition, encompassing sound, film and performance, by Hong Kong-based artist Samson Young. The show marks Young’s debut solo exhibition with the gallery and will be on view from January 20th to March 4th, 2023, at Petzel’s new Chelsea location at 520 W 25th Street. Inspired by the perception of sound and how it is distorted and concealed in cinema, this exhibition is comprised of two new immersive installations that center on the effects of situated listening. Young examines the spatial relationships between the aural source and the viewer’s vision, adding to an illusion of sound that encircles the viewer sonically and visually.
