MANCHESTER.- Recorders is a major exhibition by Mexican-Canadian electronic artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. The artworks in Recorders see, hear and feel the actions of people around them, using technology to create a playful yet ominous experience. This solo exhibition features seven recent pieces by the artist, including the world premieres of two specially commissioned new installations.

Lozano-Hemmer’s artworks depend on the participation of visitors to exist and develop, as the artist describes:

“In Recorders, artworks hear, see and feel the public, they exhibit awareness and record and replay memories entirely obtained during the show. The pieces either depend on participation to exist or predatorily gather information on the public through surveillance and biometric technologies.”

Highlights of the exhibition include Pulse Room, on show in the UK for the very first time. Premiered in Puebla, Mexico in 2006 and shown to critical acclaim in the Mexican pavilion for the Venice Biennale in 2007, this compelling work is made up of 100 light bulbs which are activated by a sensor to flash at the exact rhythm of particpants' heart rates. Also, the work People on People (a co-commission by Manchester Art Gallery and Abandon Normal Devices festival), a major new installation inspired by portraiture and shadowplays, which will turn the gallery's temporary exhibition space into one of the world's most advanced scanners.

Manchester Art Gallery is the only UK venue for the show so this is an interactive experience not to be missed.
