Marla Hlady: Rooms & Walls
Martin Arnold, Marnie Fleming and John Massier
The multidisciplinary practice of Toronto-based artist Marla Hlady is characterized by playful explorations into the mechanics and expressive possibilities of structure and sound. This publication documents new work inspired by the acoustic nature of the gallery itself which was once a private residence. By constructing three-dimensional scale models of each room in the building, Hlady provides visible analogies for the gallery's architecture that also serve as “sound objects," emitting recordings of each space's unique tones.
