Audra Wolowiec

Lecturer in Art+Design

Audra Wolowiec is an interdisciplinary artist whose work oscillates between sculpture, installation, text and performance with an emphasis on sound and the material qualities of language. Her sound installations and experimental language scores use the gap, space, or breath in between speech, as ciphers to amplify an undercurrent of language. These scores, or language-based artworks, draw on the traditions of musical notation and experimental writing techniques. They provide conceptual and poetic frameworks for the installations and exist in the form of take-away posters, books, and prints.

Wolowiec’s work has been shown internationally and in the United States at MASS MoCA, CCS Bard Hessel Museum, Stony Brook University, Art in General, and Studio 10. Readings and events have taken place at MoMA PS1, The Poetry Project, Microscope Gallery, and Center for Performance Research. Her work has been featured in BOMB Magazine, Modern Painters, The New York Times, The Brooklyn Rail, CAA Journal, Sound American, and reductive journal. Residencies include Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Complex Systems Art and Physics Residency at the University of Oregon supported by a National Science Foundation Grant, and Dieu Donné.
