Light & Sie Gallery presents: Terence Hannum Don’t Give Up the Ghost
For Don’t Give Up The Ghost, Terence will present the world premiere of “The Badge of Punishment,” a two-channel video installation featuring the band, Prurient.
Light & Sie is proud to present the solo debut of Chicago-based multi-media artist, Terence Hannum. Working concurrently in video, painting and sculpture, Terence’s themes focus on the transcendence and impermanence of sound and performance, and the group catharsis experienced by those who surrender to them. The exhibit will be on display from February 28 – April 5. The complimentary opening reception is 5-8pm on Thursday, February 28 in which Terence Hannum will be making an appearance.
For Don’t Give Up The Ghost, Terence will present the world premiere of “The Badge of Punishment,” a two-channel video installation featuring the band, Prurient. In addition, Terence will also present new paintings, sculpture and drawings.
Hannum writes: “Witnessing a music performance, performing music and listening to recorded music enter the realm of ritual. They are all sacrificial acts, for the performer and the audience. In an era where the physical presence of the recorded object is vanishing, I find it all the more important to focus on its trace. These objects occupy aural space with their contents but also occupy physical space. While the recorded object is the document, the relic; the live event is the ultimate channelization of noise, as well as the place of immediate surrender to it. In the live event, with its group catharsis, the mesh of noise, bodies and heat; I choose to focus on the documentation of these performances.”
Terence Hannum received his BA in Studio Art & Philosophy from Florida Southern College, and his MFA in Painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has been the subject of a 12 x 12 Exhibition at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and this past summer was included in the exhibition, Silence: Listen to the Music, curated by Francesco Bonami at the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin.
