GAIL PRIEST is a Sydney-based artist with a multi-faceted practice in which sound is the key material of communication and investigation. Her work comprises solo electro-acoustic performance and recordings, sound installations for gallery contexts, sound design for performance and video, as well as curation, critique and advocacy.
Her ongoing interest is in exploiting the liminal zone between figuration and abstraction, meaning-making and meaning breaking. In her gallery practice she seeks to create immersive listening environments that actively engage audiences, luring them into a heightened auditory realm, and challenging the visual-bias of the both the gallery and contemporary living.
She has presented performances and exhibitions nationally and internationally including Sydney, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Helsinki and Berlin. In 2015-16 she has been awarded an Emerging & Experimental Arts Fellowship from the Australia Council. http://www.gailpriest.net
