Shilpa Gupta - Someone Else

Today was the last day of the Shilpa Gupta (and Sophy Rickett) exhibition at the Arnolfini. Gupta's Someone Else focuses on aesthetic perception, fear and otherness both politically and psychologically through various means of media. Singing Cloud (2008-9) in particular creates the suppressive, haunting feeling that is echoed throughout the works with its reversed wired microphones, 4000 in total, that emit the abstracted sounds and noises from the results of various psychological tests. Suitably unnerving and thought-provoking.
