Kinetica Art Fair 2011, with Pe Lang and Raphael Perret_February

Kinetica Art Fair is produced by Kinetica Museum and is the first of its kind in the UK. It brings together galleries, art organisations and curatorial groups from around the world which focus on universal concepts and evolutionary processes though the convergence of kinetic, electronic, robotic, sound, light, time-based and multi-disciplinary new media art, science and technology.
The Fair provides an international platform for museums, collectors, curators and the public to view and buy artworks in this thriving and advancing field. Alongside the Fair there will be special events, screenings, tours, talks, workshops and performances.

Pe Lang is a Swiss artist who creates installations by assembling magnetic, electrical and mechanical devices; he also invents new devices and prototypes. The resulting works are of outstanding quality and perfect for Kinetica Art Fair because of their elegant and minimal kinetic qualities.
Raphael Perret is an artist and research associate who has exhibited work in Zurich and Basel, and more recently in the Czech Republic and South Korea. His work encompasses interactive kinetic audio installations that create gestural marks from the vibrations of music and other sounds plugged into the system by the viewer.
