Orange Regional Gallery | Relay League
From Saturday 30 March – Sunday 12 May, Orange Regional Gallery will be exhibiting a new video installation which reinterprets Morse code through music, choreography and non-verbal communication.
Relay League was created by Angelica Mesiti and specifically examines the last message transmitted in Morse code, which was sent by the French Navy on 31 January 1997 to confirm that after 130 years, it was finally being replaced with digital communications. Mesiti uses the dots and dashes in this last message as the guide for the music, choreography and non-verbal communication in Relay League.
Relay League was curated and developed by Artspace and is touring nationally with Museums & Galleries of NSW. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. The development and presentation of Relay League is supported by Commissioning Partner the Keir Foundation. Relay League was produced with the support of C ND National de la Danse, Paris and University of New South Wales Art & Design. Relay League will be accompanied by a book published by Schwartz City and designed by Formist.
