Peter Blamey

Peter Blamey is a Sydney-based artist. His work explores sound, energies and residues, and the relationships between people, technologies and environments. His practice is typically grass roots and ‘hands-on’, and frequently involves establishing interactions between disparate everyday materials to produce performances, artworks and installations aimed (in part) at reimagining accepted notions of connectivity, variability and use.

Peter has performed extensively, including appearances at both experimental music and arts festivals such as What is Music, Liquid Architecture, Electrofringe, the NOWnow, the Biennale of Sydney, Cementa 13 and 15, and ISEA 2013. He has collaborated with a range of local and international artists, including Jim Denley, Adam Süssmann, Emily Morandini, Clare Cooper, Anthony Guerra, Rosalind Hall, Kusum Normoyle (in the duo Hard Hat), Dale Gorfinkel, Wukir Suryadi, Sean Baxter, Vicky Browne and Matt Earle. His work has been exhibited at Artspace, SNO projects, Serial Space, ICAN and Hardware galleries in Sydney; Westspace, Bus Projects, and NGV in Melbourne; CACSA in Adelaide; and at iCAN in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Sound works have been included in numerous sound-based art survey exhibitions, including Variable Resistance: ten hours of sound from Australia (SFMOMA, 2002), D>Art.05 Sound (2005) and Music and Technology Month, Issue Project Room, NY (2010). Beyond that, Peter was previously a director of Pelt gallery in Sydney, and currently plays drums in Your Intestines.
