Oliver Beer’s practice engages with sound, architecture and the memory of objects. Impossible Composition reflects Beer’s experience as an artist in residence at the Sydney Opera House in 2018. The works draw on the design principles of its architect, Jørn Utzon, who saw the space ‘like a violin’. In turn, Beer sought to ‘tune’ the building, allowing Utzon’s labyrinthine structure to be played as an instrument.
