Richard Crow: Institution of Rot
Biography: Richard Crow is an inter-disciplinary artist working in the field of experimental audio research, live performance and site-specific installation. He utilizes sound and noise in a performative way and for its disruptive and subjective qualities and above all for its psycho-physical implications for the listener and viewer. Over the past two decades his solo and collaborative site-specific installations and performances have consisted of highly conceptualized interventions into base materiality, investigations of alternative systems of organisation and research into a certain material decadence, most notably with the project The Institution of Rot which he co-founded with the writer Nick Couldry in 1992. Since 2007 Crow has collaborated with Sound Threshold, which was established by Daniela Cascella and Lucia Farinati. Crow has shown extensively in Europe, and internationally including Russia, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
