Fari Bradley

Fari Bradley (b. Tehran) & Chris Weaver (b. London) are artists working collaboratively across a variety of performance and media practices. Focusing their enquiries on the cognitive, physical and architectural potential of sound, their works encompass experimental music, radio, performance, and sculpture. In a field of perception dominated by visual culture, the pair investigates acoustics as a means to establish and question new sets of social relations between subjects and space. Their diverse backgrounds come together in an analytical interest in sound and the tools that it can provide for expanded cultural analysis. Working together since 2006, Bradley and Weaver have released vinyl records, composed and performed music works, and participated in thematic group shows across the UK. Since 2013, they have been active in the Dubai art scene with major commissions for Art Dubai, a long- term residency and solo exhibition at Tashkeel and the release of a new artists edition record with The Vinyl Factory.
