Alongside Sriwhana Spong’s exhibition, a hook but no fish, artists Rebecca Glover and Fritha Jenkins present ‘Sounding objects’. Drop in to the gallery’s Project Space during gallery opening hours to discover a landscape made from found objects and sculptures waiting to be tapped, rattled and played by visitors. Explore the sonic properties, voice and identity of the objects on display and use them to create your own soundscape. Experience sound in a fresh way after listening to a guided sound walk of the park and creating your own musical score using the sounds of the park.
Join us on 25 March as the project culminates in a final performance by the artists, working with all the sounds, surfaces and sculptures that have been developed and collected.
