Simon Whetham: Active Crossover
Arnolfini Dark Studio
16 Narrow Quay
Thursday 1st – Sunday 18th, October 2009
Open 10.00am – 6.00pm Tuesday – Sunday
A sound installation utilizing two sonic chambers, but allowing for controlled sound-bleed between spaces, it features an immersive composition created while Simon was artist-in-residence at the Polymer Factory Culturehouse (in Tallinn, Estonia) juxtaposed with pieces by artists Simon collaborated, performed and worked with during the residency.
The opening night of the exhibition will feature performances from John Grzinich (EE), Maksims Shentelevs (LV), Jez Riley French (UK) and Simon himself. The closing night will also feature performances, where Simon will be joined by Douglas Benford and Iris Garrelfs of Sprawl, and a number of invited local artists.
To coincide with the exhibition John and Simon will also run listening and recording workshops from the 26th September 2009.
