Sound/Image 2022 Exhibition

Mhairi Vari and David Waterworth

  • 18th Nov - 16th Dec 2022
  • Stephen Lawrence Gallery, Project Space

Held in association with the University of Greenwich Sound/Image Conference 2022, this exhibition is selected from an international field of audio-visual practitioners, working across a range of media including installation, VR, video and works on paper. The individual works presented touch gently upon space, emptiness, silence, brevity and decay, while they resonate together within the gallery spaces to create an interactive conceptual and experiential journey through sound.

Exhibitors and Works:

Project Space: Liam Dougherty (USA) A Renewed Commitment to Life and Decay, Always. This large-scale installation marries the audio and visual elements of a deconstructed piano. Susana Gomez Larannaga (UK), exhibits a series of prints. Andrea Oliver Roberts (Canada), whose work, Mirror for Recluses, is a sited audio installation (00:15), while Jan Swinburne (Canada) shows Internet Songlines, six, silent, video renders of spoken word.

Stephen Lawrence Gallery: Giacomo Fargion (UK), shows Sixty Miniatures, an experimental, electronic sound-with-video projection (60:00).
