Re/Flux | SoundFjord at Everything, ICA

Sat Jul 16, 2011 20:20 - Sat Jul 16, 2011

London, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland


16 July 2011


Live music, performance and DJs to entertain you all night long at
this free night of creative talent led by Thomas Shickle and Aisha
Christison from the ICA’s Student Forum. Everything brings together
emerging artists, designers, musicians and everyone creative for a night
of performance and dance, experimentation and literature, interaction
and music and even yoga and fashion. Everything makes clubbing a
creative experience and art a party.
For July's edition of Everything SoundFjord curates
an evening of immersive sound and vision in the form of an extended
screening of absorbing, contemplative sound art and elastic, subsuming
imagery. These works have been especially selected to define the concept
of the 'Sublimated Landscape' by exploring the saturation of the sonic
and visual field, represented by works of immersive sound and visual
art. Using the notion of 'sublimation' as a point of departure, the
screening has been expanded to encompass an exploration of sonic
topology through the framing, shaping and distortion of sound, image and
Featured Artists:

SoundFjord | Exhibition | Catherine Clover | birdbrain

Sat Jun 18, 2011 16:00 - Sat Jul 30, 2011

Tottenham, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Catherine Clover | birdbrain | Dates: 18 June – 30 July 2011 | Opening: Saturday 18 June 4 - 6pm 
birdbrain looks at our relationship with urban crows and seagulls and explores our mixed relationship with these common noisy and highly intelligent birds through voice and language (animal/human), including the spoken and written word (human). While we admire these birds’ obvious abilities in terms of survival, intelligence and ingenuity we also feel threatened by these very attributes that we share with them.
The project consists of audiovisual installation work including field recordings, bird mimicry, spoken and written texts, as well as an artist’s book posing as a kind of mock field guide. Four performers and ten writers have contributed to the project.
*Catherine Clover was born and brought up in London, UK, and trained at Wimbledon School of Art/North East London Polytechnic in Fine Art [Painting]. After several years practice based in Angel Studios, EC1, she pursued a residency with Gertrude Street Artists Spaces in Melbourne, Australia and has been based there since the mid 90s. Her current practice explores sound, digital imaging and installation to look at ideas surrounding our changing relationship with nature, and in particular, other animals. The everyday - the quotidian, the common - inform this exploration.
Recent projects and installations include Calling the Birds II Trocadero Art Space Melbourne AU Oct 2010; Pigeon Post Mailbox 141 Melbourne AU June 2010; billing and cooing Billboard@Trocadero Melbourne AU May 2010; Sounds of my Neighbourhood MusikTriennale Koln Germany May 2010; Alternating Current: Sound Art Now Dragonfly Festival Sweden April 2010; coroocoo Anna Leonowens Gallery NSCAD University Halifax NS Canada Feb 2010; Pestival Radio broadcast on Resonance FM, London UK 2009; Minding Animals conference and exhibition The Lock Up Newcastle NSW AU 2009; Sound Diaries Conference Presentation Oxford Brookes University Oxford UK
