Lyric Underground

LYRIC UNDERGROUND

by TONICO LEMOS AUAD


A web commission produced for Gasworks Gallery in collaboration with Red Leader Industries.


For this commission, Auad, who is inspired by incidental daily experiences has developed a work which explores busking on the London Underground. Auad's interest lies in the relationships between the buskers, their music, the architecture of the Underground and the experience of the traveller on the tube. Auad invites the viewer to navigate the piece which is reminisent of a jukebox, with a layering of film footage, photographs, lyrics and drawings for each respective 'track.'
