Research Symposium Sounding Centres
MA Sound Arts graduate exhibition 2018
Friday 7 December, 5pm–7.30pm
Sound Arts Performance Lab (M108), London College of Communication
In response to the MA Sound Arts graduate exhibition Sounding Centres, part of the LCC Postgraduate Show 2018, this symposium will focus on the theme of ‘sounding centers’ in relation to the works in the exhibition. With talks from Katja Hilevaara, Emily Orley and Sophie Mallett, as well as contributions from the artists and the Course Leader Thomas Gardner, chaired by Salomé Voegelin. The symposium will also be an opportunity to engage with the MA Sound Artists' research, as well as the curation of their work and through direct conversation.
Katja Hilevaara is a collaborative artist, researcher and teacher who works in performance, installation and art-writing. Her research is concerned with (mis-) remembering, creative constraint and ideas surrounding maintenance, care and enchantment. She lectures at Goldsmiths, University of London.
Emily Orley is a practitioner-researcher whose work includes performance, installation and art- (or place- or commemorative-) writing. She has been making work on her own and in collaboration for 16 years, locally and internationally, and currently lectures at the University of Roehampton in the Drama, Theatre and Performance Department.
Sophie Mallett is an artist and filmmaker working in London. Her work revolves around landscapes of global capital: from the swelling border towns of ‘Fortress Europe’ to the virtual factories of microwork. Developed out of research and contact with these physical, social and virtual environments, her practice concentrates on how financial, architectural and social worlds are constructed and controlled, and in turn affect our ability to co-exist. Using video, text, installation and sound she pursues a practice at the intersection of affect, politics and value. Through close attention she opens up spaces of discomfort, both within and outside of the gallery, that acknowledge clandestine societal norms, complicity and dysfunctional ethics.
