GALLERY IS OPEN TUE – SAT, 10am – 4pm
Featuring paintings by Katie Barons and Luke Mintowt-Czyz, tutors at Arts University Bournemouth, and a video/sound installation by Eden Alarcon, Sophie Baudains, Jovita Bhengra, Jessica Brauner, Lauren Nulty, Indra Nyquist, Taylor Stankowski and Richard Waring, this exhibition reveals how ten artists explore their sensations of landscape.
How are experiences of sensing the character of a landscape transformed into a painted surface or a sonic action? How does the person’s diverse knowledge of that place inform the artwork?
During an artist residency period whilst studying on the BA (Hons) Fine Art Degree at Arts University Bournemouth, in collaboration with their tutor Richard Waring, a group of artists worked on a contemporary art project called Sonic Camouflage. Sonic Camouflage responds to an ancient language, the Hammer Whistle or sfyria, invented to disguise the human voice as bird song in order to evade capture by an enemy. This form of communication is still in use on the Greek island of Evia and is listed as critically endangered by UNESCO. The results of this project are featured in this exhibition in the form of a video/sound installation.
