I will be performing a live set this Friday morning- around 9.15 am- on Graham Dunning’s ( @grahamdunning ) radio show Fractal Meat on a Spongy Bone for NTS ( ntslive ) ( @ntslive ) - using some of the objects I have been using at Testing Ground- Zabludowicz Collection.
My first ever sound piece made in 2012 by using the Merz Barn as an instrument which resulted in this Sound Collage made up of recordings from inside and outside of the structure and from objects collected from in and around the barn. The Merz Barn Project is the site of Kurt Schwitter’s final Merzbau art work.
Debbie Sharp- The Penthouse Director launches issue based project ' a bottle of coke and a packet of crisps ' with a Kickstarter for book project
'a bottle of coke and a packet of crisps' is an in depth research project and subsequent 3 exhibitions and series of public events across 3 key cities- Manchester, Bradford and Leeds with accompanying book. The project takes Debbie's encounter with a Yorkshire ripper victim as a starting point- exploring fear, the landscape of the time- and women's reactions to being told to stay inside/away at night for their own safety. This part of history is explored parallel to contemporary issues- and crosses generations to bring together a shared truth and a view for the future. Research and conversation starts during Reclaim the Night Marches, Leeds- November 16 2013.
Be part of the project and support the book project- which will provide an affordable accompaniment to the work which will share findings, conversation, art works, stories and current activism on topics explored. This Kickstarter provides a platform to support the book project - choose your donation and await your part of the project in return!
