JUXTAVOICES AT SHEFFIELD INSTITUTE OF ARTS
In conjunction with SIA's / Site Gallery's "Listening" event, curated by Sam Belinfante, Juxtavoices have been invited to present an event for voices and video works.
The 30 voice antichoir will be performing these pieces:
Western Works - Music by Cabaret Voltaire, arranged Martin Archer - video by Bo Meson
Helvetica - Music by Alan Halsey and Juxtavoices based on a visual work by Derek Beaulieu - video by Bo Meson
RMMV Asturias - Music by Alan Halsey & Walt Shaw
In particular we're very excited to have the opportunity to reprise our Western Works piece, originally composed for an event at Sheffield University in 2014.
Listening brings a group of international artists together to interrogate the act of listening in contemporary art. This pioneering exhibition examines the crossover between the visual and the sonic and their complex relationships to the senses.
Sam Belinfante, winner of the Hayward Touring Curatorial Open 2014, has selected new and existing work, including drawings, sculpture, prints and video, and works in the exhibition range dramatically in duration from less than a second to six hours. Visitors can hear a clap of thunder that has been stretched in duration and aurally dissected, recreated by musicians and morphed back into a thunderclap; eavesdrop on a cabin in a forest and listen to the almost inaudible sound of a dying star.
Artists include: Laurie Anderson, Ed Atkins, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, Mikhail Karikis, Ragnar Kjartansson, Lina Lapelyte, Christian Marclay, Haroon Mirza, Max Neuhaus, Katie Paterson, Amalia Pica, Laure Prouvost, Hannah Rickards, Prem Sahib, Anri Sala, Imogen Stidworthy and Carey Young.
